How to Remove Burnt Gunk from Hot Iron/Straightner/Curling Iron

Updated on March 24, 2014

Remove Gunk from Straightening IRON/ Curling Iron

There is a very easy solution to removing the burnt gunk/look from your hair styling products. I had no idea it was so easy. All you need is some regular nail polish remover (acetone). Wipe off your hair styling device with acetone and viola! Your straightner or curling iron will look brand new!

Have you thought about buying a new straightner because your current one is turning brown and seems to catch on your hair? No need... the acetone will create a new shiny surface again.

All you need is ACETONE!

Simply apply the acetone and wipe dry for immediate results. You can use regular acetone or the 100%acetone formula -- either will work and not destroy the finish of your hair styling appliance.

      I have a curling iron that could really use this... thank you for sharing. I will give this a try. I'm sure it would work lots better with all of that gunk off of it. I also have clothes iron that I accidentally got some sticky stuff on.. I bet it would work to take that off to. Thank you for sharing :)

      Teaches: You only need to wait a couple minutes until the acetone dries. It wouldn't hurt to just wipe down the appliance before using.

      Good to know. I would assume that you have to wait awhile before using the iron again? I need to do this to mine soon. Thanks for the advice.
