You are getting ready for work and as usual you grab the curling iron. You have already had your first cup of coffee and you get a really good look at it. Ewwww, what is all that stuff on it?
As you use your curling iron hair spray will build up on your iron. Since it is an electrical appliance do not attempt to clean it while it is plugged in.
Once the curling iron has been unplugged and is cool you can clean off your iron with a damp rag.
If you can't quite get it all, or it is being stubborn, grab a bottle of rubbing alcohol and dab some on your rag. This should clean the rest of the hairspray off with little effort.
