 ****HOME REMEDIES ON A BUDGET...... If you don't have the extra cash to spend on the "magic" potions, do not worry you may just have what you need right at home.

Remove grime from your iron: Set the iron on medium with no steam, then run it over a used fabric softener sheet. (the dirt will stick to the sheet)
