Just wax it, and it should be fine

The reason he told you to leave that on there is so that the extra wax, not the base, will be in contact with the elements. It's like a sheath for a knife.

get some wax paper and put it over the iron. that way when you wax you wont get the holes all clogged up, and you can iron your clothing! and no, the wax paper doesn't melt...
