Cleaning a straightener?

I have a teflon straightener. And everytime I use it it smokes, as if hair products were burning off. And it also make makes my hair greasy, even right after I shampoo. How do I clean it without ruining it?

    OMG please dont scratch it, its teflon!!

    if you had a teflon pot or pan would you sit there and scratch it?!?!

    just WIPE it down, maybe use a LITTLE soap to get the grease off but WIPE WIPE WIPE, dont immerse it in water either

    just use a damp wash cloth. my straightener starts to smell really bad too =(

    also be sure to always wash your brushes too, as those can hold in leftover product & get greasy. just use 2-3 drops of shampoo, and run under warm water.

    Use a dry cloth and clean it after it cooled down to avoid burning yourself:)!
