I never iron in low cut jeans anymore for that very reason!

Yes, been there - lesson in life - never iron naked (I was ironing what I was about to put on IYSWIM)

Never burnt myself with the steam but reached over the iron to get something once - and ended up with a three inch burn on my arm...

I did the same thing as slayerette when I was at uni. Still got the scar!

Put some frozen peas on it

It was 4 days ago and still sore and very red, taken layers off and yucky. I knew it was the steam, so didn't pay much attention as I would if it had been the hot plate of the iron.

Too late for frozen peas I think.
