Why do we feel electricity while doing iron to a wet cloth?
We feel electricity while ironing wet clothes due to increased drying time. It is recommended that you use a dry towel, which will absorb dampness, hence reduce drying time. You will be able to save energy and time when you iron dry clothes.
Perhaps the iron is not properly grounded or insulated, in which case it is not safe to use.I am not an electrician or other expert, but I would not use the iron.
Yes it sounds like the iron has bad wiring and can be deadly. Get a new iron.
