according to the packet on my Magic Film, it should peel off my iron once it's been removed from the fabric with the heat.... but it doesn't and now I have brown smears on my iron. am I doing something wrong?

iron too hot?
The way I get stuff I've accidentally laminated onto my iron off is to use one of those green scrubbies. Can you tell I've done this more than once!

I've got a metally one that I use on all my pots and pans apart from the non-stick coating ones, but my iron has a non stick coating and I've scratched it trying to clean it (boo) with the metal one, so I don't do that anymore.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is fabulous for removing stuff from your COOL iron.  Like magic and not stinky

Offer your husband a cheap iron for the clothes and keep the good one for your "projects". Hehe
