Even though we live in a world filled with steamers and fancy smart driers, if I
want my clothes looking fresh, clean and perfectly pressed, nothing beats an iron.
The concept of using a heated object to smooth out fabrics, that dates back to the
first century but 20 centuries later, today, at 21st century, when we need our
clothes to look their best we're still using irons.
To honor this handy household appliance, I am going to share with you some of my best
ironing tips. Start at the lowest temperature and work your way up. When you
are preparing a load of clothing to iron what you want to do is sort through and
look at the fabric care label. That's going to tell you the temperature that you
should be ironing the garment at.
That way you can order your clothes from coolest temperatures to warmest
temperatures and your iron can work its way up and heat as you work your way
through the piles. By doing this you ensure that every piece of clothing that
you're ironing is being ironed at its optimal temperature. So no scorch marks.
Keep your iron clean. If you ever noticed strange marks or stains on your clothing
after you've ironed, it's a really good chance that stain came from your iron.
It's really important that on a regular basis you're keeping the plate of your
iron clean. Cleaning the metal plate is quite simple. Just create a paste using
two parts baking soda, one part water and apply the paste to the iron. You also want
to avoid any of those steam holes when you're applying the paste that way you
don't have to worry about cleaning it out.
You can apply this using a soft cloth or even a cleaning toothbrush. Then use a
clean cloth and wipe everything clean and dry. Iron in a back-and-forth motion. If
you iron in a circular motion, you can actually stretch out your garments and who
wants that? If you iron in a steady back-and-forth motion so you are not going
too fast and you are not going too slow and you using somewhat of a heavy hand.
You will be sure to get out those wrinkles but without ruining the fabrics.
The aluminum foil trick. If you are looking for ways to cut time when you're
ironing you might want to give this a try. Take tinfoil and line the underside of
your ironing board with the shiny tinfoil facing up. Then replace your ironing board
cover and start to iron your clothing. What you'll notice is that the tinfoil
retains heat and it reflects it back onto the clothing. So every time you pass your
iron over a garment, you're not only applying heat to the top of the garment
but the tinfoil is helping the bottom of the garment get ironed as well. It's
definitely a good time-saver.
Hang your ironing ASAP. The whole idea with ironing is getting rid of wrinkles in
your clothing. But how can you make that happen if you throw your freshly ironed
stuff in a laundry basket? So, the idea here is as soon as you finish ironing something
grabbing a hanger, stick the item on hanger and hang it up. If that means you
iron in your bedroom, great or you hang up a little rack like what I have, perfect.
If you don't have that find something to hang it on, a belt loop, a doorknob, I
don't care just get it vertical.
Keep your ironing board cover clean. Like any garment the first thing you want to do
is check the care label. Because many of these ironing board covers are indeed
machine washable. If it is, put it in your machine with gentle detergent at a gentle
cycle and hang it to dry. Then you want to reapply it back onto the ironing board and
tie it up nice and tight once it's dry so that way it will stay nice and shaped so
you can get as good iron out of it. Now, if it is not machine washable, it might have a
special coating on it or it might be made out of a special fabric- no problem. Just
take a sponge, dip it in in some soapy water, all you need is a little bit of
dish soap or a little bit laundry detergent. Clean off any of those stains,
work that product in, rinse it well, dry it in your ironing board
cover is good to go.
I hope that straightens things out for you when it comes to your pressing ironing
questions. But you know what? The good news is I have lots more ironing
information on the way and a lot of it is up on the website already. You can visit
