Love it or hate it, ironing clothes is a skill
Nobody likes creased clothes, and ironing tends to be a task that’s often put off until the last minute leaving to a rushed job.
Here are a few tips for ironing clothes
- Remove wrinkles when ironing clothes by spraying them with five parts water to one part fabric softener.
- Tip: The secret to less ironing is to hang clothes properly. Give your clothes a good shake and straighten up sleeves and legs before drying.
- When ironing delicate items such as lace lay a damp handkerchief over the item first to protect it.
- Linens and cotton are much easier to iron when a little damp, so spray them lightly with water.
Always check the label on clothing before ironing. Some clothes may require dry cleaning only.
