I mean wow, what a bore but I can’t iron. I just can’t do it. I don’t know whether it’s bexause I have ridiculous clothes with rifles and goodness knows what else, or that I don’t iron them straight after the wash, but the creases remain.
Any tips on ironing?! I don’t have a budget to get someone else to do it....
My three great tips on ironing are: 1. Dont iron. 2. Dont buy clothes that need ironing. 3. Dont accept invites to places that require the "posh" clothes at the back if the wardrobe that need pressing to look posh.
Get a good ironing board cover, one that fits properly and doesn't ruckle up. Hang shirts, trousers etc straight from the dryer/line - don't screw them up into a basket. Always use steam. What type of clothes are you struggling with?
There is a method to ironing. You need a decent iron, an ironing board with a well fitting cover. They need not be expensive. Useful extras are decent music or good tv programme and a large drink. A damp muslin square can be useful too,
Ruffles, lots of panels, lycra in shirts and so on are a PITA. Avoid unless you love the garment.
Yes to the spray in a bottle (unless you like descaling irons) and iron as soon as clothes are dry. Iron shirts in the same order. I do reverse collar, collar, yoke, front right, back, front left, left cuff & sleeve, right cuff & sleeve. Hang immediately. Use the correct heat for the fabric and iron special finishes inside out.
