Any tips on how to keep these nice? DD is in uniform for the first time and the tops are white logoed ones. They seem really hard to iron, especially the collars! She's going to look really scruffy. Am I missing something?

Iron???? Hahaha. They don't need ironing do they??

These do! They come out of the dryer in a crumpled mess. What do other people do then? I have polos for work and don't iron mine. They're much softer and I just hang them up.

I use a scoop of oxy in them and then iron them. Put the collars u, so theyre flat to the board and iron them straight up, then fold them down and run the iron over the crease.

DD always looks smart, bright and well turned out.

Now If only I could be bothered to iron my own clothes.

Polo shirts generally don't need ironing, just a shake and hang them up or take them out of the dryer immediately and lay flat. That said, I used to iron the collars of ours sometimes. Do it when they are slightly damp.

I hate ironing polo shirts, but if I didnt do them they would look awful.

Now dd1 has moved on to blouses and I hate ironing them even more.

Thanks. I don't feel quite so stupid now I know other people have to iron them too. I'll try getting them out of the dryer sooner too.

Give them a good shake out then put then on a coat hanger to dry, make sure the collar is straight etc. No ironing required

Wash them with a bio or non bio powder, not a liquid. And make sure you use proper cycles on 40 or 60 degrees, not quick wash. That will keep them looking their whitest.

Napisan! Same for everything white - sheets, shirts, t shirts etc.

Do people have the space to lay out clothes flat? Is my idea of laying out flat different!?
