First Things First

Dirt and debris can become permanent with the application of heat, so it's important to make sure everything is clean before you begin.

● Make sure all items you're using are clean, including clothing, iron board, and iron.

● Check the iron for dirt marks and wipe them off.

● Make sure the iron board has a clean cover.

Multi-Tasking: Leave It Up To The Dryer

Looking for a quick and easy way to get those wrinkles out of your clothes without having to lug out the ironing board and iron? Try using your dryer! All you have to do is spritz your item with some water, toss it in the dryer, and leave it for a few minutes.

The heat will create enough steam to loosen the wrinkles. Ensure that you're folding or hanging them up right away. This ironing hack is fantastic for when you're in a hurry or if you're trying to multitask.

Use Fabric Softener When Washing Laundry

The benefits of fabric softener extend beyond its trademark ability to make garments feel and smell better. It also lessens the number of creases that become permanent on garments when being washed, which takes some of the pressure of the ironing process.

Invest In A High-quality Iron

It's important to make sure you are using the right iron for the fabrics in your wardrobe. Using the wrong one can be damaging and time-consuming. The best all-around option is a steam-generating iron. Investing in a high-quality iron is key if you're looking to get through your ironing pile quickly and efficiently.

Higher-quality irons have more powerful steam capabilities so that they can tackle larger loads faster. You'll be amazed at how much time you can save with a quality steam-generating iron. If a steam-generating iron isn't in your budget, look for irons with ceramic heating elements. They still heat up quickly, with excellent capability for even heat distribution.

Use Your Ironing Board Correctly

Make sure your ironing board is set up correctly. The entire surface length should be utilised to ensure that the whole piece of clothing is covered when ironing. Use the pointed end of the ironing board to tackle stubborn wrinkles and creases. This will help you get into tricky corners, sleeves, hoodies and even pockets.

A sleeve board is a helpful extension that extends your ironing board surface area for easier ironing sleeves and longer garments.

Take Care With Delicate And Detailed Items

Ironing can be tricky, especially when it comes to delicate items. To make the process a bit easier and to preserve delicate logos and designs, turn clothing inside out before ironing.

Doing so will ensure that the motifs won't be affected by the high temperatures.

Consider washing and drying clothes inside out as well. This will help prevent fading from the sunlight when drying clothes on the line.

Streamline Your Routine

Streamlining your ironing routine can make it a much more efficient task. To make your ironing routine as easy as possible, start by sorting your clothing according to fabric type. Begin with lower temperatures for the most delicate items, like silk and polyester.

When using hotter temperatures, you'll move onto sturdier fabrics like cotton or linen. This way, you don't have to readjust the temperature for different fabrics. It also saves time and ensures the longevity of your iron and its internal components.

The Most Trusted Way To Have Your Ironing Done Correctly

If you're looking for an easier way to get your clothes pressed and looking fresh, consider a laundromat or dry cleaner. Many laundromats and dry cleaners offer professional ironing services, using modern steam irons to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
