Ironing Tips for Wrinkle-Free Outfits
There are few things more frustrating than putting on the perfect outfit only to find that is wrinkled and full of unsightly – and unwanted – creases. The main way to prevent this from happening is to iron clothes consistently, especially after they have been tucked away in a drawer for several days or weeks. However, ironing isn’t always as easy as it seems. For example, some people find that their clothes are more wrinkled or even damaged after ironing.
Thankfully, there are a few simple tips that can make ironing shirts, pants, and everything in between, an easy and worthwhile task:
- Iron clothes in the bedroom immediately after they have been washed, so they can be placed on hangers and hung in the closet to ensure a crisp look the next time they are needed
- Place aluminum foil on the ironing board, as it reflects heat and helps speed up ironing time by heating both sides of the garment
- Prevent additional wrinkles by only ironing one area of the garment at a time, making sure not to go over the same area twice and risking a crease
- Use spray starch when available as it promotes smooth ironing and helps reduce creases
It is also important to have the right equipment when ironing, including a sturdy ironing board with a cover, as well as an iron with multiple settings for various fabric styles.
Using these ironing tips can help anyone look their best when going out for a date, meeting with a potential client, or simply going out to dinner for the evening.
