How to get a perfectly smoothed shirt in 5 minutes
Ironing is a process in which the fabric acquires a smooth surface by pressing it with a heated flat (the sole of the iron).
Modern irons are usually electric and have a large number of functions. When using the moisturizing function with heated steam, the small creases of the fabric soften and are more amenable to smoothing, and when using a special liquid for ironing, the steam becomes even more effective and, in addition, gives the laundry a delicate aroma and softness. Some irons are equipped with a "vertical steaming" function, which allows ironing in an upright position.
Whatever they say about the return of fashion to the folds, we do not believe in it. And so we give you tips for mastering the iron, which will allow you to get a perfectly ironed shirt in 5 minutes.
Symbols of ironing on labels of textiles
On the labels of textiles are symbols that regulate the rules for their processing. For ironing, this is a sign in the form of an iron.
|Ironing at the temperature of the soleplate of the iron to 200 ° C - corresponds to the symbol in the form of three points on the thermostat of the iron|
|Ironing at the temperature of the soleplate of the iron to 150 ° C - corresponds to the symbol in the form of two points on the iron thermoregulator|
|Ironing at the temperature of the soleplate of the iron to 110 ° C - corresponds to the symbol in the form of a single point on the iron thermoregulator. Ironing with steam can cause irreversible damage to the processed material|
|Ironing is prohibited.|
Coquette (the part that is on the shoulders)
Put the right side of the coquette on the corner of the board, stretch the fabric with your free hand and smooth it, pressing the iron hard. Repeat the whole operation for the left side.2
Unfold it and put it face down on the board. Roll it when you finish ironing so that the shirt does not puff like a sail during the process.3
Insert the end of the board into the shoulder of the shirt, stretch the fabric with your free hand and smooth, pressing the iron hard. The smoothness between (and not over) the buttons (advice from Captain Obviousness).
Swipe the right front part from the board and blink your back, gradually moving the fabric. Imagine that you rotate your shirt like a chicken on a grill.5
Left front part
Put the end of the board back on the shoulder again. To iron a double layer of fabric with buttonholes, treat it first with steam, then pull it with your free hand and the surface, pressing more the back of the iron than the front one to avoid "assembling" the fabric.6th
Put one sleeve on the board, straighten it, especially in the shoulder area. Run on it with your hand to make sure that everything is smooth, and then iron it with an iron. Turn over and repeat the whole process. With cuffs, do the same as with a collar: iron the inside. If you ironed the crease (nothing, with all happens), sprinkle water on this place and iron it again.
