How to get a perfectly ironed shirt in 5 minutes
Ironing is the process by which a fabric acquires a smooth surface by pressing it with a heated plane (iron sole).
Modern irons are usually electric and have a large number of functions. When using the function of moistening with heated steam, small folds of fabric soften and more likely to be smoothed, and when using a special liquid for ironing, the steam becomes more efficient and, moreover, gives the linen a delicate aroma and softness. Some irons are equipped with a “vertical steam” function that allows you to iron in an upright position.
No matter what they say about the return of fashion to the folds, we do not believe in it. And so we give you tips on mastering the iron, which will allow you to get a perfectly ironed shirt in 5 minutes.
Ironing symbols on textile labels
Textile labels contain symbols regulating the rules of their processing. Ironing is a sign in the form of iron.
|Ironing at the temperature of the sole of the iron up 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 sole of the iron up to 150 ° C - corresponds to the symbol in the form of two points on the thermostat of the iron|
|Ironing at the temperature of the soleplate up to 110 ° C - corresponds to the symbol in the form of a single point on the thermostat of the iron. Steam ironing can cause irreversible damage to the material being processed.|
|Ironing is prohibited.|
Coquette (the part on the shoulders)
Put the right side of the coquette on the corner of the board, stretch the fabric with your free hand and the surface, strongly pressing the iron. Repeat the entire operation for the left side.2
Turn it around and put it face down on the board. Turn it over when you finish ironing so that the shirt does not inflate like a sail during the process.3
Insert the end of the board into the shirt’s shoulder, stretch the fabric with your free hand and smooth surface, strongly pressing the iron. Smooth surface between (and not on top of) buttons (advice from Captain Obvious).
Overhang the right front of the board and warm your back, gradually moving the fabric. Imagine you rotate your shirt like a grilled chicken.five
Again, put the end of the board in the shoulder. To iron the double layer of fabric with the buttonholes, first treat it with steam, then stretch it with your free hand and the surface, pressing the back of the iron more than the front to avoid “assembling” the fabric.6
Put one sleeve on the board, straighten it, especially in the shoulder area. Run your hand over it to make sure everything is level, and then iron it. Turn and repeat the whole process. With cuffs do the same as with a collar: cool the inside. If you have smoothed the crease (nothing happens to everyone), splash water over this place and re-heat it.
