Do you feel that your clothes are even more wrinkled after you have ironed them? To avoid this problem, sort your clothes according to the ironing temperature (from cold to hot). Start with the fabric that needs the lower temperature (silk and synthetic at about 350 ° F) to the one requiring a higher temperature (cotton and cloth at about 425 ° F).

A good tip is to iron your clothes in the room. Why? You can use the bed space to sort your linen.

 

Hang your clothes after ironing.

Ironing large fabrics like curtains or bed sheets is quite arduous. To make your ironing easier, follow these steps:

  • Install two chairs next to your iron.
  • Gently bend the ironed parts on the chairs as you work on the remaining fabric.
  • Another useful tip is to do your ironing on a tabletop. To ensure that your table is not damaged, cover it with towels.

The ironing cloth is a must when ironing delicate fabrics. It keeps the iron in direct contact with the fabric. This also helps you to avoid shiny points on your clothes. If you do not have one, you can always find something in your home that you can use as an ironing cloth (an old cloth, for example).

In case you need to use an extension cord to manage your ironing, be sure to use a 12 amp electrical wire. The lighter cables are not safe, they could easily overheat and even cause a fire. Arrange the cord so that it is easily visible.
