HOW TO IRON A SHIRT
- Step 1: The Collar
Start with the underside of the collar. Iron from the center out to avoid creasing. Flip and repeat on the other side.
- Step 2: The Yoke and Shoulders
Hook one shoulder over the round tip of the ironing board. Start at the yoke (where the collar meets the arm) and move to the center of the back. Repeat with the other shoulder.
- Step 3: Cuffs and Sleeves
Lay one sleeve flat with the buttons or cuff link holes facing up. Flip and iron the outside of the cuff. Then iron the sleeve, starting on the button side. Repeat with the other sleeve.
- Step 4: The Body
Iron the front panels first. Flip and iron the back panel. Be careful to iron between the buttons and not over them, which can cause the buttons to break. Touch up the collar when you're done.
HOW TO IRON PANTS
- Step 1: Pockets
Turn the pants inside out and iron the pockets.
- Step 2: Waist Area
Turn the pants right-side out. Hook the waistband over the round tip of the ironing board. (If the pant material is different from the pocket material, adjust the temperature setting). Rotate pants around the board as you iron. Iron gently over the pocket areas to avoid creases.
- Step 3: Legs
Place one leg atop the other. Align the seams. Fold back the top leg. Iron the inside of the leg from bottom to crotch. Close. Flip and iron the outside of the leg. For pants without creases, iron near the leg's edges, but not over them.
- Step 4: Crease
To create a crease along the front of the pant leg, hold the iron a few inches from the leg and direct a burst of steam toward its edge. Then iron, using a spray of cool mist if necessary.
Large items should be ironed at the wide end of the ironing board. To help keep the item clean, lay a plastic tablecloth or old sheet on the floor beneath the board.
To get the best results when ironing a French cuff or shoulder area of a jacket or blouse, use a sleeve board. If you don’t have a sleeve board, try rolling a towel up into the sleeve and iron directly onto the cuff.
To reduce shine caused by overpressing or wear, soak a press cloth in water, then wring it out. Place the damp press cloth on top of the shiny surface and press. Repeat several times until the area is almost dry. Using a soft brush, raise the nap of the fabric.
For razor sharp creases, iron in the crease then set it with a burst of steam.
Collars, cuffs, and hems often pucker when ironed. To avoid this, iron on the inside first, then go back and iron the outside. A burst of steam will provide a crisp finish.
When ironing over delicate buttons, cover them with the bowl of a spoon and press the surrounding fabric.
Gathers and ruffles should be ironed on the inside from the outer edge toward the gathers. If material is too difficult to maneuver on an ironing board, hang garment and use a vertical burst of steam.
Pleats should be ironed from the bottom, starting with the inside of the pleat, then moving to the outside of the pleat. If necessary, pin pleats to the ironing board at top and bottom; don’t iron over pins. To set pleats, use a burst of steam.
Seams should first be flattened smooth. Iron the inside length of the seam and then press the outside of the seam.
Soleplate buildup can be caused by a variety of things: starch, fabric softener, hard water mineral deposits, even dust. If your soleplate gets dirty, you can clean it quickly and easily with a wax-based iron cleaner, such as the cleaner in the Rowenta stainless steel soleplate cleaning kit. Put about an inch of the cleaner on a towel and move the hot iron across it. The buildup is transferred to the towel. If the soleplate is very dirty, you may need to repeat this step. when finished, buff the iron with an old cloth or towel to ensure that the iron is completely clean.
