5 Common Ironing Mistakes And How To Avoid Them.
Everybody makes mistakes, especially with ironing. And it doesn’t matter if you have been ironing all your life or you are just a beginner, here are some common errors to avoid:
- Storing Your Iron With Water In It: Not ridding your iron’s tank of leftover water after use can cause the excess water to damage the internal parts of the iron and even sip out, discoloring it.
- Ironing Light Materials Last: Seeing as it takes quite some time for irons to heat up, you should work your way up from materials like chiffon and silk to cotton. Ironing really light fabrics when the iron is very hot can cause your fabric to melt.
- Turning Up The Heat: When you iron apparels made of a blend of fabrics, you might be tempted to crank up the heat to suit the tougher fabric, but you shouldn’t. Select the setting for the more delicate one and let the heat slowly come.
- Ironing Fabrics That Are Too Dry: You should always dampen dry fabrics before you iron them to make creases and wrinkles disappear easily. Anything else would make your ironing tedious.
- Not Cleaning Your Iron: Having melted fabrics residue or sticky spray starch on your iron can cause it to snag and stain your other clothes. You can clean your iron with toothpaste with fluoride in it, baking powder paste or any other solution you know
