If you want to avoid marks from your iron, we recommend that you always iron your clothes inside out. It is then very important to choose the temperature according to the material to be ironed. For silk and polyester, use the first temperatures offered by your iron. When it comes to cotton and linen, you can use the warmer temperatures to iron more easily without taking any risks. If in doubt about the temperature to use, refer to the instructions on the care label.
Depending on the type of part and material, different types of drying are recommended.
In general, if the drying is done properly, it will not necessarily be necessary to iron your clothes.
A pattemouille refers to a damp cotton cloth that you will put between the item to be ironed and your iron. This prevents your hot iron from coming into contact with the fibers of your garment. For some of them, like wool, the iron in direct contact will have the effect of polishing the material, making it shine and therefore damaging it in the long term.
As mentioned above, ironing your sweaters is not necessary if you have air dried them flat. If you nevertheless iron your sweater, take all the necessary precautions:
-Very gentle ironing on the reverse
– Do not press or crush the mesh
– Use a pattemouille
Your shirt will sometimes give you a hard time when ironing. Some tips to make your job easier:
1. Lightly dampen your shirt with a spray and water (preferably demineralized) in order to iron your shirt more easily.
2. Unbutton your shirt to position it flat.
3. Start with the stiffer parts that won’t wrinkle like the collar and cuffs.
4. The collar must be ironed unfolded on each side, insisting on the points if necessary. You can then fold it back and iron the fold if you wish.
5. Once unbuttoned and unfolded, iron the cuffs from the inside (with the buttons) to the outside.
6. For the sleeves, iron them from the cuffs to the collar. Use the narrow end of your board to adjust your sleeve so that the seams line up with the edge of the board.
7. Finally, to iron the front and back of your shirt, use the end of your board again to avoid creases.
PS: Be sure to go around the buttons of your shirt so as not to damage them.
