6 Steps: How To Iron a Shirt:
- Undo all the buttons, including any holding down the collar and fastening the cuffs. Check the material of your shirt – if it is cotton, use a high temperature iron with plenty of steam. For other materials, consult the guidelines on the label.
- Place the collar flat on the ironing board, so you are ironing the inside of the collar. Then fold down the collar and press on the outside of the collar.
- Next, the yoke(the part that goes across the shoulders) of the shirt. Fit this over the end of the ironing board, then carefully iron as far towards the middle as you can. Swap over the un-ironed side of the yoke is over the edge of the ironing board, and repeat the same firm pressing motion so the entire yoke it smooth.
- Now place one of the sleeves flat on the ironing board, making sure that the seam on the underside of the sleeve is straight. Iron in short ‘pushes’ across the sleeve, just coming short of the non-seam edge. When the entire sleeve is ironed, carefully iron in a crisp crease along the non-seam edge. Put the cuff flat on the ironing board and iron. Repeat for other sleeve.
- You can now put one of the fronts of the shirt over the endof the ironing board. Iron carefully, avoiding the buttons and using the tip of the iron – Braun's Precision Tip is ideal for this – iron right up to the buttons. Repeat on the other side of the shirt front, and the back of the garment.
- Hang up, ensuring the shirt shoulders are ‘square’ on the hanger.
3 Steps: How To Iron Anything With a Lace Trim:
- Check the temperature of the main garment. If it requires anything other than a very cool iron, then iron the main body of the garment last.
- Lay the lace trim flat on an ironing boardand make sure your iron is on a very low setting. You’ll need an iron that provides steam even on the coolest setting, like the Braun TexStyle.
- Iron the less delicate fabric last, again making sure to follow the recommendations on the garment label.
Our tip: Give your lace additional protection by clicking the unique soft textile protector on the soleplate. It replaces the towel that people formerly used to protect delicate fabrics.
