Growing up, you might have noticed that your mother always used a clean cloth for ironing. But did you ever wonder why you too should use one on your garments before you press them?
Some delicate fabrics such as wool or acrylic need special care when it comes to ironing. Use a cotton cloth such as a clean and unused pillow case before you iron these types of fabric with a steam iron such as Easygliss. Make sure the cloth is inside out and not damp if you’re ironing Acrylic. For hard materials such as jeans, dampen the cloth a little for an easier glide and perfect results.
Synthetic fabrics such as nylon melt when they are subjected to direct high heat. A clean cloth works like a barrier and helps protecting the surface from melting. It’s the perfect way to keep you from ruining your favorite garments!
If you own an expensive silk shirt you sure don’t want to end up with it burnt and ruined. To avoid the shiny iron mark on your favorite garment, add a cotton cloth between it and your steam iron. This step can literally save the day!
