Why is it easier to iron damp clothes?

December 17, 2018

Who needs a dryer or to wait an eternity for clothes to air dry on their own? It’s time to say good-bye to drying because ironing your clothes while damp is actually easier. Want to know how? Keep reading!

When clothes are damp, creases are easier to iron

Think about it. When clothes are left to dry completely, you need to spray them with some water to dampen them before you start the ironing process. That said, it makes perfect sense that ironing clothes while damp makes it easier to remove creases.

The process is a lot quicker

Traditionally, you’re used to wash your clothes, hang them to dry and then iron them with a dry iron or steam iron like Smart Protect. Practically, ironing your damp clothes that just came out of the washing machine saves you a lot of time and effort.

Beware: Do you think you can dry all your clothes with an iron? Not quite. Before you think about ironing just any garment while damp, you should consider the type of fabric you are dealing with. Delicate fabrics such as silk for example should be as dry as possible when it’s time to iron them. Jeans and other similar fabrics are much more resistant and can be hanged for a while and ironed while damp.

Important Notice

If you have a very large pile of clothes and do not wish to proceed with the ironing process, it’s better to place the remaining damp garments in the dryer or hang them to air dry naturally. Otherwise, you will end up with musty fabrics and your clothes would be ruined.
