Follow these simple steps to dry cloth with iron depending on the type of fabric whether you are dealing with cotton, jeans or delicate fabrics such as silk and satin
You might have noticed that completely dried clothes are very difficult to iron and need to be damped every once in a while to ease the process and get rid of creases. But can you actually iron your clothes directly after you wash them or while they’re still damp?
Ironing clothes while they’re still damp means that the water is literally boiling inside your fabric and evaporating as you slide your iron. Now you can practice this routine depending on the type of fabric you’re dealing with.
You should wash silk and satin fabrics manually and get rid of water as much as possible before you start ironing. Because these types of fabrics are delicate, you can use a steam iron like Aquaspeed Precision which can easily smooth creases while releasing steam and easing the sliding process. When it comes to cotton, jeans and linen fabrics, you may remove them from the washing machine, hang them for a while and iron them before they are completely dry.
This really eases the ironing process and you will get rid of creases faster than usual especially when you’re in a hurry and not planning to wear anything else. But you must be very careful when it comes to the fabric type and make sure you use the correct setting on your iron before you start!
