84% OF PEOPLE WANT MORE CONTACT WITH FRIENDS. May we suggest ironing?
I work really hard you know… It's so easy to see what our friends are up to nowadays - just log in to social media! With our busy lives, it's so much easier to 'like' a post than it is to actually meet up or chat on the phone. But this isn't staying in touch is it?
With the busy lives and full schedules of today, staying in touch isn't as easy as it sounds. 84% of people want to invest more time in their friends. But how?
We suggest combining catching-up with ironing...
Save time while ironing by shaking the wet clothes well before you hang them up. This smooths the fibres, reduces creases and saves a lot of time when ironing.
Washing is easiest to smooth when it is still ever so slightly moist. Your washing already dry? Moisten with a spray bottle filled with tap water. Do you dry your laundry in the dryer? Opt for "Iron-dry" instead.
At the seam
To prevent pressure points of pegs on your shirt, try hanging your shirt at the seam. The pressure points are easier to iron out of the hem than out of the shoulders of a shirt.
I WANT MORE TIPS
First, iron the clothes that can tolerate high temperatures. You can keep the fabrics that do not require such high temperatures until the end. In doing so, you only have to turn the iron down once.
Good control method
Do you ever iron your kitchen towels? And all your friends think you're mad for doing it? Let them be, we're on your side! Ironing controls moths and bacteria. Iron away!
Problems with brown spots on your ironed shirt? This means that the steam holes are blocked. It is recommended that you clean the holes regularly to prevent this. You do this with a cloth that has been soaked in vinegar.
Bare careful of prints
Never put your iron directly on the print of a shirt (or vest, pants, blouse and so on). The print can sometimes end up on the iron instead of the clothing! Turn the shirt inside-out and use a towel or ironing cloth as a buffer.
Are you almost done ironing? Then unplug the power cord from the socket and iron the last shirt without power. The iron stays warm enough and just uses less electricity. As people always say: every bit helps.
