How to reduce ironing? – There are some things that never need ironing. They include: anything that says ‘do not iron’ on the care label; towels, face flannels and tea towels; underwear (unless you go in for silk camisoles and suchlike), socks and nappies; fleeces; most lycra-based sportswear, swimsuits, bikinis; velvet, chenille, seersucker, and special crinkle-effect fabrics; fitted sheets (even cotton ones will smooth out magically as soon as you put them on the bed).
Drying laundry correctly is a good way to minimize ironing. If you hang clothes outside on a warm, dry, breezy day, the wind will billow out the fabric and remove wrinkles. When drying flat, pull the garment gently into shape before drying.
The iron’s plate should be regularly checked to ensure there are no mineral deposits on it which can cause brown marks during ironing. The steam holes should be cleaned only when the iron cold. Scrub the holes with pipe cleaners soaked in soapy water. Next, eliminate the soapy water by turning on the iron and steam it out. For a dirty plate, gently rub the plate with a mild scrub cream cleaner.
Make sure to use only distilled water for your steam iron. Use a heat reflective cover for the ironing board for quicker and easier ironing. The temperature of the iron should be set according to the general laundering symbols found on the tags.
