The basic rules of ironing shirts

“I wish there were such shirts that wouldn’t need to be ironed!” - such thoughts were visited by more than one generation of women, because the whole process of ironing, and, in particular, men's shirts, takes too much time and effort. In principle, such materials have long appeared in the world that need not be ironed at all, however, for some reason, the shirts of them never took root.

And the thing is that a well-washed and ironed shirt looks much better and presentable, and therefore, every woman still needs to know how to iron such an element of a man’s wardrobe.

A lot of articles have been written on how to iron a men's shirt, and even an impressive number of videos were shot, on which experienced housewives show how simple and easy it is to cope with this matter. In principle, in order to understand the nuances, it is useful to watch a couple of such videos, well, and we will share with you all the theoretical fundamentals.

The rules and sequence of actions in different video lessons may differ slightly, however, the essence is the same: you have to do everything consistently and then you will get a brilliant result at the output.

Where to start?

Many women are wondering - where to start? With sleeves, back or collar? And you need to start it with washing and proper drying. If the fabric is parched, then it will not work out exactly for you, it's easier to iron a slightly wet shirt, which, after washing, was dried on the shoulders. If it turned out that the fabric is still dry, then it needs to be moistened: spray the water evenly with a spray bottle, or just wrap it for a short time in a wet rag.

Next, you need to learn the labels on the label - there it is usually indicated in which temperature mode you need to make ironing, so as not to spoil the fabric. If there are no instructions on this matter was not found, then we can adhere to the following generally accepted rules:

  • For linen fabrics we set the temperature 210 ° -230 °, which corresponds to three circles on the temperature circle of the iron.
  • A mixture of cotton and linen - 180 ° -200 °, while adding steam and provide a strong pressure.
  • Pure cotton is usually polished in two-point mode, that is, 150 °, if necessary, you can add steam.
  • If the shirt consists of polyester or is completely out of it, you can try the weakest mode with one point (110 ° -120 °). At the same time, the fabric must be slightly damp - it will be easier to iron it.Similarly, come with shirts from viscose.
  • Gentle flowing silk shirts are generally better not to iron, it is enough to wash and dry them on hangers. If such a need still arises, then you need to choose the weakest mode and, if necessary, iron through thin gauze.
  • The fabric with the addition of wool should be properly ironed from the seamy side and through gauze, since there may be stains on the temperature on it, the ironing mode is two points.

Some housewives complain that ironing a man's shirt is unreal, there are still creases, or the fabric does not straighten. Most likely, you choose the wrong mode for a particular tissue, be careful.

Also remember that it is better to iron shirts made of dark fabrics from the wrong side, because from the action of hot temperatures they can often have lasas - ugly shiny stripes. If you still need to iron on the front side, then try to use more steam, and touch the product only slightly with an iron.

Ironing process

Men's shirts are different - with long sleeves or short, with buttons or cufflinks, however, the principle of action remains approximately the same.Perhaps the most difficult thing to iron shirts is with a long sleeve, although when you have already adjusted, it will not bother you anymore. So, install the ironing board, heat the iron and proceed to the process.

It is necessary to iron in a certain order, otherwise in the process of ironing you can already knead what has been ironed. Usually they start with a collar: first smooth the seamy side, paying special attention to the seam, and then the front one. Iron movements should be from the corners to the middle. To the collar took the correct form, it can be slightly bent and iron the fold.

Further sleeves. The main difficulty here is to iron them so that no wrinkles remain. First you need to iron the cuffs - from the inside and the front side, if there are buttons, then they need to be unbuttoned. Next, you need to use a special small nozzle - the sleeve is put directly on it and, gently scrolling, is ironed from all sides.

If the nozzle is not, then iron in a different way: fold the sleeve in half so that the seam is left on top, ironed, then turn over and iron on the other side. Now it needs to be folded on the seam and again ironed from the edge to the seam, the edge itself is not necessary to iron, because you do not need arrows on the sleeves. Repeat the same steps with the other sleeve.

The main part of the shirt remains: it must be started from the right shelf. Give her special attention, because she is always in sight. We put the shirt on a narrow part of the board, slightly at an angle, and we smooth out a part of the coquette, move and smooth the remaining part of the right shelf with buttons - they need to bend around carefully, and not iron over them.

By analogy, we stroke the left shelf - it's already easier there, there are no buttons. Spink smooth from the right seam to the left, while constantly turning the shirt to make it comfortable. The seams need to be ironed from top to bottom, the final chord in the whole process of ironing is the left seam, which is also ironed from top to bottom.

Particular attention should be paid to the undercuts - first you need to undo the wrinkles as much as possible, and then iron them a few centimeters from the top.

How to fold a shirt? Now that everything is ready, it is very important to properly fold the shirt so that it retains its shape and does not get new creases on the fabric. First, do not rush to fold it immediately after ironing - let the cloth cool for at least half an hour - for this, it is enough to place the shirt on the shoulders and fasten the top button.

For ease of folding inside, you can put a cardboard box, as is the case in industrial packaging. With a skillful approach, this process does not take you much time: especially for this, first read the photo and video instructions.
