To make ironing less annoying, have an area in the house designated as an ironing area.
Not so many people like to iron their clothes. Some will find ironing calming and comforting while others see it as an unpleasant task that needs to be done only when necessary, just before an important meeting or celebration. This is why many people go for wrinkle resistant clothing, simply walk wearing creased clothes or occasionally hire someone for a professional ironing service in Canberra. However, there are some situations which require regular ironing. If you have a baby, ironing is an additional step in protecting your baby’s sensitive skin. So, you cannot avoid it. Here are some tips which can help you, perhaps not to start enjoying it more, but at least to make it more tolerable.
One of the first things is to get the right equipment. An old iron that you got from your grandma is a dear memory, but is it functional enough? You do not need to have the latest and most expensive one on the market, but a functional iron will make the process much easier and, more importantly, faster. Also, make sure you have a solid ironing board. The board with the broken legs can just make it more difficult and frustrating for you.
Always have a spray bottle ready as it can make your ironing much simpler. We recommend you to use distilled water for both the iron and the spray bottle as the chemicals from tap water can stain your clothes and also damage the iron.
To make ironing less annoying, have an area in the house designated as an ironing area. Knowing that everything is in one place will make it easier for you to start the daunting chore. You do not have to spend at least half an hour rearranging the house before you even start. A spot in the laundry room or basement next to your TV set can be just perfect.
Make sure you read the label for each item that needs to be ironed as you do not want to ruin both clothes and the iron. Always iron delicate things first that require a lower setting and then carry on with things that need higher settings. It is easier to use a warming up iron than to wait for the iron to cool down.
Slightly wet clothes are easier to iron, so either start ironing before your clothes is completely dry or use a spray bottle or steam iron to damp it before ironing.
Make sure you have clothes racks and hangers ready as you should properly hang the items as soon as you are done with ironing it. You do not want to ruin all that hard work.
In case you do not have enough time, have back pain or simply find ironing too boring, there are many companies that offer an ironing service in Canberra at affordable prices. You will see that perfectly ironed clothes can make the real difference in how you feel and look.
