Supercharge Your Iron


Even with all these wrinkle-free clothes available, you still have to drag out the iron once in awhile to keep your outfits smooth. Here are a few tips to make your ironing easier…

Place one sheet of aluminum foil—shiny side up—between the ironing board and the fabric ironing board cover. The foil will reflect the heat from the iron, so your ironing will get done faster and better. Or lightly spray your clothing with warm water (rather than cold)—this will help the iron’s heat penetrate the clothes quicker and work out those problem wrinkles.
