Tips on how to iron | Spray the entire surface before ironing
When ironing, wrinkles will be removed better when the item is slightly damp than when it is completely dry.
If your Y-shirt is dry, it's best to spray water all over it with a mist sprayer before ironing it.
It is OK to iron the clothes immediately after washing.
POINTSome irons are equipped with a steam function, but we recommend using a mist sprayer as this allows you to quickly and evenly moisten the entire surface.
