Tips and tricks when ironing
One thing is for sure: With irons from Siemens, you are perfectly equipped for effective yet gentle ironing. The following tips and tricks show you how to make the most of this advantage:
Start with the fiddly bits
Ironing jeans properly
Avoid pressure points
Iron fabric likely to be marked inside out.
Avoid water marks
Silk fabrics and materials in dark colours can be prone to water marks if sprayed with water before ironing. Preferably use an extremePower edition iron with XTRM deep steam.
Allow your ironing to cool down slightly before folding together
The right working height
The ironing board cover
The ironing board cover is extremely important. It cushions the metal lattice of the ironing board, allowing you to easily iron button plackets on the wrong side, for example. However, the padding must be elastic and breathable: after all, good penetration of the fabric with steam is crucial for a perfect ironing result. You should replace the cover after two years at the latest. Many ironing board covers are also washable. They then release a pleasant, fresh scent during ironing.
