Those who know iron out the creases

Life & Style Weekend - - HOME -

IT TURNS out we’ve been do­ing our iron­ing wrong this whole time.

To get stub­born creases out of your clothes, the ex­perts at Good House­keep­ing say you need to grab a roll of tin foil, re­ports The Sun.

Place the alu­minium foil un­der­neath your iron­ing board cover, shiny-side up.

They say: “Foil re­flects heat, so it will im­prove your crease-re­moval speed on hard-to-iron gar­ments.”

But this isn’t the only need-to-know laun­dry hack to help make your chores a dod­dle.

Ac­cord­ing to Life­hacker, throw­ing a cou­ple of ice cubes into your tum­ble dryer with your dry, wrin­kled clothes will help re­move the creases.

They rec­om­mend run­ning the ma­chine on its hottest set­ting for a cou­ple of min­utes be­fore tak­ing the gar­ments out and shak­ing them.

The trick has a sim­i­lar ef­fect to us­ing the steam set­ting on your iron. The ex­perts rec­om­mend not over­fill­ing the dryer and try­ing it out on thin­ner ma­te­ri­als, such as blouses or shirts.

You don’t want your clothes to come out wet so make sure you don’t go over­board with the ice cubes.
