4. Turn the fabric over and iron the right side.
This will ensure that the right side is immaculate and any creases you accidentally create are ironed to the back, where it matters less. However, ironing both sides is optimal. If you used the aluminum foil as outlined earlier, you may not need to iron the other side. Check out the type of fabric you’re using to see whether you need to iron the other side Cotton and silky rayon shouldn’t be ironed on the wrong side at all. Polyester can be ironed on either or both sides; if in doubt, iron the wrong side and stop there. For delicate fabrics or those with vibrant colors you’d like to preserve, try to get all the wrinkles out by ironing the wrong side (ironing on the right side can give dark colors an unwanted sheen).
