With the holidays in sight, we will also cover those things that you have never really understood. Such as ironing a shirt. Sigh. It is always a real chore to be able to hang them fresh and wrinkle-free in the cupboard, but it still has to happen. Then you'd better get some tips so you can get through it as quickly as possible with excellent results.

Steam, steam and more steam

You can only get all the creases out of it shirt get through steam. That does not mean that you have to invest in a professional steam ironing device. Of course you can, it certainly makes your life a lot easier. But with an old-fashioned plant sprayer you also get a long way. By spraying the shirt with water and making it moist, you create steam under the heat of the iron. No matter how cheap it may be. As long as it can get warm.

The collar and cuffs

Always iron the collar from the outside to the inside. This means that you stroke from the edge to the inside of the collar. Because it always runs around the neck, the outside has a little more fabric than the inside. If you iron from the inside to the outside, you will get extra fabric accumulating and making a fold. Exactly in front of the collar also. Full in the picture. You don't want that.

Then iron the back of the shirt

The easiest part. No knots or that kind of misery that gets in the way.

The front piece

This is the most important part because this is the part that people see all day long. If you are wearing a jacket you can sometimes get away with the back and sleeves not, but the front should always be smoothed smooth.

Then put the sleeves

Lay the sleeves as flat as possible on the shelf. The seam at the bottom of the sleeve is leading there. And yes, you can just have a fold at the top of the sleeve.
