After your garment is washed, you'll want to know how to iron a shirt step by step. Follow the three simple tips below. These tips can be used for adults, kids and even baby dress shirts.
Prep: Check for grime on the bottom of the iron and clear the ironing board of debris.
Start wet: Cotton and linen items that require pressing should be removed from the dryer while still damp. If the items are dry, it helps to spray the area damp before shirt pressing.
Heat: Adjust the iron temperature to match the fabric indicated on the tag. For an oxford cloth shirt, use "cotton/linen." For synthetics, test a small area to ensure it's safe to iron.
Never iron wool, velvet, or corduroy as ironing will crush or flatten the natural pile.
Starch: Never starch silk, silk-like fabrics, delicate synthetics, wool, cashmere, and wool-like fabrics.
