How Does Ironing with Steam Work?

Ironing with steam involves using hot steam to remove wrinkles from fabric. The steam relaxes the fibers and adds moisture, making it easier to smooth out the wrinkles. Unlike dry ironing, which can sometimes damage delicate fabrics, steam ironing is gentle and safe for most materials.

5 Tips on Ironing with Steam

1. Use distilled water: This helps prevent mineral buildup and ensures a steady flow of steam.

2. Set the Temperature: Check the garment's care label to ensure the garment will not get damaged. 

3. Go with the Grain: Move the iron in a downward motion, following the natural grain of the fabric. Going against the grain puts unnecessary tension on the fibers. 

4. More is Better: For stubborn wrinkles, hold the iron in place for a few seconds. Use the iron's pointed tip for collars, cuffs, and other hard-to-reach areas.

5. Consider Collar Help: Get a SnapCollar to keep the collar neat and pressed in between wears or as a fix without busting out the iron.
