I've been ironing my cotton shirts on max (the iron setting) with steam as
it works better but now I think I might be shortening the life of the shirt?
some are getting a bit ratty.
does anyone have any tips on this?
I agree with this but have one word of warning. If you are ironing a crease
into the collar and cuffs you will shorten the life of your shirts. Collars
and cuffs are meant to be rolled not ironed in and as they are stiffened
become brittle and break when ironed into a crease, over time. This often
causes them to fray and look old - when they needn't be.
Take a look at www.DrClean.co.uk/surgery_ironing/ironing_homepage.asp and
click through to the shirt ironing page, it will give you hints and a
step-by-step pictorial example.
Hope this helps
