Ironing a coat at home can be a bit intimidating, but don’t worry! With a little bit of patience and the right tools, you’ll have your coat looking crisp and wrinkle-free in no time. Here’s a quick guide on how to do it:
First things first, gather your tools! You’ll need:
- an iron,
- ironing board,
- spray bottle
- coat hanger.
Once you have everything you need, lay your coat out on the ironing board and make sure it’s buttoned up and the sleeves are spread out evenly.
If there are any wrinkles, give them a quick mist with the spray bottle.
Now, set your iron to the wool setting (or check the care label for the recommended temperature) and let’s get started!
Begin by ironing the collar, using one hand to hold the iron and the other to smooth out the fabric. Remember to use a light touch and not press down too hard.
Next, move on to the sleeves. Starting at the shoulder, work your way down to the cuff and iron them evenly. Once you’ve finished with the sleeves, move on to the rest of the coat, starting at the top and working your way down.
When ironing your coat, pay special attention to the areas that are most prone to wrinkles, like the cuffs and the pockets.
And don’t forget to look out for any buttons or embellishments on your coat, these may need to be ironed on a low heat or with a cloth in between the iron and the embellishment to prevent them from melting or getting damaged.
Once you’ve finished with the sleeves, move on to the rest of the coat, starting at the top and working your way down.
Finally, hang your coat on a coat hanger. This will help it keep its shape and prevent any wrinkles from forming.
And that’s it! With these easy steps, you’ll be able to iron your coat like a pro. Just remember to always check the care label and take your time. Happy ironing!
