TIPS FOR IRONING

5.
Sort out the articles to be ironed according to the type of fabric. This will minimize the
frequency of temperature adjustment for different garments.
Test ironing a small area on the backside or inside the garment if you are unsure
about the type of fabric. Start with a low temperature and increase gradually.
Wait for about three minutes before ironing heat sensitive fabrics. Temperature
adjustment needs certain time to reach the required level no matter it is higher or
lower.
Delicate fabrics such as silk, wool, velour, etc. are best ironed with an ironing cloth
to prevent shine marks.
You may need a few times of press to activate the spray, burst and vertically burst
function.
