Method in ironing articles

2) clean the iron. Heat it and test to make sure that it is not too hot for the clothes to be ironed.
3) iron double parts and gems on the wrong side.
4) iron small parts such as collars, pockets, cuff, etc.
5) to iron the rest of the article, start from the part farthest from you. Roll away the part that has been ironed.
6) iron the article until it is completely dry.
7) air thoroughly and store properly.
