TIPS TO REDUCE THE CREASES
Our Cheat Sheet to Avoid Ironing
HANG YOUR CLOTHES ON COAT HANGERS TO DRY
The Coat Hanger Method
Most clothes air well using this method and we use it frequently for our organising clients. Instead of double handling clothes use coat hangers straight from the washing machine and onto your line. Let the wind do the work.
AVOID THE DRYER
Never overfill the dryer
Even if you are sending your shirts to be ironed, avoid putting them in the dryer as they will get super wrinkled and take much longer to iron. Less wrinkles means less ironing.
EMBRACE THE CREASE IN BED
Light creasing is okay and even cool
Fabrics such as linen and cotton, depending on the design are fine to be left as they are. To get that look you will need to air dry the bedding or put in the dryer with plenty of space for airing.
SHAKE YOUR LAUNDRY
A flick to save time
Flick your clothes before hanging out, even if its on a coat hanger. It is much quicker than ironing.
CHOOSE YOUR FABRIC WISELY
Before buying think of the ironing
That dress looks really pretty in the shop but it's cotton. While cotton dresses are great they require ironing before they are worn. Some things such as cotton shirts, dresses, trousers and blouses definitely need an iron after washing. Polyester dries quicker and seldom needs attention other than putting on a coat hanger to dry. Linen is an exception to the rule provided that the article has a relaxed look to it. Sometimes a flick and coat hanger hanging will do BUT fitted linen clothing always needs ironing. Heavy cotton sheets generally need ironing, especially if you are looking to get that 'hotel' look.
