How to iron a shirt


Learn how to iron your shirt, and iron it well. Because getting the basics needs to be
nailed now. Watch the vid to learn all the tips on getting a notably crease-free shirt.

Step 1 - the preparation


Switch your iron to the ‘Cotton’ setting. Iron your shirt (if possible!) when it’s slightly damp – the water spray/steam on the iron will suffice.

Step 2 - collar & cuffs


Next, iron the collar and cuffs of your shirt. To avoid the shirt curling at the edges, start from the edge and work in.

Step 3 - the yoke


Next, place the Yoke of the shirt (the part which covers the back of the shoulders) over the end of the ironing board and work outwards in. Use lots of steam to remove creases from the back of the shirt.

Step 4 - buttons and sleeves


Turn your shirt over and move your iron across the Placket (the strip which contains the buttons and button holes). Press the tip of the iron in the gaps between each button. To finish, iron the sleeves using fluid movements to remove any creases.
