How to iron your shirt when you travel on business

12 October 2015


It’s a sad fact that a lot of people just don’t know how to iron properly. This is why some business people, when travelling, create a bad impression with their creased shirt. ironing-403074_640First, you need a quality iron. A steam iron is preferable, as hot steam can smooth the toughest wrinkles. You can buy a travel iron, and if you’re staying in a Hallmark Hotel, many of our rooms include a trouser press to ensure you needn’t turn up to that meeting the next day in a pair that look like they’ve been stuffed into a suitcase. If you don’t have access to an ironing board, use a towel laid on a flat hard surface, such as a desk. 575px-Laundry_symbols_on_a_care_label_attached_to_a_shirtRead the label of the shirt as a guide to how hot the iron needs to be. Most cotton shirts can be ironed at a high heat, but delicate fabrics such as silk often need you to exercise a bit more caution. Iron the collar fist. Unfold the collar and iron the underside, slowly moving the iron from side to side. Repeat on the outside of the collar. Next, iron the cuffs. Lay them out flat and carefully smooth out all the wrinkles. For the front, start with the button side and carefully work the iron around the buttons. After this, iron from the shoulder down the rest of the front. Then iron the back of the shirt before finishing on the sleeves. After you have mastered the skill of ironing a shirt, you should be able to finish the job in less than five minutes.  
Now that your shirt is crease free and your shoes are shined, now to make sure you are wearing the correct dress code for a meeting
