Ironing Boards and Irons:
You need at least two pieces of equipment to perfectly iron your cloth and they are: an iron and an ironing board. Investing in superior quality of both ironing accessories is highly recommended as they are used quite frequently and if maintained properly can last you a decade! Cordless irons are a big hit these days followed by ironing boards with adjustable heights.
You need to spray the piece of fabric that you are ironing with an ironing spray before you press it as it helps in smoothing out the wrinkles. But for delicate fabrics such as silk and cotton, you ought to be more careful as cheap quality sprays might ruin the cloth itself. So, purchase a high-quality and fragrant ironing spray to enhance your cloth ironing experience and add to the appearance of the ironed cloth.
If there is not enough space in your crib for an ironing board or if you are not able to afford it, an ironing mat is another feasible option for you. It acts just like an ironing board but needs to be laid on a flat surface. These ironing mats are made of high-quality material that can sustain high temperatures.
