Tips on making the most of ironing services
Category: Washing and Ironing
The Australian Business Traveller has offered a series of tips to corporate jetsetters so they can benefit from their nicely ironed outfits once they reach their destination.
It suggested that many people have tried and failed to find suitable ways to pack items of clothing without developing annoying creases.
One of the key things to consider is knowing when to roll garments and when to fold them.
"Rolling certain types of clothes rather than folding them helps to save space in your luggage - and also helps to avoid wrinkles and creasing," the publication noted.
Things that do not require the attention of firms employed to provide ironing services, such as socks, ties and underwear should be wrapped up.
However, suits, shirts and trousers must be folded carefully and a rolled-up t-shirt should be placed at the point of folding to prevent harsh creases from occurring.
For those who like to do their own ironing, Consumerreports.org has advised investing in a Rowenta Pro Master DW8080 iron due to its "excellent steaming rate".
