大家有無試到上一篇幫大家熨衫變得更容易嘅方法呢?但係永遠都仲係有D衣物嘅類別係比較難熨同達到理想效果。有邊個唔鐘意一件完美骨直嘅恤衫或者裙!有見及此,我就分析同根據平時我地日常生活最易遇到必熨而又好難熨得好嘅衣物:恤衫,西褲同百褶裙為大家提供針對佢地嘅不同熨法。某類型布料可能需要特別嘅悉心處理,但一般來講大部份布料嘅處理方法都係大致相同。

 

恤衫
熨恤衫時,最好由衫袖開始。因為熨完之後,你就可以由衫袖係熨衫板嘅兩邊垂放。如果你先熨左其他部份,最後先熨衫袖的話,會令到恤衫其他已熨嘅地方起皺。記得熨衫袖前,將袖上面嘅鈕扣先打開,呢個係初熨衫者常犯嘅普通錯誤。打開鈕扣可以幫助你更加容易將成隻袖由上而下順暢地熨直。

西褲
大家衣櫃點都會有條番工必備又百搭嘅西褲。如果想達到熨完直一直嘅效果, 首先將前面嘅口袋向外反,之後就可以將熨斗係褲上面開始壓熨(先壓,然後輕力向同一個方向來回熨)。完成後就可以將熨斗先拎起,將抽出嘅口袋放回之後繼續係褲上面來回咁熨。時常記得係同壓熨嘅方式,而唔係將布料一直向前推而達到筆直嘅效果。

百褶裙
無論係羊毛或者係相對比較軟身布料,一個正確嘅熨法絕對係將百褶裙保持到同當初買番屋企一樣嘅重要步驟! 由裙嘅頂部開始,輕力順住每一個褶嘅開端先壓一下,再往下熨。每壓完後按一下蒸氣,再向下熨。 記得唔好用拉嘅方法,將熨斗用力由開端大力咁拉到底端,原因係拉嘅動作會將布料中嘅纖維撐大或者會無意地熨出不必要嘅皺紋。

非布料,可免則免
當一啲係衣物上非布料嘅裝飾物例如鈕扣(熨斗嘅熱度同力度會變得易爛),絲印(可能會溶或者係衫上面化開),珠片(易溶)都唔知道熨衫時應該點樣處理. 其實只要用熨斗前方嘅尖端係有鈕扣或者其他裝飾物嘅範圍輕輕幾按就可以解決到。如果你嘅T恤大部份範圍都有印上去嘅圖案或者珠片等飾物,你可以將整件衫反轉,又或者係衫上面舖一塊薄薄嘅毛巾然後先開始熨。

熨完衫後,記得立即將佢地掛好!咁就可以係你下次著之前,都可以令到衣物保持順直。係坐底之前可以先用手輕輕將裙拉直先坐,或者係坐低後先將恤衫拉直先往後靠前, 咁樣就算著左成日都唔怕咁易起皺啦! Happy Ironing!

Have you try out one of those ironing tips & tricks from the previous blog? Even though you might already have improved your ironing skills and save some time from it, there are always some tricky garments which is hard to iron just like the way you want it. Who doesn’t like the straight, perfect ironed shirt or skirts that make you shine? We have break it down to 3 most common items: shirts, pants, pleated skirts that are hardest but also always require ironing after wash. Some fabric types might need special attention, but other than that it’s all pretty much the same.

Shirts
The best start with a shirt is the sleeves, since they’ll be just fine hanging off the sides of the ironing board while you finish the rest of the shirt. Doing it the other way around, and leaving the sleeves for last, will end up causing wrinkles in other parts of the shirt that you’ve already ironed. Remember to open the cuff! It is the common mistake for ironing newbies. It will lets you do a better job ironing the whole sleeve.

Pants
Pants are one of the most common items when it comes to ironing. To achieve the goal of a pair of perfect pants or trousers, turn front pockets out and then press the iron on the top of the leg.  Lift the iron up, reinsert the pocket, and continue to press along the top of the trouser. Always keep it mind that you are pressing and lifting the iron — not pushing it along the fabric.

Pleated Skirts
Whether it’s a wool or a soft fabric with pleated folds, proper ironing is the key to a pleated skirt that looks as good as the day you brought it home! Start ironing at the top to the end of the pleats. Iron the pleats by pressing carefully with a light up-and-down motion, hitting the steam button just before each down motion. Don’t drag the iron on the fabric because dragging may stretch or distort the fabric or create unintended wrinkles.

Avoid Non-Fabrics
Many people don’t have an idea when it comes to some non-fabric items such as buttons (which can break because of the heat and force of the iron), screen printing (which will melt and smear all over the rest of the clothing) or sequins (which can melt). Maneuver the iron around the buttons and metal snaps using the pointy end of the iron. If you have a shirt that is completely covered in screen printing or sequins, you can turn the shirt inside out, or you can cover it with a thin piece of fabric and iron on top of that to avoid melting the rubbery print.
