What irons are available at Harris Scarfe?
Steam irons have an easy-to-fill compartment for water, which they heat and emit as steam from holes in the ironing plate. The hot steam, combined with the flat ironing plate, quickly and easily flattens fabric and removes wrinkles in dry clothes.
If you just want to make staying on top of your never-ending ironing pile easier, a basic steam iron may be all you need. Or, if you want something more specialised to quickly de-wrinkle a garment with easily damaged fabric, a higher-tech clothes steamer or steam station may be a better option.
Either way, you'll find something to suit your needs from top brands like Russell Hobbs, Phoenix Gold and Tefal.
And while you're at it, be sure to explore our laundry storage, accessories and appliance solutions too.
What's the best way to iron clothes?
Better ironing actually begins when you wash and dry your clothes, and following the care instructions on the label will help to reduce any wrinkles from the get-go.
Once you're ready to iron, remember that different fabrics require different iron temperatures and techniques. Again, following the label instructions will help you protect your precious garments.
Other handy tips to help make ironing quicker and easier include:
- Use white vinegar to remove any scorch stains from clothing: if the worst happens, dip a clean cloth into the vinegar and wipe it over the stain. Repeat as needed, using a clean part of the cloth each time to avoid spreading the stain.
- Keep the plate of your iron clean: after every use, wipe the iron plate down with vinegar, baking soda or a Magic Eraser.
- Give the steam an extra boost: for a super crisp result, supplement your iron's steam by spritzing water from a spray bottle onto your clothes as you iron them.
- Invest in a good cover: the right ironing board makes all the difference when it comes to smooth, pressed clothes. But before you replace the whole thing, try a new ironing board cover first.
