Here's something I don't understand: my Rbt Talbott shirt says to "cold iron" but that doesn't get the wrinkles out (after hang drying). Â The shirt seems very sturdy so I'm surprised at this requirement. I'll try the Kabbaz method next time.
I think you mean "cool iron", as my Talbott shirts also say this on the tag. Â When I iron my Talbott's I just turn the setting up on my Rowenta a bit past the minimum setting for temperature. Â This is usually sufficient for removing wrinkles. Â I am pretty certain that you could iron them at the warmest setting and there wouldn't be any damaging effects to the shirt. Â I have not had any problems, so just turn up the setting a bit and you should be fine. Personally, I wash all my shirts on gentle cycle, using cold water and Woolite. Â I then hang them up to dry in a spot that doesn't have direct sunlight, and adequate air circulation. I iron all my shirts using my Rowenta (hightly recommended, as I have been through 3 irons before the Rowenta). Â [/quote]So who starches their shirts here? Â How much? Â What sort of starch? I never use starch, since it can damage the fabric over time by making the threads more brittle. Â The only time I ever used starch was on my RL pinpoint oxford, but that is a much sturdier fabric than egyptian cotton, for example. Â At the very most, using it on pinpoint oxford would be the only exception, otherwise stay away from starch.
