EQUIPMENT NEEDED FOR PRESSING YOUR SUIT

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
First go to a fabric store. Ask for 100 % cotton drill.
purchase one yard, thats about 6 or 7 bucks.
at home toss in the washer along with the laundry..
after drying, iron it out with steam .
now cut a strip 10" wide and the full 36" length of
the cloth. do the same on the other side
You now have 3 10"wide strips.
Take the center cut and divide into two pieces..
you now have a life time supply of press cloths.

next you need a sponge a plastic is ok but a natural
one is best. a size smaller than your fist is all you need.

A small container for water. I am using a cat watering dish.

A dry iron. A steam one is ok but use it with the tank empty.

an ironing board. and/or various tailors bucks or a
tailors ham.

now you are ready.
