USING YOUR PRESSING EQUIPMENT

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Dont try to press the entire garment at one time, just one section at a time.
set your iron at medium or wool. you will need to experiment till you find
the right setting that suits you .
with the garment on the board or buck, place the press cloth on the
garment .
now dip your sponge in the water till its soaked.
lift it out over the water pan and squeeze it till its still wet but not dripping.
Now wipe the sponge across the press cloth lightly so that it leaves a thin
film of water on the press cloth. now you apply your iron.
it will take a while for you to develop your own technique for handling the sponge.

Why not make this all one thread? It would be much more useful for future reference. Ask the mods...

there is method to iron garments and this is not based only on wetting a little part or ironing a little piece per time...with a bad ironing you can ruin the garment. Normally customers should iron the garment only when strictly necessary touching only some few points nothing more.

You are right Musella

A complete pressing should be done by a professional presser.

Jefferd has an excellent tutorial on touch up pressing , its higher up on the list.
click on "touching up your suit".
