Iron damp or re-wet with spray part of iron before ironing. This last part is time-intensive but I somehow find it soothing. +1 on being soothing. For some reason I love ironing my kids clothes (they are 4 & 5), they look so much better when their stuff is ironed and I get a kick out of making them more presentable for no cost. Whilst I'm in the "zone" its not too much of a hassle to do my own shirts.
