Can I iron my own super150 slacks?

They have a bit of a fold, not really a crease, just below the waistband from sitting in a chair all day. Wondering if I can iron them myself. I'll presume I need to put something on top of them. Recommendations?

I have used clean old "T" shirts to protect the cloth from shining.

You need a cloth in between the iron and trousers. Iron with a pressing motion, not rubbing.

How would ironing over a cover cloth differ from pressing over the cover cloth as neither of them are in contact with the slacks?
