How to Iron a Button-Down Shirt

button-shirt.pngIroning a button-down shirt is a bit of an acquired skill. Home improvement site DIY Life has a quick and dirty tutorial on how to get that shirt wrinkle-free in five easy steps:

  • Begin with the collar, inside and out, starting at the tips and working your way to the back.
  • Do the cuffs.
  • Slide the shoulder onto the end of the board and do the sleeves. Start new the cuff opening then move to the top.
  • Iron the body. Start at the top and go down. The back is low priority — it will wrinkles from sitting against the back of a chair or in a car.
  • Slide the tip of the iron between the buttons.

Pretty easy. Personally, I hate ironing, so I just hang my wrinkly clothes in the bathroom while everyone showers and let the steam do the work for me.
