Why ironing is necessary

When we take clothes out of the dryer, we need to decide what to do next: iron or just put in the closet.

Unfortunately, freshly washed clothes are not as clean as we think. The bacteria inside the washing machine can survive from cycle to cycle. The fact is that only very high temperatures can kill them (some bacteria survive even at 60 degrees). But not all clothes can be washed at these temperatures, and therefore experts recommend ironing.

It is believed that underwear has more germs. Ordinary underwear can be covered in feces and genital infections. Ironing makes clothes more sterile.

How to iron

Underwear, especially women’s, is made from thin and delicate fabrics. Therefore, you need to be careful with them.

Check the labels first. Cotton, silk, viscose and polyester are completely different fabrics that require specific temperatures.

Set the iron to the desired temperature. If in doubt, set the minimum temperature, which you can increase later.

Iron your clothes thoroughly. To protect the material, cover the laundry with a protective piece of fabric and iron over it. Fold the laundry and put it in a separate drawer.
