    Is this an example of bad technique? - in the interests of learning (of course)

    Well ... he showed a little enthusiasm but seemed to be ironing due to a condition known as "I need something to go out in" rather than a true love of ironing ...

    And did people notice the lack of steam? And the inaccuracy as he got to the edges? I think I might email him and ask for an example of him ironing a double-cuffed shirt with yoke ... now that is a good test of the ability to iron.

    erm ...

    I'll get my coat.

    Re: I have seen the future

    Yep definately a lack of pressure used there, with no regard to the edges. I also noted a lack of any attempt to put in any sharp creases. Utterly deplorable.

    A shame to ironing enthusiasts.

    As far as equipment goes - nothing beats a good solid table covered with a blanket and good heavy steam iron. None of this fancy ironing board stuff or adjustable steam & spray gadgets required.

    A wet hankerchief is usful too - picking off dry bogies first is highly recommended.

A good solid board that will allow you to put a lot of pressure on it too ... none of this cheap chipboard.

    And it needs to have a built in stand ... and then there are the extra bits. A decent Irish linen tea towel, and a thinner cotton hanky. These are used to cover trousers / jackets so they don't go shiny. And never use the built in spray ... cough up for a decent demister from a reputable gardening centre. This gives a more even spray and you should always remember to lightly spray the more creased items about 5-10 minutes before you iron them.

    erm ....

    Yes, get your coat and come on round to my house. My wife hates ironing and observing your enthusiasm for the art, I'm sure you would love to get some practise in!

    Yes you are quite right............

    Please folks remember to take the Year 7's out of the Blazers before ironing them. They tend to stick to the lining if you don't

    Guys starch and board have nothing to do with it, ironing is a state of mind. you need a good padded board that helps but nothing matches experience.
