She Covers Her Ironing Board In Tin Foil. Then, She Reveals A Tip I Wish I Knew About Earlier

If you're like most people, when you're in a rush and your piece of clothing needs to be ironed you probably just choose another piece of clothing to wear. It might be the lazy way out, but sometimes you just have to look for the easiest solution and go with it. The good news is, maybe you don't have to choose another outfit to wear. This is one of the real life hacks that teaches us how to iron our clothes quickly and efficiently, and all you need is some simple aluminium foil. To try and avoid wrinkles in the first place, a good trick is to dry them on your dryer's hottest setting if the piece of clothing is okay to go in the dryer. Once the piece of clothing is out of the dryer just hang it up right away. If your clothes can't go in the dryer because they're made with delicate fabrics that may shrink when put in the dryer, then you'll have to hang them to dry and iron them once they're dry. Some fabrics can't even be ironed so make sure that you read the label well to determine what's best for your garment.

Just get some simple aluminium foil and get ready to iron. Lift up your ironing board cover and cover the top of your ironing board with the aluminium foil, making sure that the shiny side is facing up. Then, place the ironing board pad over top of it. Then, just iron your garments as usual, but you'll notice that this helps speed up the process. With the aluminium foil underneath the piece of clothing, it reflects the heat back up onto the other side of the garment. It surrounds the material in heat which flattens out any wrinkles. You won't have to flip over your piece of clothing to get it wrinkle free, which is why it takes less time to iron it.
