How To Iron A Tenacious Fold
Do you have any trouble bending when looking to cut a sewing pattern? You know, when the fabric is not perfectly flat, not perfectly ironed and there is a crease in the center? It can be painful and very boring.
It happens if you have long left the fabric folded on a shelf, among others. You can iron, the fold seems to be inscribed in the fabric permanently. But do not panic, there may be hope.
Indeed, it is sufficient to mix alcohol vinegar and water in equal parts and pour the mixture into a vaporizer. Spray this mixture on the fabric and let stand for a minute.
Iron the fabric by sliding the iron vertically along the straight edge. Repeat as necessary.
Steam and vinegar will allow the fibers to relax. Do a test on a fabric fall, just in case.
How to easily fill an iron
There is no denying the importance of ironing in the art of sewing! I have talked about it many times before. But filling an iron is often a puzzle!
Do you also unplug your iron, bring it near a sink or sink and then carefully fill it from the tap, trying not to do too much damage?
If this is the case, there is a very easy solution to put in place that will save you time.
A trick to quickly fill an iron?
Just clean a bottle of wine or alcohol and fill it with water. This may be partly demineralized water. Most irons now have a descaling system and can be used with tap water. But if the water in your home is very limestone, then it may be wise to mix 50% tap water with 50% demineralized water. Note that it is important to never use pure demineralized water as this could damage your iron; and I guess that’s not what you’re looking for! It’s the same with scented water, distilled water or rainwater.
Then add a pouring spout like those used in bars to pour strong spirits into cocktails or those that can be added to bottles of olive oil.
As these are designed to pour liquids with a steady flow, you will not fill your iron too quickly which would result in overflow very quickly! And besides, as the tip of the spout is rather narrow, it is well adapted to the iron, not to mention that you will save several trips to the nearest sink!
