    if its common I have it on quite high, with lots of steam, that way the creases come up quick! any sort of material that may stick or burn like football top material I put on the lowest but one and anything with a logo I iron insideout

    IHATE IRONING:hissy::hissy::hissy:

    if you look ont he label it'll have a pic of an iron with dots on, the more dots the higher the heat. personally i just whack it on full and leave it on. but for some materials you cant have it on too hot cos it will ruin them

    Like someone said, check how many dots it shows on the label - on the dial for the heat on the iron, it should have dots on too - just match the heat to what the label says. If the thing you are ironing is totally dry, use the steam to help get creases out.

    If it has a printed logo on (as opposed to one that is sewn on) turn the thin inside out to iron it, or the print can stick to the hot iron.
