Ironing 101 Tips. Ironing Lace. What Do I Recommend?
Set your iron to a low temperature.
NO steam setting.
Why no steam? Because your iron won’t be hot enough to generate steam. It will just leak if you have the steam setting on.
Put your lace item on a plush towel. And iron it while it’s damp.
The plush towel stops the tip of your iron from getting caught in the lace. And damaging it.
Nothing could be easier.
So rummage through those drawers and trunks that store things not to be used.
And bring out the lace!
