There is nothing quite like crisp ironed bedding and a smooth silky pillowcase to fall into at the end of a hard day. If you’re a lover of the fresh dry cleaners finish on your bedding and or clothing, then you definitely need to try ironing water.
What is Ironing Water?
Ironing Water is a highly concentrated liquid that can be added to your iron or steamer to give fabrics a nice finish and freshness. Ironing your silk pillowcases or other silk items is essential for maintaining the quality and smoothness of the silk. Ironing Water is a great addition to the ironing process as it gives the fabric a smooth and crisp finish and adds a fresh scent.
Our favourite it the Ironing Water by The Laundress. Its fragrance is a blend of lily of the valley and jasmine with sweet musk, sandalwood, and a touch of citrus. It is non-toxic, biodegradable and allergen free. As it is highly concentrated it can be used up to 64 times.
How Do You Use It?
Always check the care label to determine if it is iron safe and which iron settings are suitable.
Turn your iron (or steamer) on and make sure the ironing surface is clean.
Simply add one capful to water in your iron or 2 capfuls to water in a steamer.
What Can Ironing Water Be Used On?
In addition, bedding and silk pillowcases, ironing water is great for dress shirts, suit jackets, linens and home furnishings. When ironing, Ironing Water is ideal forcotton, linen and blends. When steaming, Ironing Water can be used on silk, synthetics, wool, cashmere and blends.
