• ​Iron low temperature fabrics first to reduce warm up time.
  • Iron large batches of clothing at one time to avoid wasting energy by reheating the iron several times.
  • Switch your iron off before you are totally finished and complete the ironing on stored energy.
  • Prevent scorching and wasting energy by not over heating the iron.
  • Use only distilled water in steam irons.
  • Be sure to turn off your iron if you are interrupted whilst ironing.
  • Buy ‘no iron’ sheets and clothing; use the permanent press feature on your washer and dryer if it is available. By removing clothing immediately from the dryer and folding them carefully, many items will require no ironing, or just a quick press.
