Technique for Ironing The Cotton

Aug 17, 2007
The next article will tell you on ironing technique for cotton. In today's busy world, when more and more women work outside the home as well as in it the only servant most of us have is that mysterious traveler electricity.

OBLONG DOILIES AND TABLE RUNNERS should be ironed with the weave, in one direction only, so that they will lie flat. Again, start with straight corners. If linen is embroidered, iron it face down on a well padded board to raise the design.

IRON ROUND DOILIES from center to edge with the weave of the material.

CROCHETED AND HEAVY LACE DOILIES should be spread fiat and coaxed into shape with your fingers, on a kitchen or laundry table. They will not need ironing.

STORAGE. Store table runners folded lightly or wrapped around a cardboard tube. Place small doilies flat in a drawer, taking care not to crease them.

IRONING TECHNIQUES FOR COTTONS are the same as for linens, but the iron must of course be the proper temperature. If you have an assortment of materials to iron begin with the ones that need the least heat (synthetics) and finish with the heavy linens which require the most. These notes on the proper treatment of china, silver, glassware and the table linens may seem tedious, but is it really more difficult to care for them properly than to follow a haphazard method? Properly handled, these fine accessories will grace your table for years, bringing pleasure to your family and your friends.

No one completely understands electricity; but day after day it accomplishes prodigious chores. For a few cents' toll, like a partially-tamed genie, it gives us light, washes our clothes, makes our toast, polishes floors, washes dishes, provides easy ironing, makes coffee, does the dishes, cooks waffles, and runs the kitchen range. For diversion it provides radio and television shows.

ELECTRICITY IS EVERYBODY'S FRIEND as long as it is handled properly. Abused, it bogs down on the quality of its service, blows fuses, burns out equipment, and even sets houses afire. Government safety specialists of the United States Department of Agriculture recently warned that at lease 12 per cent of all home fires today are caused by the misuse of electricity. Therefore it is important to know the basic rules for ingratiating our helper.

HAZARDS. Experts tell us that well equipped homes today are using twice as much electricity as they did a decade ago, yet many household wiring systems have not been modernized to take care of the increased load. Overloaded wires have become an ever increasing hazard as more and more electrical equipment, especially high-wattage and automatic appliances are brought into use. Overloaded wires may blow fuses, overheat and damage insulation, and start fires smoldering in walls. The remedy is a checkup of your home if you feel that larger wires and more circuits may be needed for the equipment you have or are considering buying. Some estimates say that as many as half of America's homes need their wiring systems modernized to keep pace with such equipment as home freezers, clothes dryers, air conditioners, and television sets.

Oblong doilies should be ironed with the weave. Cottons has to be ironed same as for the lines, it has to be in the proper temperature. Handle the electricity properly. Misuse of the electricity can caused fires. Avoid the overloaded wires, which may blow fuses.
