How to Press a Wrinkle-Free Shirt
Follow the washing and drying instructions for your wrinkle-free shirt. You will most likely have to run it on the delicate cycle. Pull the shirt out of the dryer as soon as the cycle is complete and it is completely dry. If you will not have time to press it immediately, hang the shirt on a hanger until you are ready to press it.
Set up your ironing board and make sure that your iron is filled with water to the minimum level. Look at the tag on the shirt to review the ironing instructions. It will likely suggest a cool iron or low heat. Turn your iron's setting onto low heat and allow it time to heat up.
Spread your shirt across the ironing board. Run the iron up and down the shirt, keeping it in one place just long enough to remove the wrinkles and leave a smooth surface. Continue this process for the entire shirt. Pay attention to creases that are in place to make sure that you do not remove them with the iron.
Press the sleeves of your wrinkle-free shirt. Drape the sleeve across the ironing board. Make sure to fold it so that it is folded on the crease. You may have to smooth out the shirt sleeve with your hand so that you do not cause any new creases or wrinkles with the iron. Run the iron along the shirt sleeve until all the wrinkles are smoothed out. Run it along the fold to reinforce the crease. Repeat this process with both shirt sleeves.
Press the collar of your wrinkle-free shirt with the iron. Unfold the collar so that it is flat. Gently run the iron along the surface of the collar to make sure it is smooth.
Place your pressed shirt on the hanger once again and turn it around to make sure all the wrinkles have been removed. Repress any areas that may need a touch up.
