The first thing to do, to hang out so that you don't have all the wrinkled clothes to iron, is to beat the clothes very well before hanging them for drying. We will lose a few minutes for this operation that will help us avoid hours spent ironing, save electricity, make up and distilled water.
You have to beat very vigorously, even 2-3 times, especially thick fabrics such as jeans or towels or those that tend to have a lot of creases such as linen or some types of cotton.
The washing programs must be short, the spin cycle must not exceed 600/800 rpm and the optimum temperature is 30/40 °. Unless you have really dirty laundry, almost everything can be washed at low temperatures.
Very hot water consumes the fabrics and wrinkles the fibers!
We use a little detergent so that no traces remain on the fabrics and we use fabric softener that stretches the fabrics. We spread as soon as the washing is finished using the "little men", fastening the buttons and positioning the shoulders correctly for the shirts and t-shirts while we pull the hems of the trousers well and stretch them for the waist.
The folding phase can be equivalent to ironing if it is performed on a hard surface such as the table, especially for towels, which must first be rolled up then passed under your hands by folding them.
We pay attention to purchases: we prefer garments in jersey, stretch cotton. even 100% cotton (as well as being more ecological) lends itself well to the precautions not to iron.
So we will only use the iron as an ornament.
