As parents and children all over the country get back into the swing of the school routine, there’s one task which can often become a chore that’s difficult to keep on top of. The school uniform ironing pile.

Having to negotiate collars and cuffs, pleated skirts, neat trouser seams  and PE kits on a weekly basis can often become overwhelming, so we’ve gathered some top ironing tips from our experts here at Morphy Richards.

  • For pleated skirts or trousers to keep children looking smart, lay the garment on the ironing board and arrange the pleats with your hands as they naturally fall. Iron pleats from top to bottom
  • Put a tea towel between the iron and the garment to avoid the shiny finish often common with dark fabrics
  • Use your iron’s water spray and steam functions to make the job easier
  • Ideally, have a whole week’s worth of pressed uniforms hung in the wardrobe ready for the week ahead to avoid that manic morning rush (we know this is easier said than done!)
  • Don’t forget to get some iron on name tags for kids’ uniforms. Much quicker and easier than sewing them on one by one with a needle and thread
