Ladies, the wedding season is here! Now we know that you can’t wait to get your hands on your mother’s silk saree. After all, who wouldn’t want to rock nine yards of elegance?But before this, there is one key task, which mostly everyone detests. And that is ironing a saree. The mere thought is enough to give nightmares to anyone because so much can go wrong!
But fret not! We’ve got you covered with a how-to on ironing a saree and taking care of it.
- On your iron board or table, lay out a piece of cloth to ensure that the colours of other fabrics don’t seep into the colour of your saree
- Get your steam iron ready. It is important that you invest in a good one. You can check out some of them here
- Now if you are using the Bajaj Majesty MX 30 Steam Iron, you need not worry about making a mistake, because these heating appliances because they are a lot better than getting the creases out than regular irons
- Now turn your saree inside out. It’s always wise to iron the backside of a fabric. This is the side that has the matte finish
- Another thing that you must do is put a cotton cloth on the area you want to iron
- Now press the iron on that cloth and begin ironing. But make sure that you don’t spend too much time on one area as you might burn your saree. The best part is that the Bajaj MX7 is lightweight and is equipped with a comfortable grip. So, you won’t even get tired finding your way through the nine yards
- What you also need to remember is that you don’t move the steam iron back and forth continuously over a part as that might affect the shape of the fabric. Instead rest it on a wrinkled area for a short period of time and then let it cool for better results
- Once you are done with this part, shift the saree up and repeat the process for all the parts. The Bajaj MX7 is fitted with a non-stick coated sole plate for easy glide. You need not worry about the cloth sticking to the surface iron because of this feature
- Let your saree cool before you move it or else this could lead to more wrinkles
- Once you are done ironing, it is also important that you take care of your steam iron. Drain the remaining water.
