Question: What's the best way to iron a dress shirt?
Answer: Ironing carefully will ensure your shirts look their absolute best each time you wear them. Use the lowest temperature that is effective. Turn on the steam setting if necessary. Thicker fabric will require more heat and steam than thin fabric.
Iron the back of the shirt first, from the center to the sides. Iron the sleeves next, followed by the cuffs. Turn the shirt over and iron each side of the front, taking care to iron between buttons instead of running over them. Iron the collar last. Hang (or wear) immediately to avoid getting new wrinkles in the fabric.
If this seems like too much work consider using a good commercial laundry. In the Minneapolis/St.Paul metro area I recommend Skylark Cleaning. They are eco friendly and do exceptional work on shirts as well as dry cleaning of suits, jackets and trousers.
