Assuming I have a rumpled shirt and there's no electricity, how can I press the shirt instead of usual ironing?
Hanging in the bathroom while you take a hot shower.
Place under a heavy object like a book (for a while, like overnight)
Get it wet and hang it in the wind. A clothes pin prevents it from blowing off the hanger.
Placing between mattress and box spring works best with pants.
I suggest you to follow the hack we used in our old days as described below:
Place your rumpled shirt on an ironing table or on any flat surface unfolded (make it free from all folds as ready to get ironed)
Get a steel plate as shown
- Pour not boiling water into it
- Carefully plate it over your shirt and give it an ironing.
- Please take care about your fingers while holding the plate.
- If required you can place the plate on shirt and then move it over to various parts of shirt, thus reducing effect on fingers.(this depends upon material of your shirt)
