Hi, my name is Leslie Moselle, and I'm from Tampa Florida, and on behalf of Expert Village,
this is how to iron a dress shirt. Chapter twelve, the back side. We've already done
the right side of the shirt, now we've worked our way to the back side. I like to work in
that direction that way you're just assuring that you're not wrinkling any of the areas
that you've already ironed. So, I've already ironed the right side, but I like to start
off from the seam, in between the right side and the back side, making sure I don't forget
any of the wrinkled areas that I may not have gotten to before. I just go ahead and spray
my starch. Depending on how crisp you like your shirt to look you can spray a little
heavier amount of starch. But the areas I like to focus on again are the areas close
to the pleats. There's a lot of pleating going on, on the back side of the shirt, underneath
the shoulders. I like to focus under the arms, and around the seam that connects the right
panel and the back side of the shirt. You know most of the time the shirts will be tucked
in so you don't have to do too much pressing toward the bottom of the shirt, but to be
more efficient just try to get the whole area. Make sure to iron it until it's dry. You probably
get some water spots here and there, so you just continue to run your iron over it until
it's dry. Just work the shirt around until you get the whole back side of the shirt ironed.
One thing to always remember is to try to get as close up to the collar as possible.
This is a difficult area sometimes to get ironed, right underneath the collar, in between
the shoulders of the shirt. Some people forget to get really close up to the collar. And
just work your way from the right side, the right seam, all the way to the left seam of
the back of the shirt. There you go, and that's the back side of your shirt.
