How to Neatly Iron a Shirt Using ELBEE Steam Irons

Ironing a shirt may seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools and techniques, it can be quite simple. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of neatly ironing a shirt using ELBEE Steam Irons.

Preparing the Shirt

Before you start ironing, it’s essential to prepare your shirt. First, sort your shirts by fabric type. Cotton and linen shirts should be washed separately from synthetic fabrics like polyester or nylon, as the latter can melt when exposed to high temperatures. Once sorted, lay out each shirt on an ironing board and smooth out any wrinkles with your hands. Make sure that all buttons are fastened so they don’t get caught in the steam of the iron later on. If spotted or stained, pre-treat with a stain remover prior to the commencement of ironing.

Setting Up the Iron

Setting up your ELBEE Steam Iron is the first step to a perfectly pressed shirt. First, fill your steam iron with water. Make sure to use distilled or filtered water if possible; tap water can leave behind mineral deposits in the tank over time. Fill it until it reaches the “max” line on the side of the tank – never exceed this amount. Once filled, put your steam iron back onto its base and plug it into a power outlet.

Next comes temperature adjustment. Most irons come with several settings for different types of fabric; look at your garment’s care label for guidance on which setting to choose. Set your dial accordingly before turning on the power switch. You may also want to check whether there are any additional features available such as a spray button or burst-of-steam option that could help you achieve better results when pressing more delicate fabrics.

Ironing Basics

Start at the collar and work in sections. Adjust the temperature settings according to the fabric of your shirt. Use steam when necessary, but be cautious not to use it when ironing delicate fabrics.

Finishing Touches

After ironing, use a clothes brush to remove any lint or dust that may have accumulated during the ironing process. If necessary, use a pressing cloth to protect delicate fabrics. Finally, hang up your shirt to keep it wrinkle-free.


Ironing a shirt with a steam iron may seem intimidating, but with these tips and your ELBEE Steam Iron, you can make your clothes look sharp and wrinkle-free. Happy ironing!
