Question

How do I avoid getting shiny patches on garments during ironing?

Answer

Fabrics can acquire shiny patches if they are ironed at high temperatures, especially if the garment surface being ironed is uneven, such as a pocket or a fold line below the garment.

The shine or imprint is not permanent and will come off if you wash the garment.

Avoid ironing over seams or folds, or you can place a cotton cloth over the area to be ironed to avoid imprints.
