The 10 minute tip today is super simple. I have NEVER put water in my iron. It's true. I keep a spray bottle of water on my ironing board and I use it to spritz whatever I am pressing. I find that I get a nice crisp press and my iron lasts forever. I don't have to worry about my iron leaking or spitting or corroding. My iron will last forever (until I drop it, oops!)
I know everyone has their own methods for completing different quilting tasks, but this is something I have done for as long as I can remember and it is still working well for me. Yes, I've tried those fancy pressing sprays that smell good, and I actually do like them, but I find that water is just as good and it's free!
Do you have any pressing secrets you would like to share? I would love to hear them!
