How to iron a shirt and press trouser creases


Some good tips here on pressing and ironing. I have never heard a clapper being called a “banger”, but it definitely makes a super sharp creases.
Another little trick is to use fine cotton pressing cloth and moisten it with water and vinegar mix.

I have learnt it from my uncle, who is a very sharp dresser and always presses and irons his own clothes. He said that vinegar holds creases for longer and removes any shine from the trousers.
