Ironing Pressing Steaming

Ironing involves using a flat iron with a heated metal plate to smooth out wrinkles and creases in fabric. The iron is typically moved back and forth over the fabric, applying pressure and steam to help smooth out the wrinkles. Ironing is best suited for fabrics that can withstand heat and pressure, such as cotton, linen, and wool.

Pressing is similar to ironing, but instead of moving the iron back and forth over the fabric, pressure is applied to the iron while it is stationary on the fabric. This method is often used for more delicate fabrics, such as silk or satin, that may be damaged by the movement of an iron. Pressing can also be used to create sharp creases in pants and other garments.
