Dry irons have long been a household staple for achieving crisp, wrinkle-free clothing. These simple yet effective appliances are designed to remove creases and flatten fabrics with the application of heat.
A dry iron is a traditional, non-steam iron that uses heat and pressure to remove wrinkles from fabrics. It consists of a flat soleplate, a handle, and a temperature control dial. Unlike steam irons, dry irons do not have a built-in water reservoir or steam-generating capabilities.
Dry irons work by heating the soleplate to a specific temperature. When the heated soleplate comes into contact with wrinkled fabric, the heat penetrates the fibers and relaxes them. The weight and pressure applied by the iron, along with the gliding motion, help smooth out the fabric and eliminate wrinkles.
