Clothes Irons

A clothes iron is an ideal small tool of choice for eliminating wrinkles from all the various garments and linens in your life, and the right iron makes the task of pressing a breeze. At Williams Sonoma, we carry a selection of state-of-the-art clothes irons to make short work of this important laundry task. These irons are a particularly great choice for you to use with air-dried items pulled straight from your clothes drying rack. The exact model and style of iron you purchase can depend on a few different factors based on your lifestyle and laundry needs.

What to Look For in an Iron

There are a few key features to look for in an iron. They help you make sure you’re getting the right option for your needs. Safety features such as auto shut-off, which cuts the heat to the iron when you leave it idle, can be quite important. That’s especially true in homes with pets and kids who might accidentally knock an iron over when you leave it unattended for a moment. The shape and size of the iron can also play a big role in how you use it. If you generally need to do a lot of precision ironing around buttons and on shirt collars, a sharper iron tip lets you use the iron in a more targeted way. This kind of feature isn’t as essential when you tend to use your iron mostly for pressing linens. In this case, a larger surface area is likely to be more helpful for you because it makes quicker work of ironing wider, longer fabrics.

To Steam or Not to Steam?

High heat is a must for releasing stubborn wrinkles, especially in your thick fabrics such as linen or heavy cotton. However, high heat coming from a dry metal surface can get very hot. There’s an easy solution to this: steam. Steam is one of the most effective ways to achieve a high temperature without risking direct heat exposure on your favorite garments and linens. While steam is a great feature on a standard iron, handheld steamers that can work vertically without making direct contact with the garment or linen item are also very convenient for a variety of different uses. Some of the irons we offer either come with steam attachments or have built-in vertical steam capabilities. This feature is handy for steaming wrinkles out of everything from linen drapes to a silk gown on a hanger.

These irons may not allow for the same enjoyable aesthetic considerations as shopping for dinnerware sets and other colorful items, but careful consideration is important so you can use your iron exactly the way you need to. Think about the kind of clothing you tend to iron and which features can help you get the kind of finish you want your clothes to have. There are plenty of options to consider, even if you need to iron clothes made of fabrics that aren’t as common.
