Chapter eight, sleeves. When you're ironing sleeves on a dress shirt the most important part to remember is to keep the seams aligned. You want to make sure that you're not getting multiple, multiple pleats, or multiple creases on your sleeves. You can usually tell where the old one is and you want to make sure that you stick with that same crease so that you're not having multiple creases on the sleeve. So the best way to do that is just the seam that's on the under part of the shirt, just use that as a guide, making sure that's flat, and then you'll pretty much get the same crease every time. Lay that flat on your ironing board, and just make sure that all, the shirt is as flat as possible. You spray the starch from the inside of the arm to the wrist. Make sure to apply a lot of pressure. Make sure you get all the way to the end of the seam, underneath the arm tends to get very wrinkled under there. Don't be afraid to get a good crease on the top part of the arm, this is a dress shirt, creases are okay. Men like to have a nice creased shirt when they go to work. And to get all the way to the cuff. The one thing I always like to do is just to flip it to the other side, spray another layer of starch, and just repeat the process. From one end to the other, trying to work around the buttons and all the pleats. You have a nice, finished product, and all you have to do is just repeat the process on the other side.
