Actually the Ironing Goddess is female. I would take it quite amiss if a guy tried to instruct me on how to iron. I’ve done truckloads of men’s shirts in my lifetime. But, as I posted before, do this however you want. There is no legal or illegal in this matter.

Kudos to a guy who irons his shirts!

And Merry Christmas!

It's also very useful for pleats below a waistband, but you know that.

True, but I can't recall the last time I saw pleated pants, let alone ironed a pair.

It's been a long time for me, too, but we both have that notch on our belt.

The tapered side is used for sleeves, cuffs and collars.

When you sew, you press.

Big flattish things like the back of a shirt go on the square side.
The tapered end is good for getting inside narrow things like the shoulder of a shirt.

I never gave it a thought; I always just use the tapered side.
