I prewash my fabrics but I want to know if I have to iron them too. Other than aesthetics, is there a reason to have your fabric ironed in the cupboard? This stack is washed and folded, but not ironed.
I was ironing new fabrics, putting them away, and ironing them again before cutting them. Why? I'll fold it, I'll make pretty stacks, but do I have to iron it? Can't I just iron once, right before I need it?
I read recently that the chemicals that are on new fabric can discolor and damage it over time. They also contain pesticides to repel bugs. It made me want to wash everything in my cupboard... now. Hence the ironing!
What do you do?
