Lynsey's top tips for ironing your clothes -

- Sort your clothes into fabric types before you start to iron them.- Only iron what you really need to.- Position your ironing board well at belly button height.- Have hangers at the ready to avoid creasing after ironing!- Iron dark clothes inside out.- Do all zips up before you start ironing - as this can affect the outcome.

Lynsey's top tips for what to do if you don't own an iron - - Put clothes on hangers as soon as they come out of the wash and air dry them outside or hang up on a window. 

- Only put a few items in your tumble drier at a time and add in a few ice cubes. 

- Hang clothes in the bathroom when you are having a shower. The steam from the hot water will release creases and help straighten them out.
