At present, the ironing machines on the market are roughly divided into three categories: steam ironing, panel ironing and steam + panel ironing.
The advantage of steam ironing is that it is less destructive to the fabric, not easy to damage the fabric, and the high temperature steam can also play the role of sterilization. The disadvantage is that it is difficult to iron the clothes with stiff fabrics such as suits, and the details are difficult to shape. It is more suitable for soft fabrics such as cotton cloth.
The advantage of panel ironing is that it can give the clothes plasticity, such as ironing the neckline and cuff of the suit. The disadvantage is that the panel directly contacts the cloth, so it is difficult to control the panel temperature, which may damage the clothes because of the high temperature.
