Happy Friday to you, Sea Spray fans, and welcome to our latest edition of Fun Fact Friday! This week, we're taking a look at the origins of ironing. Did you know that concept of ironing has been around for millennia, with the ancient Chinese to be the first recorded civilization of ironing? The Chinese took a pan, filled it with hot coals, and used that to run down the fabric, making it wrinkle-free in the process. Modern ironing wasn't developed until the advent of the blacksmith, who created metal irons that ran on coal. However the iron of today that we're used to did not come into focus until the early 20th century, when a patent for a removable iron handle was filed. Ironing has been around for a long time, but it can also take a long time to do. Instead, how about you run over whatever you need pressed to us, and we'll take care of it stress-free. Or better yet, give us a call and have us pick up your garments, for no extra charge. We strive to keep the tradition of ironing alive, while keeping our reputation for making your clothes look good as new alive and well. Give us a call today to get started!
