Be sure to set the iron to the correct temperature for the fabric that you are ironing (check the label first). Iron corduroy and wool inside out to prevent crushing the corduroy or making the wool look shiny. Steam can help release wrinkles as you iron, especially in cotton and linen.
When there is a smoker in the house or one who frequently rides in your vehicle with you. The items that you bring in might smell smoky. To avoid this, prepare your items just before bringing them in for inspection. Or if you found that you've had them in the car for a few days - hang them outside in fresh air for a few hours. This will also help with any wrinkles that has formed while sitting in your car.
Pet hair can get on everything - and most pet lovers overlook it because it is such a part of their lives. Even the cleanest household that has a shedding lab or long haired cat is plagued by pet hair. Freshly washed items can still have pet hair on them because it stays in the washing machine. Sometimes it just takes being set in the car where the cat or dog sits to reappear. Even though light colored hair is easily noticeable on darker clothing and vice versa, please take the time to use a lint brush (or masking tape) to remove pet hair from your freshly laundered clothes prior to bringing them in.
Remember, the better your items look, the faster they will sell and the more money you will make!
