Before you break out the ironing board for that most dreaded of tasks. Take a second to turn all the clothing you plan to iron inside out. Why? Because ironing can actually cause dark colors to fade (and fade unevenly if you just spot ironing a garment). Plus, if your shirt or pants has a bit of sheen to it, ironing can actually create shine marks. By ironing the inside of the garment you can avoid any discoloring or shiny patches.
