How to iron a thobe? Formal designer luxury thobe - dark blue



Ironing a thobe helps maintain its neat and crisp appearance. Here's a step-by-step guide to iron a thobe properly:

You'll need:

  • An iron
  • Ironing board or a flat, padded surface
  • Clean spray bottle filled with water (optional)
  • Clean cloth (optional)


  1. Check the Fabric Label:

    • Different fabrics have different heat tolerances. Check the care label to ensure you're using the right heat setting.
  2. Prepare the Iron:

    • Plug in the iron and set it to the appropriate heat setting for the fabric. For cotton or blends, a medium-high heat is typically suitable. For delicate fabrics, use a lower heat setting.
  3. Set Up the Ironing Area:

    • Lay out the thobe on the ironing board or a clean, flat surface. Smooth out any wrinkles or folds.
  4. Steam (Optional):

    • If the thobe is particularly wrinkled, consider using a clean spray bottle to lightly mist the fabric with water. This can help to ease out stubborn wrinkles.
  5. Iron the Collar:

    • Start with the collar. Gently press and move the iron from one end to the other, taking care around any buttons or embellishments.
  6. Iron the Sleeves:

    • Fold one sleeve over the ironing board and iron the top side, then the bottom side. Repeat for the other sleeve.
  7. Iron the Body:

    • Begin at the top of the thobe and work your way down, using long, even strokes. Take care around any pockets, buttons, or decorations.
  8. Pay Attention to Detail:

    • If there are any intricate details or delicate areas (like embroidery), use a clean cloth as a buffer between the iron and the fabric to avoid direct contact.
  9. Adjust as Needed:

    • If you encounter any stubborn wrinkles, go over them with the iron or use a burst of steam.
  10. Hang or Fold Properly:

  • Once the thobe is thoroughly ironed, hang it up or fold it neatly to avoid new wrinkles.

Remember to always check the care label and use a lower heat setting for delicate fabrics. Take your time and be cautious around any embellishments to avoid damage. With care, your thobe will look fresh and well-maintained.
