Dress shirts and pants are usually difficult to iron, especially since one has to not only iron the creases out of one side, but also the other. Often, this causes wrinkles to repeatedly appear since the fabric often moves around and the seams become misaligned once we turn the piece of clothing over.
A company called Quirky, however, is offering a simple solution to the perennial problem of keeping clothes taut. The product, aptly called Outline, is a metal frame that is made up of a steel loop with a sliding handle at its middle.
The concept is so simple that it is curious how this is still not in wide use today. To use the tool, the Outline’s handle is moved to widen or tighten the loop, allowing it to be slipped perfectly in and out of a sleeve. If the sleeve is large, the handle may also be removed. Outline may also be used on pant legs or anything else that needs to be pulled taut to be ironed.
The spring steel loop is coated with silicone while the handle is made of Polypropylene and weighs 19.5 grams. The handle measures 2.5 x 1 inch, while the loop measures around 24 inches. Jeff Hufford is credited as the inventor of this simple but helpful tool. To date, its price is unavailable.
