A Brief History of the Iron

 

 A hand iron is a piece of equipment that is used for pressing garments.  Today irons are heated by electricity. In the past irons have been heated by gas flame, stove plate heat, or by setting the iron on hot coals.  In 1882 a man by the name of Henry W. Seely patented the electric iron which at the time was called the electric flatiron. It was not a very save way to iron.

Steam irons which are what most irons are today came about in the 1950's. Back then they were made of metal, today as we know most are made of plastic on the outside and if they fall off your ironing board will most likely break.

Irons made of iron with a handle can be found in many antique stores today.  They are usually black and heavy.  They were put on hot coals, then the garment was sprinkled with water, and then it was pressed.
