And hard surfaces can also cause the finished project to have a shiny, overpressed look that’s tough — if not impossible — to remove. Choose a muslin or nonreflective ironing board cover. The silver, reflector-type covers are too slippery and sometimes get too hot, causing unnecessary scorching on some synthetic fabrics.
