    • Flatten your jacket with your hands.

    • Set your iron to its lowest setting.

    • Starting near the center, iron the jacket in one smooth stroke running parallel to the zipper.

    • Only iron in one direction. Each stroke should go in the same direction. Change directions only when you move to a new section of the jacket.

    • Do not press down with the iron. Allow the heat and weight of the iron to do the work.

    • Always keep the iron moving. Stopping in one place can result in burnt fabric.

    • Remove the towel from your jacket.

    • Inspect your work.

    • If it looks as though the iron did nothing, you can increase the heat of your iron by one setting and try ironing again.

    • If your work looks good, position another section of the jacket flat on the ironing board, re-cover it with the towel and repeat the process until your whole jacket is wrinkle-free.

    • Don't forget to turn off the iron when you finish.

謝謝,對於說中文的外國人來說,這是一個很好的建議,即使他們沒有失去彈珠,他們也沒有投棄權,但仍然沒有任何線索。
