  1. Evening.

    Just wondering how people manage certain things with there uniform.

    Perfect rolled up sleeves, no creasing in them at all, competely flat. How do you get that?

    any other tips would be appreciated.
  2. Roll them up cuff width the whole way up and then iron them?
  3. If you leave them on your bed and get Bigbird to sit on them for a hour it works a treat.
  4. It always creases at the side and ends up slipping. Never perfect.

    Try turning the iron on.

  7. Ditto this and spray starch lots of!!!

  14. With working uniform, RSMs will accept clean and ironed flat - creases optional.
    As I'm a biff with creases, I don't bother having them in trousers or sleeves.
    After ironing the sleeves flat, it takes a minute to roll each sleeve up to an acceptable standard whilst wearing the shirt.
    I'll be in theatre soon so no more ironing for 7 months.
