Hi! I'm Joyce Danielson with Expert Village. Now if you don't have a good steam iron, you can always get a bottle of water and spritz and spray as you go along. But I love this little iron because it puts out a lot of steam. For this type of thing, it works really well. And some people because of the length of the sheet, some people have a stool or something on the other side of the ironing board so as the sheet goes over it doesn't land on the floor, it will keep it clean. You can put an old sheet down on the floor also to keep it off of the floor in case your floor is dirty.
