Hi, I'm Marti on behalf of expertvillage.com I'm going to share with you today how to iron a basic pair of khaki pants. Here is an example of where a seam changes directions; it should be going away from me. However in this area, it's coming towards me so I'm going to take a moment to get that to lay properly. One trick I have is using starch. I like to starch the inside of my pants and not the outside of my pants. There is a couple of reasons for that. Sometimes when you starch if you have to much you can leave like a powdery residue and it can also sometimes cause the fabric to shine up a little bit. Since I don't want powdery shiny khakis, I'm going to starch the inside. Now I use my own starch mixture easy enough to make.
