    I use a very hot iron, and always have a spray bottle with plain water next to me.

    I use a dry iron and a spray bottle of water for stubborn wrinkles.

    I do the exact same thing.

    I use a steam iron when needed. Then when the water runs out, I use a dry iron. If I need a shot of steam after the water runs out, I use a shot of spray starch!
