The idea of straightening clothes is very old. It starts with straightening tools made of wood, glass or marble, while the whole process is improved by adding heat. So heavy stones were heated in the fireplace and used to press the clothes. The first reference to the use of iron for laundry is made in the 17th century.

The first irons are heated on an open fire, but subsequent improved versions include hollow irons. Henry W. Seely (USA) 1882 invented the electric iron, which was heated by an electric arc. Seely improved this construction in 1883 with a much safer cordless electric iron. In 1926 in New York, the dry cleaning company Eldec introduced the first steam iron to the market.
