Hate ironing your shirt collar, but still want that fresh-pressed look? Here’s the solution.
Introducing the Collar Press, a revolutionary new product that takes over ironing duties for shirts while inside the clothes dryer aims to change how we do our laundry.
Founded in Ontario by entrepreneur Michael Mota, the Collar Press will change how laundry is done for any household with a washer and dryer.

Collar Press: How it Works
Place the inside collar of your shirt on the bottom side of Collar Press (the metal side).
Close the Collar Press
Attach clips and place shirt in dryer
Note: The magnets in the Collar Press clips secure the shirt to the drum of the dryer, eliminating any chance of Collar Guard damaging your dryer, your shirt, or other clothes.

While I definitely applaud Michael’s ingenuity, I struggle with the solution for a couple of reasons.
At $40 per 2-pack, I’d need to buy at least 3-4 Collar Press packs of to cover the number of shirts I normally launder at the same time.
That means I’d have to spend $120-$160 to equip our laundry room. Seems a bit expensive.
Ironing the Rest of the Shirt
In our household, we don’t have the luxury of having a steam dryer — we just have an average, everyday tumble dryer.
Also, as a general rule of thumb, we hang/air dry all of our button up shirts.
So, we wind up having to iron all of our button-up shirts, except for those of mine that are linen — which are naturally a little wrinkled.
That being said, even if we did tumble dry our button-up shirts, since we don’t have a steam dryer, we’d still need to iron them.
Because of the two reasons above, I’d be hard pressed (pun intended) to be a Collar Press customer.
