Clothes iron

A clothes iron is a handheld piece of equipment with a flat, roughly triangular surface that, when heated, is used to press clothes to remove creases. Electric irons, as seen here, were invented in 1882 by Henry W. Seeley; earlier versions had been heated in a fire or filled with hot coals.
