Designed by Laurastar Swiss engineers, the 3D soleplate protects your delicate fabrics and prevents the appearance of shiny patches on dark fabrics. It also allows you to iron over delicate fabrics, such as silk, which are heat sensitive. This is thanks to its special coating which reduces heat. The soleplate, specially adapted to Laurastar 3D irons, is easily attached to the iron. Start by placing the point of the iron at the front of the protective soleplate, then pull the rear tab and lower the iron to fix it into the soleplate. Wait around 2 minutes for the soleplate to reach the right temperature for a gentle ironing experience.
