You may think that ironing a shirt is the most boring thing conceivable. Well, you'd be right. But I've always wanted to know how to do it properly. I'm unnecessarily afeared of burning my shirts. When I worked at the New York Shakespeare Festival I would try to get this wardrobe supervisor to show me how to iron a shirt and she would always say "I have two older brothers, I know what you're trying to do -- get me to iron your shirt." But that isn't what I was trying to do. Really! She never showed me how to properly iron a shirt.
Anyway, here is a video of shirt ironing. Enjoy.
