An iron is an electric household appliance for straightening textiles. Nowadays, most irons are steam irons, i.e. they emit steam at the sole plate to facilitate the ironing process. The alternating electric and magnetic fields at the fundamental frequency of 50 Hz resp. 60 Hz are caused by the heating process of the sole plate and the generation of steam.
