To iron out

To iron outHi everyone,

Summer is approaching rapidly and that means I need to iron out the details of my beach vacation before it is too late.

To iron out means to make smooth (think of what you do to your clothes with an iron). We use iron out to say resolve or clarify.

It is a separable phrasal verb so you can say “iron out the detail”s or “iron the details out“.

Let’s take another look.

The sisters had to iron out the details of their travel plan before they asked to borrow their dad’s car.

I agreed to work on Saturday but I need to iron the details out with my boss.

To iron out can also mean to resolve a disagreement.

The sisters will iron out their differences before they go home for the holiday.

I hope you can iron out any unresolved conflicts you might have!

Take care,
