An electronic laminator is another home gadget that costs money, takes up space and you only use occasionally. Instead of buying a laminator you can use an iron to laminate your plastic laminating pockets.
Put the paper you want to laminate in a laminating pocket.
Put it on a table and cover it with a towel or cotton cloth.
Iron on the towel until the pocket is sealed.
Don’t do this on a table that is sensitive to heat.
