Ironing - Love, Hate, Avoid?

Post  alec eiffel on Mon Nov 14, 2011 9:06 pm

Just for fun Shocked What's your stance on ironing?

I iron Dan's work shirts and things that need it if we're going out somewhere. Most of the stuff we wear doesn't need doing imo. I actually scrunch stuff up in the shop to see how it creases - if it looks bad I generally don't buy it. There are no linen trousers in my wardrobe Laughing

only iron if its needs to be ironed, I did iron 4 large pairs of curtains last week when damp Shocked almost killed me Laughing , I didn't iron them when I washed them before and thought the creases would drop out but they didn't.
My ironing board is a bit dodgy its lost one of the catches underneath and I have to be careful to balance it right, doesn't seem much point buying a new one for the amount I use it

I'm a nightmare, love to have crisply ironed clothes but hate having to iron them so always chunter while I'm doing it! Usually goes better if I have a glass of wine while I'm ironing Laughing in fact when I was pregnant it was often while I did the ironing that I had my one small glass - so could only iron once a week !!!

i actually dont mind ironing. its the amount of ironing i have i hate!!! right now i have gave up trying to keep up with it and just hang it up unironed and then organise our clothes the night before. I find the kids jeans dont need ironed as a lot of them have a ripple etc to them so not totally plain. i have a rail so i hang everything up once it comes out the dryer so not really a lot of creases in most things anyway then i just put it all away.

i actually enjoy ironing. i love washing sorting and ironing. i love taking care of my family's clothes.

what i hate is that i have to rush and do it around work.

i especially love ironing all the bedding into neat piles ready to go on beds again.

i am sad xx

people?

iron?

clothing?!

I use my iron for pressing seams, removing heat-dissolve machine embroidery film, iron on interfacing, faux-blocking acrylic knits/crochet projects or as a rather snazzy paperweight..................

but seriously, I rarely iron clothing.
