  • Question of the Day 6/28/20

    Good Sunday, everyone!

    Do you ever iron your clothes?

    I really try to avoid ironing. I do own an iron, but I only use it when absolutely necessary. I find it much more to my liking to use the clothes dryer to knock wrinkles out. Now, if only it work on my wrinkles!

    We rarely have to iron.

      Nope. I make a homemade wrinkle spray: 1/4 cup fabric softener, 1/4 cup vodka, and about 2 cups water in a spray bottle. Spritz soothes when damp or dry. Wrinkle hang out and they smell nice, too

        Seriously? That works like those pricey wrinkle-relaxing sprays?

        Hmmmm, I don't use liquid fabric softener or vodka. Ya think soaking dryer sheets in gin would work? J/K, I hasten to add!

        I bought a big jug of cheap softener and a big jug of vodka (that was fun) and it lasts forever.

          Drew has some linen shirts that must be ironed to look decent. I haven't anything anymore that needs ironing.

          I actually don't mind ironing. The smell of a hot iron on fabric reminds me of pulling sun-dried clothes off a clothesline when I was a kid. A fresh and clean smell, yanno?

            I rarely iron. I try to buy fabrics and clothing that will not need ironing as I just don't take the time to do it.

              No, I check clothes in the shop to see what they're like (the scrunch test, my mum calls it) and check they don't need ironing, so I just hang them up and let them work it out themselves.

                    Practically never and only when doing so is the only method that works. That means that I've already tried the toss the item in the dryer with a damp cloth and run the dryer method and used the steamer before finally resorting to ironing. And even when ironing I'll only iron the parts that I know are going to show.

                      Rarely. I don't buy anything that is going to need to be ironed on a regular bases. I even send my husband's dress shirts (that he wears to work every day) to the Dry Cleaner to be laundered and pressed so I don't have to do it.

                        Since I've retired, most of my clothes don't need ironing. But I do still iron some of Luke's and my shirts. I'll do several at a time, so I don't usually iron more than every 2 or 3 months.

                          No ironing here. If something needs to be de-wrinkled, I hang it in the bathroom and turn on the hot water so the steam takes the wrinkles out.

                            Rarely, but I do it for our 'dress shirts'. If DH is going to go somewhere, I want him to look nice.
