I do not even own an iron.
My ex once tried to teach me to iron but, being left handed, I could not do it, so did not!!
I hang clothes so that they do not need ironing.
However I recently bought some Dr Who tee shirts and they are all cotton and DO need a bit of ironing.
However, as I do not own an iron, I cannot iron them......
Having had bad arthritis since my teens,I find ironing rather difficult.I tend to buy items which need no ironing at all,and this suits me fine with living in the tropics where comfy clothes are the go all the time!! I also am one who has managed to always hang things on the line so they dry wrinkle-free!! This goes for linen, clothes, anything at all,really!!!
I certainly do still do the Ironing. I have to as there is no one else to do it for me. Being a Bloke, it takes me quite awhile to iron my Jeans and the shirt's, well, they take even longer as I love to have the creases in their correct place. Come on Ladies, offer me a Hand here.
It's a trade off. We both do stuff around the house, and sometimes if I iron he has more time to finish off something else. For example, if I get a shirt for the next day done while he puts the kids to bed we can snuggle and watch a movie together after without any boring stuff left to get in the way.
I still do lots and lots of ironing. I don't mind ironing, as I listen to the radio whilst I do it. Usually iron about the same time - about 4 p.m.
I do hang everything on hangers immediately the wash finished but most clothes benefit by a bit of an iron. Cant put the doona covers on the bed without an iron as they are cotton and if they are not ironed, they look pretty ordinary. Same as silk blouses and linen, linen really benefits from an iron (I know it creases immediately you put it on). Even cotton T shirts need an iron or they look like they have been slept in.
I donít iron very much. I have big plastic garbage bags with my cloths sorted out in: dresses, shirts, slacks, etc, & also bags for my husbands cloths. I only iron when I need something to wear out! Just about all of my cloths are cotton.
The horror! I would NEVER leave the house in unironed clothes plus I enjoy ironing and find it very satisfying. I have a Philips Steam Station which fairly scares the wrinkles out of the clothes. I love to see my other half going off to work looking smart in his crisply pressed business clothes. All clothes are folded straight off the line whether for ironing or not. I am not as bad as my mother, however, who ironed sheets, pillowcases, undies, teatowels and her cotton bras! I would never let anyone else do my ironing even though my other half has tried. My daughter's husband does all theirs - he enjoys it too. He learned in the military. One woman I read about puts her clothes on, uses a spray bottle of water to damp them, brushes herself down and goes out the door. Yuk is all I can say. My step daughter has thrown away all the clothes that needed ironing and my neighbour does not even iron her work uniform even though she has had several warnings about it. Different strokes, my dears, different strokes.
I (think) I can say that I haven't ironed once in a whole year. However, we just painted, and dust from sanding went everywhere. Shirts had to be washed and now I'm thinking I have to pull out the ironing board.
