I haven't done this for many years, in fact I do not even own an iron.

Even if I did, much as I love the smell of the ironed pillow cases, it is not something I would do.

No,I iron as little as possible these days!!! However,when I was a child and wanted to earn some extra pocket money by doing the ironing,I would always do the pillowcases!!! Oooooh! How lovely they were to sleep on!!!!
Nope. No time for that.
Nope, but luckily mine are not wrinkled after wash anyways. I would iron a table cloth sometimes, but not pillow covers or bedsheets. Plus, I do not like ironing .

Noooo, life is far too short.

Your Funny!
Nope, haven't ironed in so long! Normally, I dry the sheets under the sun and that seems to straighten them out enough :)
I used to iron sheets and pillowslips, a long , long, long time ago.

Although I think they feel so much nicer ironed I don't do it anymore. As I climbed up the corporate ladder there was less and less time for such luxuries.

My husband is retired now and he does the washing and ironing. I would not expect him to iron anything that was not absolutley necessary.

I like the home to be cared for, the ironing done but there are higher priorities in life and I have realised that more as I have aged.
No, i don't.
No, absolutely not! What a ridiculous thing to do! I've never understood why anyone would waste their time ironing things that don't need ironing.....
Nope. But I'm sure it would be lovely if someone else did.
No. I can think of many other things to spend that time doing.
No - I have never done this

I'm 68 now; ironed everything when growing up; tea towels, towels, all undergarments etc and of course, bed linen. Crisp white (was there any other colour!?) and soooo smooth. Stopped all that nonsense once married - coming up 50 years - the ironing board comes out for craft ironing nowadays(very rarely and only when necessary!) - clothes? shake 'em up straight from the washing machine (don't use high speed spin cycles - certainly don't have a dryer at home) and hang 'em up!!! Cotton polyester has such a lot to answer for!
Sheets, no, the Sun & Wind do that for me with them!

Pillow Slips, most definitely & with spray starch, as well. Mine are 'pressed' not ironed, as I've an Elna Press! Pillowcases so simple to do, & they come out smelling beautifully, & very neat & tidy in their razor sharp folds!
not any more used to iron pillow cases, underwear
almost everything, this days hardly ever iron.
I have to because I buy all 100% cotton linen for the bed. If I don't iron the doona covers and the pillow slips, they look terrible - no matter how pretty or colourful the linen is.
Lol. No, never.
Nope, never iron my clothes.
I would rather jam my fingers in the door.
As long as you hang clothes neatly on the line, and use hangers for shirts, and fold carefully when taking clothes off the line, there is no need for ironing, even 100% cotton!
What is an iron?

No. I remember Mum ironing sheets, pillow cases and everything else when i was a child. I seem to remember her dampening things using a bottle with holes in the special lid- no steam iron. I think she used to roll some things up and pop them in the fridge for a short time before ironing, but maybe I dreamed that up, the late fifties and the sixties are such a long time ago.
No. If I fold them straight off the line they wont need it.
by Gia
No but I wouldn't complain if someone else did them!
Obviously you have all forgotten how LOVELY ironed sheets and pillowcases feel! mmmm
I almost always do it..sometimes I only iron the top part of the top sheet though if in a rush.
I always iron pillow cases, but not sheets. I also iron tea towels and shirts (not t shirts). I don't mind ironing, so I guess I'm the odd one out!
Absolutely not!
by Vee
No have never ironed my pillowcase and sheets, i only ever use my iron once or twice a year
Absolutely not!! How stupid. Who would do this? Obviously someone who needs to get a life!!!
No, lluxi, that's what was always done, by convention. People were proud of their ironed items. Uniforms HAD to be starched & ironed. There's nothing worse than seeing someone in crushed clothes, especially a man in a shirt. It means just plain laziness, not to iron clothes that NEED to be ironed.

These days there're are materials of which clothes are made that don't need ironing. That's good!

I've owned an Elna Press since 1974, so all our clothes were pressed. I will NOT leave the house in unpressed clothes! It would make me feel 'grubby'. This my Mother taught me: 'you never know who you might meet'. And it's true!

I do press pillow slips, but not sheets, or underclothes. Used to iron tea towels, but stopped when kids' were born, as no time to do so. Hankies must be starched, & pressed.

It's all about your upbringing, really.

I have to, absolutely have to, iron the pillowcases - particularly if someone is staying overnight or whatever, else it might look like someone else has slept in the bed and I haven't changed the linen.
by fran.
No not really.
You've got to be kidding! The pillow cases iron them selves in the cupboard. By the time I take out the bottom pillowcase, the top ones have ironed it!
I only ironed on demand! Sorry, I do iron my table napkins, but not my tablecloths now, as we only use placemats but besides those, just my cotton dress when I'm going out. Not my stay home dresses though. They are long cotton patterned ones, & don't need ironing.
