    I Refuse To Iron

    While growing up my mom forced me to iron every week.  I ironed my father's work shirts and any additional shirts in the family that needed ironing.  I was always told by my mom that I didn't do a good job ironing, and yet continued to be forced to iron shirts...

    Thank God It's Over!

    I used to wear suits and silk ties to work. I had to iron my shirts, ties, and slacks at which I failed miserably. I'm a perfectionist, and if the creases weren't't just right or if I had a double crease it would freak me out. No one else seemed to notice or comment...

    Whatever But Not Ironing

    I can wash dishes, hoover, dust or whatever but I simply hate ironing. Once I am wealthy I will have my clothes ironed by some servant :)))

    Hate It Worse Than "the Naked Poet" Hates Braveheart And Mel Gibson!!

    There is no easy way for me to say this.  I hate, loathe, despise, detest, curse and abhor ironing!!  I think I loathe it as much as TheNakedPoet loathes Braveheart and Mel Gibson!!  I would gladly sit through three showings of Braveheart instead of having to iron one blouse...

    I Think I Own An Iron, I'm Not Sure...

    If an item of clothing requires ironing I don't buy it.  Over the years I have learned to hang washing in such a way so as not to permanently crease it. My friend goes home during her lunch break to catch up on her ironing.  She even irons her sheets. ...
