I Hate Ironing

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 102 People

    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 :)))

    Ironing

    Ironing is one thing I really dislike doing and I'm so not good at it.  Give me anything but to iron.  When I buy something, I read the label cause I want to avoid ironing.  I hate to use the iron and I got myself a steamer instead, it is much...

    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...

    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. ...
