    No, I Don't!

    Yep... my sister irons her clothes, from time to time. So does my mother. But I don't. Wrinkle or not, I pretty much throw on my clothes and leave out the door! LOL! Lucky for me, my clothes don't wrinkle much. =p I don't iron for one reason... I suck at it! And after...

    I Hate Ironing.

    ironing my dad's clothes was one of my chores as a kid. i hated it, and still hate it to this day. such a pain in the rear. plus i'm always spilling the water, tripping over the cord, burning myself, making the creases worse instead of better. it's just a wretched exercise.

    Screw It.

    Big deal, there are some wrinkles in your clothes....so what?! If you don't iron you look still look like a normal person, and you save energy.

    Of course there are the items that require it such as blouses and jeans... But on the all, I don't tend to iron.  I wash my clothes in such a way and hang them up that they do not get creased.  Life is too short and too many clothes are worn to spend life ironing. ...

    I like to take my clothes out of the dryer, fresh with warmth, lay them out on a table and just smooth everything out with my hands before the wrinkles set it. Too lazy to iron...

    Not a Chance,

    Actually, I won't buy anything that requires ironing.  My mom irons her bedsheets and underwear.  I think maybe I'm rebelling.

    Never Need to Really

    I have ironed something only a handful of times in my life. And the times I have, I've had someone there who does iron to help me out. I know it's not hard so I'm sure I could manage if ever I had to iron something by myself. It's just I rarely see a need for it. I've always...

    I have an iron and ironing board... but I burned myself years ago and cant stand the iron now.  You can throw something in the dryer with a wet washcloth and get the wrinkles out... Its easier and smells better.  If you hang things up fresh out of the dryer...

    I Have Never

    i dont even know how to iron. if something is wrinkly i either make it a new fashion statement or i throw it in the dryer on the de-wrinkle cycle. thats why that cycle was invented. my husband is quite the opposite. he learnt how to iron while in the army. he does a great job too...

    Not Sure If I Even Own One

    Iron Settings?

    Screw that - If it can't be tossed in the dryer for a few minutes, or sprayed with wrinkle release, I'm not buying it!  Even dress clothes are ridiculous looking by the time you take a car ride. Besides, I know so many people who are held in slavery every morning in...

    Ironing my clothes would merely make my face look even more crumpled in contrast.Ironing boards, however, make very useful synth keyboard stands.

    Maybe Never Is A Strong

    I Don't Iron

    I don't iron clothes. All my clothes are the wash and wear type so I don't have to bother about ironing.

    Don't Like It

    I'd rather throw it into the dryer and deal with it. I will iron if need be but only on very rare occasions. Just not my favorite thing to do... take it to a dry cleaners instead. Oh I could buy one of those steamers. Those are a breeze!

    When I'm at school in the dorm, clothes pile up in all four corners, on the back of my chair, under my desk and bed and on the air conditioner. Ironing? Oh no. I just hang it in the communal shower and hope someone takes a steamer.

    I Got My Fill of Ironing When I Was In Cadets

    It's so pointless, at least for evrything I own it is. A waste of time and energy I say.

    What Is An Iron?

    I never ever iron, I do not own an ironing board or an iron. Sometimes I think about buying one, but no. I even contemplate taking a shirt or pants to my parents house, but instead I put it in the dryer for a few minutes on high heat, that usually works

    I Know How, I Just Don't Like Too...

    It's just tedious and doesn't make that much of a difference in the clothes anyways, hang them up and the wrinkles dissappear in a few hours. I will iron shirts/skirts once in awhile, only if I really need to wear that specific piece that day, otherwise forget it.

    I much rather wear wrinkle free fabrics.

    It's takes so much time and sweat to iron something, just for it to wrinkle soon after you walk out of the door. It makes no sense to me. Furthermore, I am very put together and not a slob at all. I just prefer to live in my wrinkle resistant garb.

    Hate It!

    I never iron my clothes. If my mother irons for me, then I'll have ironed clothes. But I don't iron my own clothes. Unless I have an interview =P

    I'm Lucky Enough To Have A Wife That Does It For Me.

    I am selective in the clothes that I buy and most purchase wrinkle free clothing. This cuts down on the amount of ironing that needs to get done and luckily for me when I do have some clothes that need ironing, I have a wife that does it for me.

    Just Too Lazy

    I'm so lazy that I go around wearing wrinkled clothes all the time rather than iron them. Even if I have to go to a formal occasion or even to church I'll go with wrinkled clothes.

    I don't own an ironing board.  You would have to pay me good money to get me to iron.  The wrinkles fall out of clothes after you have them on for a little while, or after they've been on a hanger, so why do people iron?  If I've never found it to be necessary then...

    No Thanks.

    I don't honestly have any clothes that need ironing. I'm simplistic. I'm not a suits, or a skirt/blouse wearing lady.

    I Can Stand For Hours Ironi...

    I can stand for hours ironing. I useually let it pile up, just so I can take my time with it. I put on a movie and off I go. I do like the way everything looks after it has been ironed.
