    Default Ironing

    The household chores thread got me thinking how much I hate ironing. I would sooner watch Black Swan again than iron just one shirt.

    I know that some people find it quite therapeutic though. I will never understand this.

    What about you?

    Mr. Carny palms off all the ironing to me when we actually need to do it, which isn't often. It's... okay? I don't hate doing it. Shirts are actually very easy to iron, the only fiddly bits are the sleeves. Mercifully, all I seem to iron are smart shirts, so I tend to get them done quickly.

    I can't even bother hanging things up.

    I can't even bother folding things.

    I'm permanently wrinkled and I don't give a smurf.

    Laundry is stupid.

    I am terrible at ironing, so luckily, I don't have to do that chore since it's one of those things my wife takes care of. I do all the dishes, though.

    I iron something in the morning that I need to wear, but never do that whole mass ironing thing that some people do. Once the clothes I've washed are dry, they go in the cupboard.

    As for how I feel, I'm pretty indifferent to ironing. I mostly wear dress shirts, so I have to iron them or I'd look like I've just slept in it after a night out. Sometimes I'll wear T-Shirts out un-ironed though if I'm in a hurry.

    If I absolutely to anything ironed I put it in the dryer with a wet cloth and then hang it up the night before. It does a decent enough job where it's not a big deal.

    I literally hate ironing. It's time consuming, it's annoying and I hate it. However, I need my clothes to be smooth and presentable, especially for work as I wear a suit. Since I have to iron most of my stuff for work purposes, I end up ironing almost all my clothes.

    I don't understand ironing. Like how does ironing a shirt actually work? I just seem to permanently press creases into them.

    I'm one of those weird people who actually enjoy it.

    You're clearly doing it wrong. I'd suggest watching some vids on youtube about how to press a shirt properly. Just don't get too hung up on stuff like starching collars and cuffs at first because starch when done wrong is awful.

    I did! I have found them unhelpful. They all assume a certain level of competence so they don't go into enough detail and just say things like "Start by ironing the sleeve..." *proceeds to do something with the sleeve that may as well be witchcraft*.

    I'll iron something if it needs it, like a dress shirt or something. But aside from that it's not really a chore that we bother with.
