I know this is a boring topic, but I want to share my boredom while ironing, I want to know do any men iron... Why because we are women do we have to iron..
Just single men, tis the only reason for getting married !
I have to even if I don't want to. Therefore created a hub:
Brenda, I promise you in a few years time, they would have invented a Robot that can Iron for you while you sit down and relax.
I have been here for 2 months and only just worked out how to start a topic off....... poor me, but I do object to ironing, I hate it. I used to pay a lady to come in and do it for me, but she moved away, now I have this enormous basket to face, it is not fair!!
I hate ironing, when I iron there are brown imprints of the iron on the clothes that don't come off, and the creases are more and ironed in. Here in China I have an ayi to iron. In Africa I had a maid or my husband, he learnt how in the military. In NZ I smoothed the clothes by hand when I took them off the wash line.
Yes it is beneath us isn't..... I am going to get him to do it when he comes in...... I aint doing it... does that person do all your housework, is it nice living in China?
p.s. Men do come in handy for some things, I have to admit..
Ironing? what is that?
I choose clothes that don't need ironing. I haven't ironed in years. That is one good thing about living alone
Yes, the ayi does all the housework. The only time in my life I had to do housework was my 5 years in NZ!
that is not fair, are you rich, or just damn clever..... It is such a horrible thing to have to do, any kind housework, do you even get away without having to cook
Well done you!!!!! So will mine wait for the shock when he gets in. I will probably have to teach him how to do it.....
We have quite a bit of ironing, but OH does it all. He even starches court collars to a fare-thee-well (-:
My mother irons all sorts of unnecessary things, in my view - sheets, duvet covers, pillow cases and tea-towels. But my Granny, her mother, ironed socks, T-shirts, and pants.
No I cook, I love cooking, just hate washing dishes lol. Am not rich, am poor as. It's one of the advantages of the expat lifestyle. I grew up on a farm with maids and gardeners, so never learnt how. Cleaned an oven for the first time in NZ lol and never ever washed a window.
It's not too bad, I have to say, as I survey my kitchen stacked with dirty dishes waiting for the ayi tomorrow.
what does ayi stand for =slave, put her on the next plane to Ireland.... why do I presume it is a she, just because she does housework?????
I enjoy ironing clothes that are easy to get the creases out of...it's such a mindless task, it's kind of like therapy!
Sometimes you can bang the iron down, and pretend it is somebody you are a bit angry with, then when folding clothes, be kinda rough with them, get all the aggression out, ya know what I mean.... still not heard from any male ironers yet...
Cant stand ironing, hate ironing, wont iron, ironing sucks, I through my iron and ironing board out 10 years ago. I told hubbie if he wants his stuff ironed he would have to hire someone.
I take my clothes out of the dryer and hang them immediately sfter they are done.
Did I mention I hate ironing?
No ironing. Wrinkle-free clothing. I live alone, and house-work in general is not an issue.
Ayi is just the Chinese for maid. Not slave as I do pay her well. She gets all the same holidays I do every year, all paid, all three months worth. Did I mention before that if I add up all my holidays it comes to three months?
I iron my own clothes (gotta look crisp), but the boys and man I live with can iron their own things.
Most of the time, they don't! Actually, the boys don't even like to change their sheets (gross).
should be able to get some help from your fans.........
you could post us a picture of you ironing B.C.
I can't because in all honesty I have never ironed ever, jeeez do I look like a woman ?
If it needs ironing, 5 minutes in the dryer works for me, hate ironing, cooking, dishes, all the things mom taught me to do well. I am on strike this week as a matter of fact.
Ironing is done by the laundry. regular clothes just get washed and folded.
fortunerep......... i always shrink things in the dryer
I hate Ironing, but my dad always use to do the family's ironing
It's not a boring topic, just yesterday l told my girlfriend
how much l hate ironing, My children uniforms. Six white tops
and four skirts every sunday.....so you're not alone...
I don't like ironing, but love the results... It is worth the trouble for a few items. The rest I just put in the dryer for a few minutes, and shake out.
I like the way a steam iron works. Ironing can be done without ever taking the garment off the hanger.
yep once i get this back log out of the way, I will keep on top of it, or my husband will, he is ironing now yipeeeee.....
I buy outfits that look put together without needing to be ironed. I simply wash most of my skirts, dresses, in pants in a cold cycle and hang to dry. Shaking pants and dresses against a wall gets out most of the wrinkles. Many of us gals do not iron .
Every time I get the iron and ironing board out I think how are we still using these in this century..it does not seem to get easier. A robot would be nice
It just goes to show the prolific fear people used to have of robots and computers taking over human tasks never came to pass. Personally I love to do my own shopping and laundry, and I would never want to have a robot do it for me!
I like the others seldon iron, if ever, I do own an iron, as an ornament, I put my clothes in a dryer, and then while still hot fold them.
My good clothes are all made from stuff that doesn't need ironing, I put some fabric softener in the water, and all the Towels etc. come out fluffy no need to iron, same with tee towels.
Really good jersey I handwash and they dry with out wrinkles.
But that being said I went to my friends house and she ws ironing knickers, bras the whole lot.
Just making work is how I figure it.
How are you Brenda?.
You can't beat wearing a freshly ironed shirt... so I enjoy doing my own ironing. Guess it's all about how you are brought up.... & how much you think other people should run around after you..
Always iron our clothes...they look crisp, fresh and top notch. And yes, I happen to like ironing....
I don't mind ironing, but then again I generally wear jeans and a t-shirt that don't need ironing (hangers work wonders!) and so most of my ironing is just quilting fabric. Of what does need ironed, my ex-Navy significant other does it all, he's used to being neat and orderly and prefers that it get done right .
When I was still working, I do ironing once a week. I am a full time mom for two years now and I barely remember the last time I did that thing.
lots of help and advice here, I am taking it all in....
I only iron if I'm going somewhere that requires it in clothes that require it. I hate it because I'm a left-handed ironer, and there's the whole cord situation. (I know there are left-handed irons, but I've never been bothered looking for one.) The other thing is I'm a perfectionist, but that doesn't go well with also being a person who really doesn't want to burn my fingers. It just makes for a tension-filled experience, always watching out not to put the hot iron on the wandering cord.
I have seen on here on someones hub an iron with no cord, it is going to change my life, check it out guidebaba, wrote a hub all about ironing...
I happen to enjoy ironing. I wouldn't wear something that wasn't ironed. I may have wild and messy hair but my clothes don't match ...
For ages I've always thought, "I'm going to get either a cordless iron or one for left-handed people." Instead, I've had a total of two irons over the course of my adult life. They're not expensive. I don't know why I just don't buy one that's easier. I guess I just don't go down the aisles where irons are sold - maybe...
get yourself down that isle Lisa change your life, be liberated............. or order one on line.....
I think I have some deep, psychological, thing holding me back from buying a new iron. I shop up a storm online and off for all kinds of other things. I seem to be developing a similar kind of "issue" with buying a new hair-dryer. Mine went, and I just adjusted to not having one. It's been years now. Maybe I should keep your word, "liberating", in mind. I think that would make buying an iron (and a hair-dryer) seem more urgent. (Now, curling irons I'll buy even when I don't need them.)
well since we women end up doing the horrible jobs, anything we buy to make the jobs easier for ourselves is liberating...
When my son (now grown) was eleven he started to like the idea of getting up really early for school, ironing his clothes, and (I guess) kind of feeling grown up and "responsible". It was his idea, and not mine; so I let him iron his shirt and pants each day. He really seemed to enjoy it. "Strange," I thought. His ironing phase ended once he got to high school, but to this day he's still more likely to iron than his younger brother or sister are.
