This can be a spin off of the spin off!

So do you iron your kids' clothes?

I dont even iron my own clothing. The last time the iron was even plugged in was about 9 years ago when I made a dress and wanted to iron out the wrinkles.

I try not to buy things that need ironing. Sometimes she has sundresses that look like they could use an iron but I just pull them out of the drier ASAP and hang them up. Good enough.

I only have an iron for embroidery transfers

I don't buy anything for them that requires ironing...typically means the thing is worn once in it's existence

Grrr. Grumble, grumble, grumble....

That means yes. Well, DD has decided this year that nothing but dresses will do. I think over the summer we sometimes got her into shorts, but she turned five and girly and there's nothing we can do about it. Anyway, she has a couple of favorite dresses that are a bit fancy, with a sash that ties in the back.... and they really need to be ironed. So every couple of months or so, I drag out the iron and do her dresses. When she sees them back in her closet, she's all and it makes me feel guilty that I didn't just do it earlier.

Now it's wintertime and her long-sleeved dresses don't need to be ironed, so I should be all set until summertime.

Now if only I could throw away all of DH's work shirts.

Exactly. My idea of ironing is to toss something in the dryer for ten minutes.

No way. I do toss in a damp towel and dry them on the anti-crease cycle. That's about the extent of that.

DH does, however, iron his own work clothes.

DD1 has a few shirts with appliques that come out of the dryer all scrunched up and henceforth need to be hit with a little heat and pressure from the iron to flatten them out. Otherwise, no.

Iron my children's clothes? Um... nope. Never have done it. Heck, I don't even iron my OWN clothes!

I've recently started using my iron again...for quilting! Never for clothes!
post #14 of 121
Uhm...no.
post #15 of 121
No. I only own an iron so we can put autumn leaves between wax paper. I bought it last October.

NO!! LOL I rarely use the iron....my hubby complains that I never iron his shirts...if he wants it that bad he can do it
If we are going to a wedding or something fancy then yeah I will pull it out to touch up all the clothes.

I taught my 13 yo to iron his own shirts when he was 10 and into dress shirts.

And that.

Had a houseguest a week or so ago who needed the iron... was quite the scavenger hunt to find it and the board...

I do! Not everything of course, but if it needs it. But I like to iron.
