    lol I hate ironing but do iron everything apart from smalls!

    My old dog now has to wear a coat when out cause of her arthritis and I iron her coats when I have washed them X)

    nooooo! I don't iron anything that I don't have to!! I only iron kids PJ if they are stopping at MIL.

    yes I iron the kids PJs but never bother with my own.;)

    lol did laugh at that Shelly!! My son goes straight from school on a Friday to my parents for the night - and when I pick him up on the Saturday my mum hands me a bag of his freshly washed and ironed uniform!!

    Now my boy is older he isnt really into wearing his pyjamas now - its more just boxers he sleeps in - but when I change his bed, tell him to get in to his pj's so everything is cosy!

    So do i !.......my hubby says whats the point as it gets creased anyway !!........but hey ho it looks nice before we get in !!

    its soo wrong to iron pj's

    when i first moved in with my OH he expected me to iron his socks ! i dont even iron pjs lol never mind his socks

    I don't have children, but I love ironed PJs.
    The feeling of freshly washed and ironed bed linen combined with the feeling of freshly washed and ironed PJs is just so nice after a long hot shower.
    If it's a bad day then the sheets will be just be dried on the aga which due to the heat gets rid of lots of the creases but ironed pillow cases and PJs are a must.
    Sod the pants and socks though, don't have the time nor patience for that.

    ,


    yeh, for us adults i agree, but kids no,,,,,,,,,they look so much better all clean and nice clean,ironed pjs

    I like everything ironed, precise and smart. Feels good to get in to bed with clean and fresh ironed bedding.

    Wrong to iron them when the kids are wearing them

    I better not let my OH read this thread. lol I am terrible I iron before wearing. My OH does his own ironing and sometimes the little uns too! BUT I do work in a very demanding job!

    what's an iron? X)

    used to...but now i got 3 kiddies i dont bother!

    Is that because you have an ironer as well as a cleaner and a gardener MB?

    No , don't mean it. I have an ironer as well - my hubby.

    Back in the day, you would need to iron everything because of the state of laundrying and fabrics but ... honestly ... I have to say that if you choose the correct wash cycle, have the right wash powder/liquid and fabric conditioner , then hang up to dry on coat hangers, then the ioning is pretty much narrowed to denim and linen, with a quick once over for the rest but NOT PJs.

    Ironing PJs thus is only necessary if they are denim!!

    The main thing with bed linen is to get them out in the sun and air. I have never ironed a sheet in my life and neither did any of my ancestors!

    Hubby irons his clothes and the kids. He would gladly iron mine too if i asked him to.

    lol, dry it on the radiators or airer.... if it comes in creased, stick it in the dryer with a wet face cloth for 10 mins..... whip it out warm and hang it up, sorted!!!

    dmh, put it the other way, you're just lazy (joking :-)

    I only iron smart shirts. Everything else gets smoothed and folded into a pile when it is removed from the washer, left for about an hour and then hung up to dry most things are completely wrinkle free (depending on the fabric). I don't feel lazy, as my boss always says work smarter not harder. It is also much more environmentally friendly as it does not require electricity! I just don't know where anyone finds the time to iron everything.

    Maybe this is where I'm going wrong with my time then....I only just stopped ironing towels earlier this year...the embarrassing thing is I iron pretty much everything except underwear.

    I'm told one of my husband's friends irons his socks

    i dont iron anything oO goes straight off the airer or line straight into the drawers or wardrobe

    might have to iron the odd shirt or jeans but if you hang stuff out right you never need to do it

    its not right or wrong either way....preference

    if summit looks a bit creased i do iron it the night before we need it thou

    I iron everything except pants and socks

    I iron before i wear too.

    My sis doesn't even own an iron any longer,she does as some others here,she hangs stuff up,the odd thing that's really bad she gives to me to iron but that is very rare.

    Each to their own but i can't undestand why anyone would stand for an hour or two ironing.

    We last ironed about a month ago.

    I don't iron anything - OH does it all lol. But wouldn't ever iron pjs or bed linen or underwear. Life's too short. My pal's mum used to iron everything inc towels oO

    Totally agree (_;)

    lolz @ chesso. i had a ironer but was hassle....now i do it as i go. i quite enjoy it when using a steam generator iron!!....but not to the point of doing linen or pyjama...bleurgh!


    i stick everything into tumble dryer...so it always needs an iron...plus MiL is iron police, so if we going there gotta make sure wearing pristenely ironed clothes!

    woop woop shelly.... slummy mummy all the way!
