Honestly, I am really bad in ironing. I guess because I did not do it while growing up. Now, I need to learn and do it right because I like my cloths to wear not wrinkly. I hate it but I need to do it, i dont have a choice. Do feel the same? Is their anyway to make it easier? help?

i like ironing my clothes myself because i think i do it better than anyone in our house besides my father. He was the one who taught me how to iron. he always want to wear his clothes neat and ironed. it's actually easy when you get the hang of it. you have to start with the collar if the clothing has one, then the shoulder part, then the bodice and last the sleeves. it's easier if you have the ironing board and practice makes perfect. good luck. =)

I did and still do my own ironing, I used to hate it since it takes a while and I really had to work hard at it to get all the wrinkles out of my clothes. I got one of those new steamers last year which had made things a lot eaiser and cut the time of ironing in half. Now I don't mind it as much, since I found a way to make it eaiser.

I don't even own an iron. We do not use an iron on our clothes. I wash them, dry them, fold them, and put them away. They do not get wrinkled because I fold them and put them away right out of the dryer. This keeps me from needing to iron them.

I don't like ironing that's the only thing that I don't enjoy doing it! Most of the work that need to be done in the house I'm fine except for ironing, thankfully I only have to do ironing once a week.

I don't like the housework like ironing. And this is why I won't buy clothes which need to iron. It's a boring housework for me and I don't like to do. I love China

That is so funny that someone actually mentions ironing. I love it. I am unfortunately the one who does the ironing in the family because my wife won't because she's a nurse that wears scrubs all the time where i have to go to the office and dress nice so unfortanutely i do all the ironing. Dangit anyway. The trick is use spray starch then iron the shirt. Another trick is this stuff called Wrinkle free and you just spray it on and wiggle your shirt wrinkle free. It kinda works but not always the best. Good luck.

I don't know how to iron. It's very difficult,at least seem to be difficult. My mother does iron, sometimes she spoiled my clothes. To give you some advice from my mother, you have to keep an eye on the clothes,and never let the iron stand for a few minutes,moving the iron around all the time.

Ironing is one of things that I cannot stand doing lol. I had to learn how to when I was younger. But then I found out I could get the wrinkles out much faster in the iron by tossing it in the dryer or hanging it in the bathroom, running the hot water and the steam from it will knock out wrinkles too. I was thinking of getting this iron I saw on one of those paid programs that is used strictly for removing wrinkles. So try the dryer thing if you have one available and see if that works out for you.
