when I was living in Australia, I never iron my clothes because I was using a dryer to dry out my clothes. So it is hot enough, so I just fold them. Now, I am living in a country who don't have a dryer. So I have to iron all of my clothes to keep them neat. I think, if you are using a dryer then you don't need to iron anymore. The heat from the dryer is automatically ironed the clothes

I rarely wear ironed clothes. After the clothes are washed and dried up, I fold them neatly so after they sit in the closet, they iron themselves :). I only iron tuxedos or other clothing that require ironing. So in my case, i rarely iron clothes.

Hi.Thanks for your response.Yes,I know there are some people who wear clothes without ironed.Maybe if we fold the clothes direct with neat fold,people could not see the rumpled of clothes.

That's exactly what I was talking about: I fold them neatly and you can't tell if they're not ironed, they have no wrinkles at all :)

I am. I cannot wear unironed clothes. But only on those I use for going out and handkerchief. I make sure all mine and my husbands clothes are ironed properly. For the underwear, I ironed them not because I want them to look nice but beacuse of the dirt or germs that might stay there after washing. It is a little less of vanity but more on cleanliness the reason why I ironed the clothes.

Hi.Thanks for your response.The clothes for wear to going out home should be priority to ironing.I agree with you that we iron underwear not because took nice but it's about the healthy reason as you explained.Thanks.

I don’t normally iron my clothes. When I was still in college we have a uniform and that’s the only thing why I bought iron. It’s no problem with me if my clothes are not ironed, not a big deal.

Oh, that's the last thing I would do! Lol. Not only decreasing your confindence but also unironed clothes are too stiff and uncomfortable to wear. I got my undies ironed too! Lol. I refuse to wear clothes which are not ironed neatly. For me ironed clothes is a must, unless there is natural disaster that turns the electricity off for days :p

I wont wear clothes unless they are ironed properly. Even when travelling i carry a light press with a foldable to handle to iron out fold marks on them before wearing but i rarely press undergarments especially if they are of elastic material as heat is known to effect the properites of elasticity in fabrics.

Hi zhizho, I am very lazy and on most occassions try to buy clothes which need no ironing. But our climate is such that we feel more comfortable in cooton and it needs ironing!!! I iron parts of clothes which are visible to people hi hi. I cant imagine myself ironing bedsheets,curtains and stuff like that. I do have to iron my husband's shirts though on a regular basis. :((
