Iron out the wrinkles
December 5, 2018 10:37pm CST
In our hot climate cotton and linen are best suited for the weather. Unless of course, your work environment is air-conditioned. That makes for a lot of ironing.Lightweight and steam irons are good for clothes washed at home. However in case of cotton clothes we starch them after a couple of washes.And that's when we need to rely on the neighbourhood ironing man. More often than not he has a wooden table covered with a thick cloth or blanket under a tree or in a corner of some apartment complex.They come around in the morning collecting clothes from different people and deliver them back in the evening. And an iron like the one in the picture. Red hot charcoal is put inside and the heavy weight makes sure the wrinkles are smoothened out.

Wow very neat that looks so antique to me. It's so amazing to hear how people do things in other countries. I refuse to buy any clothes that have to be ironed as I hate doing it so much. I just wash my clothes throw them in the washer and dryer add a dryer softener sheet and no need to iron.
