ironing the clothes or washing the clothes?
25 Mar 07
I prefer ironing the clothes. I always hated washing the clothes by hand and I grew up with all the blisters on my hands. I started doing my family's laundry when I was 8 years old just to help out my parents and being the eldest and all. I vowed at that time that when I have enough money, I would never do the laundry myself and will just pay people to do it for me. Funny as it seem, I still do the laundry today because I don't trust other people to wash my clothes and might destroy the fabric.

If I have a choice, I choose neither. I do wash my own clothes, but I do not do the ironing. Washing is one time, done and that's it. I feel ironing is a lot more effort and takes considerable time, especially when I have high expectations to do a good job.

I don't like doing either one actually. If I had to choose though I would say I'd rather do the laundry. I don't iron all that well and I always seem to fall behind on what needs to be done.

If i had my way I wouldnt do any cleaning around the house. But it has to be done. I do the laundry among many other stuff. I used to iron all the clothes but after having my baby and trying to work etc. I just started putting the clothes away after they are dry. Most of the creases fall out of them, if not they get ironed when needed.

Neither. But if an answer is required, then i say washing my clothes. my back aches when i do ironing and i feel like it takes forever just to iron one clothing. Another cons of ironing is when I iron clothes i feel like i am being burn because of the heat of the iron.

I would much rather do the washing, putting it out on the line and pulling it back in rather than doing the ironing, I hate ironing and I have never been any good at it!!! I actually avoid ironing as much as possible I would rather just fold things up and put them away if I can

Well,I definitely prefer washing clothes to ironing them. I do not handwash the clothes ; I simply put them into the washing machine and it does the job for me. Ironing on the other hand is a hot and dreadful job,especially ironing my hubby's shirts.

I like doing both, as long as it's not a big load. However, if it's very warm I hate ironing. Since it's just two of us, I use the washing machine only for towels, trousers and bed sheets because it consumes too much electricity and water, and it takes so much time to finish. So all the rest I handwash, but I soak the clothes for at least an hour first, then it's quite easy since most of the dirt are off.

I like ironing clothes! but it takes more time and is likely to make you more sweaty than laundry. which is just a matter of dumping clothes into the machine. unless you handwash, then it's much more arduous. I think ironing is therapeutic. i like watching all the clothes come out smooth and straight. washing makes it smell nice and clean. but ironing is more fulfilling to me.
