I have been very busy doing a lot of other things at home other than ironing. Now, the clothes that are needed to be ironed are piling high. Would you pay someone to iron them or you would just fold them away and store them in the cupboard until it's time to wear, then you would iron them?

The best thing I did years ago was get rid of my ironing pile and just hang everything un-ironed in the wardrobes until they need to be worn. I hated having clothes lying around everywhere and then spending hours ironing. All my family iron their own clothes now they are older, including my partner and it is great. I would never go back to the old method. As for paying someone, no way. I would prefer to spend the money on hiring a cleaner as I hate housework too!!

I iron my clothes by myself when its neeeded because we used the fabric softener to lessen the wrinkles on the clothes and I fold them in a nice way and keep in the cabinet.Important clothes only i usually iron the uniforms and the clothes when we go out.

Thank you for the information. I'll have to scout around for a fabric softener that can lessen the wrinkles and to just fold the clothes away... :

I won't pay for someone to iron the clothes. I would just iron the clothes when we need them. Maybe what you can do to relieve you from ironing too many clothes is to just hang the clothes after you have dried them. This way, there won't be too many wrinkles and you won't have too much difficult time removing them.

Well, I can't afford to outsource my ironing, but I can see how you might need to with a family and everything. You are busy. I used to just iron something when I needed it. Now, I have one day set aside to iron for as long as I need. I kind of liked my other way though - just to iron it when I needed it.
