Do you still iron your clothing?

I usually set up the ironing board every morning to press something to wear to work. Today I burned my inner forearm on the iron reaching across for something on the counter. I didn't realize how bad the burn until a little later. In telling my co-workers they more surprised that I iron than the burn. This started the morning off with the "girls" discussing ironing vs. the clothes dryer.

Perminate Press...

Best thing invented since pants.

I only really use my Iron to press the seams and smooth wrinkles when I'm quilting.

If my clothes get wrinkly, I dump them in the dryer with a wet washcloth.

I haven't used my iron in years - ha! I wear scrubs to work and they never need ironing - THANK GOD since I hate ironing. My hubby wears jeans and sweatshirts to work and they dont' need it either.

When I worked outside the home, and in an office type setting, I always used one of those tall upright steamers. I hated ironing! But now, working from home, the kitties don't care if my clothes are wrinkly. If I go out to a session, it's usually just jeans, and a black polo shirt/sweatshirt.

I grew up with June Cleaver. If it was fabric my mother ironed it, even stuff like our bedsheets and my dad's undershirts. Much to her horror I do NOT iron. It drives her crazy

If I'm crafting/sewing/quilting I'll put it out but I'd never buy a shirt/pants I had to iron

If they fit me I would. Sometimes I dispise my long legs. I need a 36' inseam. To give you some perspective, my dad is an inch taller than me and he needs a 32' inseam.

I'm pretty small and often times it's easier to buy children's clothes. Especially shoes! My friends crack up when I go to buy a pair of cheapo sneakers. I buy them in the Children's dept. of Walmart (If I can find some that aren't Disney themed).

Nope. I don't have the time/energy. I find as long as I hang my clothes up fresh out of the dryer, they tend to stay sufficiently wrinkle-free for my liking.

Of course the sorts of clothes I wear to work are pretty casual anyway. I'm not sure if I could get away with that if I had to wear suit pants and stuff.
