    My own theory is that if you hang most things a certain way they dont need to be ironed.

    The only things i do do are my boys school shirts.
  • I am with lemontart on this one.

    Due to arthritis in my hands, I don't iron!

    I don't buy clothes that are cotton/linen or anything like that unless it is absolutey stunning and I have to have it.

    If I have to get creases out I use a steamer because it is quicker and easier for my hands.

    I rarely rarely iron. Like, once a year.

    Really. My OH is a builder / Carpenter, so day to day his clothes require nothing more than hanging. I work in a casual job, so same for me. I'll iron shirts if they need it, of course (am not lazy, just we both generally wear t-shirts). Our sheets and bed linen don't really crease, though I've ran an iron over the duvet once or twice. Ever. Ahem.

    I hate ironing!!!!! I don't iron towels, fitted sheets, - I do iron the quilt covers and pillow cases as I think they look nicer on the bed with no creases and for some strange reason they feel nicer too. Don't iron underwear, pyjamas, nighties, socks, tea towels, fleecy items, lycra type stuff - unless it's got a fancy trim on it or something that creases then I just iron that bit. I tend to iron our things anyway on a daily basis ready for the next day (for me, hubby and daughter) only takes a few minutes then. I once tried to get into a routine of doing all my ironing on a Sunday afternoon and putting it away nicely so that I could just throw things on in the morning, but I hated spending a sunday afternoon standing for two hours ironing lol.

    Socks. That's about it I think. But I quite enjoy ironing. I sometimes steam things instead of ironing though.

    I even iron my dishcloths. :D
