  • Ironing

    I need advice! I don't have time to do ironing so it all stays in a huge pile in the kitchen that is slowly getting bigger and bigger. Some of the clothes I put into the pile don't really need ironing but some of them do. How can I cut down on the amount of ironing? Do any of you use fabric conditioner - does that make the clothes significantly softer and easier to iron? Do you hang clothes up on hangers to dry? Just want to cut my ironing pile really!!
    Thanks

      fabric conditioner works well if it is a good brand. I think the best tip about reducing ironing is to put the stuff away quickly so you can't see it!!
      Shirts hung out on hangers need a lot less ironing.

        Who needs an iron!!! I just take it straight out the tumble dryer and fold it or hang it, problem solved!!!

        Anything that needs ironing, said owner of that item irons it themselves, i trained the kids young. When the boys were in the army cadets they had to iron their own uniforms, and daughter learned at guides.

              Get a big fat belly like mine - then your clothes are stretched so tight no one notices that they're not ironed

                Put it all in a black bag, take it to the charity shop, and tell eveyone you've found god and have put aside material things.

                  I know what you mean.
                  Loads of good quality fabric conditioner. try to iron them straight off the line makes them a snitch to iron.
                  Failing that addvertise for someone to do it for you. I know a lady round us does a bin linner full for £5.00. Keep saying im going to check her out. She picks it up and drops it back off too!.

                    Use fabric conditioner, hang on the line and then bung in the tumble-dryer for 5 mins when they are virtually dry. Fold or hang as soon as the dryer finishes and you won't need to iron.

                    We don't have an ironing-board and only have a travel iron as the only ironing I do is on the very odd occasion that hubby needs to wear a shirt.

                      No pleasing some people - I got told off last weekend for taking a pair of jeans out of the ironing pile and wearing them, since I didn't think they needed ironing!!

                          I hate ironing - I stand over the tumble drier waiting for it to finish and then shake it and fold it while its still warm! Have had the ironing board out once in the 3 monthes we've been in this house!

                          If I can't tumble dry it, its placed very flat over a radaitor! Although I discourage the purchase of anything that says Do Not Tumble!!!!

                              Sorry, can't help
                              Don't know what ironing is
                              I've had the same ironing board since moving in together in '93 and its only on its second cover - the first one sort of got a hole in it
