Once in a while you will meet someone who loves all aspects of domestic life. Believe it or not those people do actually exist. They love doing housework and thrive on domestic chores. They might have a favorite few chores but there always seems to be one that comes out on top. I know a few of these people who love a domestic chore that I absolutely hate. These crazy people love ironing their clothes.
I can’t understand why anyone would love ironing their clothes. It seems like such a foreign idea. When it comes to ironing, I try to find every way I can to avoid it! There are lots of ways people can avoid ironing their clothes. Here are a few tips for people who hate ironing their clothes:
Buy Wrinkle Resistant Clothing
This is one of the ways many people avoid ironing their clothes – they just buy clothes that do not need ironing. I find myself using this strategy quite often. Dress clothes, tshirts, pretty much all types of clothing can be bought in wrinkle resistant fabrics and styles.
When Downey brought Wrinkle Releaser onto the laundry scene, people who were avoiding ironing their clothes rejoiced. I use Wrinkle Releaser quite often and it is a great way to get your clothes looking great without ironing.
Using steam to remove wrinkles from clothing is another way people are skipping ironing their clothes. Hang your wrinkled shirt nearby while you take a steamy shower. Many of those wrinkles will just steam away.
Have a wrinkle or two that you need to remove and you are not home close to an iron? Use a damp rag to slightly dampen the wrinkled area and the wrinkle should disappear.
Using a blow dryer to remove wrinkles is another great idea. People who want to skip ironing their clothes use the heat from a blow dryer to remove wrinkles.
I’ve used this tip a time or two! It works especially good on collars, cuffs, hems and placket. I know lots of people skip ironing their clothes and touch up shirts as they straighten their hair. Super easy!
Quick Dryer Removal
As soon as the dryer is done, remove your clothes and fold them or hang them up. This is a great way to reduce the wrinkles that you end up having to remove. People who dislike ironing their clothes have been doing this for years.
