Shocking, but true.

Hi, my name is Wendy and I don't iron.

Shocking, but true. It's not that I can't iron, I just can't be bothered.

Don't judge me.

That's not to say that my family goes around in wrinkled clothes all the time. I've got a trick, you see.

Get ready for it...

A spray bottle of water.

I know, you're amazed. But really, a light misting of water on your cotton clothes and a bit of a tug on the fabric and the wrinkles will pull right out. A handful of years back, I saw a commercial for a product that some company was touting that did the same thing. I just had to laugh. Why would I go out and by some chemical something-or-other to do a job that I'd been using plain water for for years? Crazy, huh? Anyway, give it a try. It takes a lot less time than ironing and it's a lot easier. Easy is good.

I don't iron either! I iron when I sew, but that's the only time. I usually just throw whatever is wrinkled in the dryer with a damp washcloth to get the wrinkles out. I'm lazy like that.

I saw you on today's WFMW post and I laughed out loud when I read the title of your post. I *hate* to iron! I'm so glad my husband doesn't wear suits to work (or church) because I'd probably fork out the money to have someone else press his stuff. I actually have friends to love to iron. It's a sickness, I'm sure :)

Oh, @Casey, I *totally* do the dryer-damp-towel thing. Works awesome :)

Tiffiny -
It IS a sickness! When I moved in to this house, one of my friends saw that my closet had a built in ironing board and she was so jealous! I offered to let her come over and iron anytime...

I'm kind of ashamed to admit that I don't know HOW to iron. Growing up, my mom always ironed anything we needed. My husband realized I couldn't iron when the first time I had to iron a shirt, I burned the heck out of it. He doesn't ask me anymore. I use the water bottle/throw it in the dryer for a couple of minutes technique and also the Downey Wrinkle Reducer spray too.
