I don't do ironing lol! I hate it and seem to make more creases than I get out! I will iron if it's a nice night out and the top really needs it but other than that my iron and board haven't been seen in years! Lol

We just iron when we need it (each morning)! Otherwise it just ends up creased again. I've never understood ironing in bulk. I hate creases though so do iron anything that has even a slight crease.

I could not be bothered/don't have time to iron clothes for the day each morning! Do it in bulk here, usually of an evening so the kids aren't around and I can watch what I like on the TV. I don't actually mind ironing, it's preferable to most other household chores!
The girls do my ironing. K mostly or she doesn't get her pocket money. G when she's not working and helping out

I don't iron. H does his shirts and ill do an odd skirt/top if it needs it but that's it. I actually don't mind doing it. I used to do my mums as a teenager in front if the tv, but I don't have time now.
I hare ironing but do it in bulk about twice a week.

I pretty much do it as I go... But I am a bit OCD when it comes to clutter!

I don;t iron anything. H irons his and L's shirts and that is it.

Not sure of the last time I ironed anything and apart from the wedding I don't know the last time anyone in the house used an iron. At least a year ago. Not sure whether I'm appalled or delighted!

I just say I am a careful drier and folder counter...

There are work clothes I look at and never buy because I know if they need ironing they won't get worn (a second time)

I don't do ironing if I can help it.
I hang things up, and hope the creases fall out. If they don't, I iron as I need them.

Exactly what AK said. Life is too short!

I pay someone ekse to do it. I'm rubbish at ironing!

I iron everything, and do a load atm most mornings while i've been on ML. The rule is ATM unless the previous load of washing has been ironed and put away, the next doesn't go in, so it never get unmanageable. However, don't know how that'll work when i'm back at work.. Ha! I have saved the number of the local ironing lady!
I can't bear clothes with creases!

I'm a shake and fold person. Luke starting school has forced me iron a bit more than I'd like.
I like winter because lots of my knit wear doesn't need ironing!

I hang stuff in wardrobes when it's dry, and iron it (actually get H to iron it when he does his work shirts!) as needed. H usually does the kids' school shirts on a Sunday for the week, so I just chuck my work stuff at him as well. He rarely complains. I hate ironing.

I have not done any in years, very lucky in that our Nanny does ours.
This is definately one of the perks of living abroad lol
