Iron? Not me. It has been a good 15 years since I had an iron in my hand, and that was autumn in PA and I was ironing leaves.

Now my grandmother would iron EVERYTHING. Spritz 'o sizing and hankies, boxers, sheets, everything got ironed. *shudders*

I stopped ironing when they came out with the wrinkle spray. It works wonders and is great for traveling. Occasionally I do get the iron out for special occasions or emergencies, but I pretty much pick my outfits by "what doesn't need to be ironed."

National (hiccup) Drink (hiccup) Wine (hiccup) Day? Why didn't you tell me sooner? (hiccup)

I wonder if it's coincidence that National Drink Wine Day and President's Day fall on the same day.

I have to second Paula's quote here! Often something goes to the dry cleaners if I can't get the wrinkles out with washing/drying!

I'm pretty much like everyone else that has posted. No, I definitely do NOT iron. I will iron some small thing if it just needs a little "touch-up" and seems "do-able." But that is rare, very rare!

As far as our mothers and grandmothers ironing, well, I think the fabrics were different then. Not as much "wash and wear." Plus the fact that most of the ladies then did not have jobs outside the home. Now, it's kinda like-who has TIME to iron???

BTW.... I have a quick question, which has to do with ironing, and it will be obvious to you.

Does anybody really use all those buttons and settings on those LG washer and dryers?

Should you get them with the drawer on the bottom?
