I enjoy ironing! To start with a crumpled specimen and finish with a creased crisp garment is a very satisfying exercise. And on days when the sun is streaming in through the blinds, it becomes an exercise in pleasure. There is an old world charm to hear the iron ‘whistle’ as it lets out steam. Twwoooshhh!
Though I am not adept at ironing, the end result is a job well done. But, I seem to take forever and manage about 8-10 garments an hour depending on how many of them are shirts (which I am slowest with). And what most online videos do not tell you is what bothers me most – how to get that darned power cable out of my way. I may have to resort to an arrangement of pulleys and levers, but maybe there is an easier solution. And one of these days I am going to take a short course in ironing. 🙂
For starters, here is a funny guy video and here is a cute girl video of how to iron a shirt. No prizes for guessing which one I prefer!
