Can’t stand ironing and now I have to be reasonably smart for work I put all my shirts in at the dry cleaners.
Each to their own, but it takes me less than 30 minutes to iron five shirts for the week, so taking and collecting them from a laundrette would hardly be worth it in time saving.Posted 1 month agokiloSubscriber

Thirty minutes to iron five shirts!!! five minutes looking for the iron, ten minutes fighting an ironing board, five minutes letting it warm up, then filling it with water. Few minutes squirting water on shirts, then the joy of ironing in new creases, a few burns on me and shirts then put all the crap away. About three or four hours in total.
I could walk to any one of the four laundrettes / cleaners near me and back five times or more in thirty minutes and they wash the shirts and put them on hangers – it’s a chore like bleeding brakes, sounds great to know but somebody can do it well for not much money.Posted 1 month agoFlaperonMember
I’ve abused a floor steamer to knock creases out in the past. You may wish to do this without the detergent container attached.
Alternatively, if you stay in big hotels frequently, is to get them to do it. They typically have machines that could put a razor-crease in a railway sleeper. Ironing is usually only a couple of pounds in a typical big hotel; they don’t make their money from it.Posted 1 month ago
