Ironing – Time Consuming And Hot Work. Let Us Take Care Of It
Nowadays, there are so many brands of top – loading or front – loading washing machines to choose from, even dryers too….that one wonders how many people still do any hand – washing of their clothes at all ….or even know how to? The proportion of laundry detergent to water will determine how clean your wash will be, and how many rinses of water are needed. Luckily, all this is shown on the washing machine.
Well, ultimately, there is nothing like doing laundry manually to understand the effect of detergent on the various fabrics ( and on your hands too, unfortunately ). After a machine wash of the clothes, you can either transfer them to dry in a spinning dryer or a closet – type dryer, or spread them out nicely on a clothes hangers or racks to dry in the open air
And when they are dry, what next?
Some will just fold them or hang them up nicely to be worn. This works well for synthetic fabrics that do not show any creases.
However, for cotton and linen fabrics or even synthetic fabrics with higher percentages of cotton, there is not much choice but to iron the clothes. Unless you don’t mind clothes that are so creased that they are actually uncomfortable to wear ….and so untidy to look at, to say the least.
Most people can handle the washing and drying of their own or household laundry.
But when it comes to the ironing part …..it is really a mighty sweaty effort ….unless you iron in the comfort of an air-conditioned room.
Investing in a good steam iron can save a lot of time in ironing, and the result is much better than one without steam too! However, ironing is really a labour intensive, piece by piece job and no matter how good the iron or ironing tables/stands we use, it is still a very manual chore that has baffled the creativity of household appliances inventors. Unless we use those ironing presses utilised by big hotels, where things to be ironed; like bed sheets and shirts and pants, are just laid out flat and are pressed by some large, hot surface, and the creases are gone!
Thus, on a much smaller scale, ironing has to be done by yourself with your favourite brand and style of iron, matched with your desired ironing surface …..which can be a fancy ironing stand or a simple table with layers of canvas sheets.
And no robots have been invented to do the ironing, which is a job that calls for many intrinsic maneuvers in between your buttons, or alongside the many seams and zips.
If you understand what has been described above, then you should be someone who is quite into the art of ironing and is proud to wear your personally ironed clothes. And you can even recognise easily which part of someone’s blouse, skirt, shirt or pants have not been properly ironed. For the fussy ones, continue ironing your own clothes and feel proud to be doing that for your whole family too!
However, for you who are reading the above and is feeling overwhelmed or alienated by the so-called art of ironing, don’t worry ….
