I do it all and I hate it >:o( Problem is that OH never ironed. He is very happy to wander round looking like a wrinkled heap. He has never asked me to iron for him to be fair apart from once asking me to iron a shirt for him for a wedding. Even his work shirts he takes straight out of the washing machine (picture him waiting for it to finish so he can pounce on them :o0 ) and hangs them up wet. I do his jeans and t-shirts for him because I hate them to be wrinked. When I first moved in he once did HIS washing and left mine - he didn't do that again.

O-O

I do it all. It's my absolute favourite household job, I iron everything, from sheets to clothes to towels. Love doing it.

Neither of us irons. Anything. Ever. We don't own an iron.

It's so sad, isn't it! Now, it's the ONLY household job I happily do, hence the reason we're getting a cleaner. But I do love ironing, I think it's because my mum loves it too, I find its results based and I love seeing the nice tidy stacks of clothes etc.
