    Ok, a funny thought hit me this morning as I was ironing my clothes for work? Does anybody iron their underwear? If so, why? LOL I mean, nobody is going to see them. Is it a neat thing? I don't get it. REally, who irons clothes anymore anyways, except for work and formal occasions. It just seemed odd to me that someone would do that.. LOL Thoughts/comments....

    I had an ex-bf that did. Just one of several indications that we were not compatible. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I don't iron period. A waste of precious time. I buy combination cotton/polyester dress shirts. As for casual shirts? Couldn't care less.

    I never iron my underwear. In fact, I stuff my underwear into a drawer without any folding, just a big wrinkly heap. Whereas my partner carefully rolls all his underwear, reminding me of our enlisted days in regulation Army barracks. I think it's a waste of time. If anyone sees my shorts at the gym, they'll be wrinkled from wearing anyway, whether they were carefully ironed before or not.

    On the other hand, I do iron, or have professionally pressed, any outerwear when going to someone's house for dinner or cocktails, or some kind of function or reception. In fact, I'll often hang my shirt in the car, wearing a T-shirt while driving, and not slip the outer shirt on until after arriving, to avoid seatbelt wrinkles.

    And if it's formal, I'll likewise not wear my dinner jacket until I arrive and step out of my car, so it's totally wrinkle free. I must admit I do disdain men who are a wrinkly disaster, when the occasion requires otherwise.

    I worked with a lady and when her mother-in-law would come to visit, the mother-in-law would iron her son's (the lady's husband) underwear. My co-worker and her husband figured it was the mother-in-law's way of trying to say that my co-worker wasnt a good enough wife. They just let good old mom iron away. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I'd suspect an insufferable neurosis if I ever caught anyone ironing underwear.

    Couldn't agree with you more. Of all the weekly chores, this is the one I dread the most. And sometimes I skip a week -- I think I "conveniently" forget. This usually is not a good idea, because I then either have to iron during the week, or do twice as much the next time I do laundry.

    As for underwear, no. But, I do sometimes iron my jeans if they're really wrinkled or creased.

    I will iron a shirt for weddings or funeurals. Other than that, anything that looks wrinkled goes back into the dryer for a tumble.

    Good grief, who would have time to iron their underwear? All my dress shirts are sent out for pressing, but I'd never do it.

    In basic training in the Air Force (US) we where turned into OCD airman. We were not only required to iron our underwear but it had to be in six inch squares, along with our brown tshirts. Also every extra scrap of string hanging off our clothes had to be removed and our hangers had to be about 1.5 inches apart exactly and no wire hangers. there is much more as well with starching and polishing and don't get me started on the beds, sigh.

    I don't go crazy. I iron my clothes for work and will steam something that's been folded if it has creases.

    While I don't do the ironing myself I do insist that everything is ironed. This includes underwear, socks, t-shirts, everything. Particularly for traveling ironed clothes take up a good bit less space. Likewise, I appreciate a nice and tidy dressing room. The last reason, especially for socks, is that it kills bacteria, especially those for athlete's foot.

    Nope, don't iron them. I don't see the point in it.

    No, would never iron my underwear.

    Always keep my work clothes and casuals ironed though.
    Not to hijack the thread, but another question is:

    Do you iron all your clothes as they come of the drying line, or do you iron each item as you need it?
