How to reduce ironing? – There are some things that never need ironing. They include: anything that says ‘do not iron’ on the care label; towels, face flannels and tea towels; underwear (unless you go in for silk camisoles and suchlike), socks and nappies; fleeces; most lycra-based sportswear, swimsuits, bikinis; velvet, chenille, seersucker, and special crinkle-effect fabrics; fitted sheets (even cotton ones will smooth out magically as soon as you put them on the bed).
Drying laundry correctly is a good way to minimize ironing. If you hang clothes outside on a warm, dry, breezy day, the wind will billow out the fabric and remove wrinkles. When drying flat, pull the garment gently into shape before drying.Tags: get organized, ironing
