It has recently been pointed out to me that this is insane behaviour. Is this true?!

leothelioness Wed 02-Sep-09 14:55:20

yes yabu there are so many more interesting things in life to do!

I think ironin anything that can get away with not being ironed is insane

I spetn 20 minutes looking for my iron yesterday to iron on name tapes

Sunfleurs Wed 02-Sep-09 14:56:13

YANBU, I iron everything except pants and socks.

I think you are slightly insane, but then I very rarely iron anything.

It is a reaction to my childhood when my mother was constantly fretting about the 5ft high ironing pile. grin

if you want to, then go for it! personally I weep when I have to iron anything grin

My DDs CM irons everything including socks and knickers! crazy lady!

you are totally insane.
only iron clothes that can be seen! (and that look creased)

except in the winter, it's nice to put on a vest that has just this minute been ironed.
yummy warm...

I've just done my ironing mountain (can I have a medal please??) and I can't think of anything worse than padding it out with vests!

But, like nickelbabe says, I must love my DD so much that I would put myself through the torture of ironing a toasty vest for her in the winter smile

It is totally insane grin

I don't ever iron anything for myself or DD or DS. I occasionally iron a shirt for DH (under duress!).

You are insane wink.
<<no ironing in this slatternly house>>

Lordy! Iron VESTS? Do you employ a house-full of servants that allow you this wondrous indulgence? Stick the vests into the airing cupboard/over your Rayburn/on the radiator (whatever instant source of warmth available) but don't get the iron out. Apart from anything else it knocks the life out of them.

Yup, madness. But I iron sheets so who am I too talk.

Sunfleurs you don´t iron pants?
Shame on you!

Are they creased?

GreatBallsOfFluff Wed 02-Sep-09 16:02:29

YANBU - I can't put a vest on DD without it being ironed. It's the same with pyjama's and nighties

Pikelit Wed 02-Sep-09 16:04:18

My former MIL wasn't content with ironing pants. Socks got the full treatment too.

I iron everything except for pants and socks.

I love it when I go in their drawers and everything looks clean and ironed. {saddo I know!}

No YANBU I always ironed my DCs vests. Couldn't bear the thought of them being even slightly 'crispy' against their perfect skin. Don't care if that's sad.

I don't iron pants but my MIL does.

I iron vests. If you've got the iron on, you might as well. It's nice to wear everything crease free. grin

I also iron duvet covers (although not sheets as these stretch out on the bed) as I love the feel of it when you get into that freshly made bed - yummmmm.

belgo Wed 02-Sep-09 16:09:00

Complete waste of electricity.

mummyloveslucy Wed 02-Sep-09 16:09:16

I think it's more insane not to iron anything. If you've spent time and money buying clothes, surely you want them to look their best.

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Wed 02-Sep-09 16:09:18

ooh yes fresh ironed bed linen! lovely grin

leothelioness Wed 02-Sep-09 16:10:44

I iron stuff that will show which means t-shirts, trousers, shorts etc both mine, dcs and dh shirts etc but never ever ever knickers or socks and vests and I don't iron sheets but if it makes you happy then keep ironing.
