If I had to iron something I would figure it out. I have used an iron once, but that was in middle school, during the sewing half of home ec. As for the ironing boards present state, my family and I have found a unique shelf.
Jeans and t-shirts rule my wardrobe so ironing never comes into play. During elementary school I had to iron my white concert shirt, well my Mom ironed it for me, but that was about it. In middle school I had to iron straps onto a drawstring bag to help me sew better. It took me a bit to figure it out, but eventually I felt heat coming out of the machine. Once that home ec class ended my ironing days were kaput.
Obviously I have some “fancy” attire, but those two outfits look presentable enough without being ironed. I’m not one for fashion so wrinkles don’t even bother me. It’s ok if others disagree with me though. I’m pretty grounded in my beliefs.
Ironing would be a nice skill to relearn. I imagine I will have to someday for my kids musical concerts, or maybe they will be fashion conscious. For now it’s a skill that sounds cool, but it’s also forgotten. Ironing isn’t a lost cause with me, but it’s not a top priority.
