    Love it! This is embarrassing but my son stopped at my house after work because he had a job interview and needed to change shirts. His new shirt needed ironed. My ironing board is always set up. He never said a word, just went upstairs and ironed his shirt. I'm guessing most moms would have at least offered to iron their son's shirt LOL. So your pie chart fits me perfectly!

    my kind of pie.

    JanRN, aren't you very happy you taught him to iron and he is not afraid to do it. Occassionally my DH shirt collars do not come out of the dryer looking like thy should. Since my ironing board has become a permanent piece of furniture in the kitchen, he does whats needed. No complaints from me.

    Not if he knows how to iron. My husband irons his shirts. Sure nothing wrong with a guy ironing.

    In my house I have a rule about ironing clothes. I wear it one time, wash & dry it. If it comes out of the dryer with a lot of wrinkles it goes into the give-away box.

    Before I started patchwork, I used to joke that the holes in my steam iron had healed over from lack of use. My husband used to joke that it was time to iron or buy some more shirts.

    I don't iron hardly anything except my quilting. Once (before I quilted) when my ironing board was in the basement with the laundry room we couldn't find my DH dress shirt. He only owns 2. I finally remembered it was downstairs on the ironing board to be ironed. We thought about it and it had been down there to be ironed for almost a year. I shook the dust out of it since he needed it in a few minutes. We don't dress up too often in my house.

    So true in my house. My dh even irons his own clothes, so the clothing wedge is probably smaller!

    If it needs ironing, I don't buy it. Irons and ironing boards have only two uses--to iron freshly ironed new fabric or quilt blocks.
