    Just got back from dinner with my co-workers and we were discussing morning routines.

    So I explained that I iron my clothes after I take a shower and you would have thought somebody died.

    They found it amazing that I ironed everyday, they claimed they didn't iron ever. Some of them just hang their stuff up, some use the shower steam.

    Then one dude asked me, "Like do you iron jeans and T-shirts" - I said uhm, yea?????? He couldn't believe it

    So I am wondering if this is a #CUlturalDifferences thing because I was the only black person in the group.

    I assumed everyone irons everyday

    I only iron things that require it.

    If I hang up my nicer t-shirts or polos after I wash them, odds are they won't need to be ironed. I sometimes buy the Downy wrinkle release spray and that'll do the trick for minor wrinkles. 

    I don't iron jeans so no help there. The only time I regularly iron things are dress shirts and pants.

    I didn't appreciate having a dryer until it broke. I iron everything except undershirts.

    Unless my clothes stay in the dryer too long, they usually don't end up wrinkled. Most new dryers have a "no wrinkle" option, too.

    Yes. And I have a press iron so it's much faster and more efficient than hand irons. I'll never go back

    $150 to $250 bro. Get the black one with the digital lcd for like $250 though. They last about 10 yrs or so before the heating element stops getting hot. Once you make that switch and see how crispy you can get and much faster, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. I even take it with me when I travel the rarity I do travel by car. Well, I used to when I had a Grand Prix (trunk space).
