So, I have lived in USA for 13 years and I still iron much to the amazement of my unironed American friends.
When my family visit they cannot believe that I do not iron the bedding, t-shirts, shorts and boxers and tell me "standards are dropping!"
My local friends laugh at me and say "use the dryer for goodness sakes you're in America."
I feel that I fall in between the two ...just like a slice of ham on a butty.
I iron shirts and pants and pillow cases..is there anyone else out there who still irons the English way?
I have to admit that when I speak to my sister in England and she is moaning about the stack of ironing that she has to plough through I really do see & understand the American way. It can be considered a waste of time but there is something that feels good about the smell and the satisfaction of looking at a pile of freshly ironed laundry....too bad it takes forever to do!
