    Why do you feel the need to iron any thing?
    We can take 2 dozen polo shirts and tops in our wardrobe and half a dozen pairs of jeans and trousers each.
    These easily last a month, we never find the need to wash any cloths never mind iron them.:Eeek:

    ironing?? Ironing?? Hush you mouth!
    Now go and have a lay down until you feel better.
    Rules of the road...if it needs ironing, you shouldn't be owning it!

    After filling our MH with lots of clutter I now remove more each trip, Iron and mini board went out long since. Dont like sweaty clothes though prefer to do washing as we go, only takes a few minutes to bung it in a washer and hang it on rotary dryer/ hangers, I have learnt to disregard the machines that say no need to add soap, the clothes come out smelling worse than they did when they went in. I am tempted by @jezport s washer/spinners though!

    Since becoming retired I had to let some of the staff go. The laundry staff being the first. Cook is doing well with the multi tasking as far as am aware :).

    What a silly idea, don't say such a thing again otherwise you will be banned! Good grief, ironing indeed, :getmecoat:
    Absolutely, it is the only way to go.

    I have a travel iron, its been in the van 3 years and used for 2 items only. As @Granjan says, don't like a cupboard full of stale clothes. Hang the stuff up wet it's not very creased anyway.
    Funny thing is, just doing the washing from our recent trip and shuddered at the thought of all the ironing!! I could start a new trend, crumpled of Cumbria.........:)

    There is a travel iron somewhere in the motor home - can't remember when I saw it last - perhaps we need a chuck out. I agree that it is good to embrace the crumpled look!!!!
