    DH usually does all the ironing ... his, mine and the kids.

    Dh is a tradie, so his clothes dont need ironing but even if they did, no way. I dont even know where our iron is

    All DHs ironing goes to the dry cleaner.

    His work clothes don't need ironing and I tend to just iron as I want to wear it. But if dh had work clothes that needed ironing I would do it.

    I iron my DPs clothes and used to iron all his business shirts once a week and that was while I was working. just the way our chores divided up. I never touch the garden for example.

    Now he works at the gas plant, there aren't shirts to iron, but I'll still iron things if he needs it done. I only work 3 days though and he works 6 days a week, 5:30-5:00.

    I think it's whatever works for you and yours.

    Pre-kids = I'd iron shirts on a Sunday whilst he was making a roast dinner.
    Post-kids = My philosophy is hang it well and fold when getting off the line, any further attention do yourself

    Does he also expect you to make his lunch, wake him up etc?

    Sent from my GT-I9300T using BubHub
    My Dh wears workman gear too, so I'm lucky there

    I'm PT SAHM/workforce.

    When I was SAHM (things are still same now though) if Dh needs something ironed he will pick up the iron and iron it himself (jeans, tshirt).
    Now and then I'll do some ironing for myself and iron a couple of his T's at the same time.

    Yes I wrap his lunch and wake him. Only because he will eat junk food instead (pies etc) and that worries me!

    Also if he set his own alarm it would have to be that loud he would probably wake the kids and neighbors!

    I don't have to, Dh is the type if I said 'No I won't / cant' then he would work it out himself without complaints.

    My ex used to get a washing basket of clothes ironed for $7. I've seen the odd sign around offering similar.

    Tbh the fact that he so adamantly expects you to do this would **** me off more that the task itself. Start calling him Tony.

    Kind of. I'll iron his shirts but then again he quite often irons an entire basket of all our clothes, so I don't mind doing his shirts at all.

    However I point blank refused years ago to iron his work pants. I hate doing them, when I lived at home I had to iron all the work/school pants and I absolutely hate hate hate that crease down the front ha ha. So he does his own work pants!
