I iron my stuff but not DH stuff. He's not bothered and does a shirt when he needs one. I hate ironing but also hate wrinkled clothes!

My friend irons everything twice - the first time is when she shakes the clothes as she puts them on the line & the second time is the shake she gives the clothes as she folds them.
I, freakishly, iron. I don't mind it as long as it doesn't turn into a massive pile that takes hours to get through. But I like everything to look neat. I iron tea towels & pillow cases as well just so my linen closet looks neat.

Yay, lots of other non ironers! I think it's a dying sport
DH does iron his stuff when he needs to. I have always worked in gyms and now I run a pool so I don't have much that needs ironing and when I do i use the dryer or get DH to do it

Nope. My dad brought me one a few years ago (Dad is ex-army, anal about ironing everything). I've never used it, hubby has though what a fool, who buys clothes you have to iron!! Hahah crazzzy.

My rule is if it needs ironing it goes to the dry cleaner

Dh is a 'suit' so at the very least, I iron 7 shirts a week.
But I'm really fussy, so it's never just 7 shirts.
I'd iron 2 - 3 baskets of clothing a week.

I used to iron almost everything (not underwear or sheets) until #4 came along... My ironing pile was always huge and I never got around to it, so something had to give.
Now I just fold almost all of the children's clothes, except for school uniforms and the odd thing that just begs to be ironed like some of DD's pretty dresses. I also fold DH's t-shirts etc that will just be worn around the house. It's made a big difference, but I do intend to go back to ironing more once I'm more on top of things.
(I still iron tea towels... I can't stand hanging them up all wrinkly! The funny thing is I don't even use tea towels, they're only there for me to wipe my hands on, yet I still find myself ironing 7+ a week.)

Maybe once or twice a week if we or DS have shirts or jeans that need done, DH wears suits everyday so all his work stuff is dry cleaned
