Do you iron your dh/dp's work clothes. DH EXPECTS me to do it and will not budge on the idea. It's apparently MY job.
I have to admit i find it really unfair that he expects this of me...they're NOT my clothes!!!
Oh and i HATE ironing!!

I don't iron his clothes. He's never asked me too and I've never offered!! Good luck!!

Yeah I left my lazy *** husband. Good luck Hun :-)

No, we don't own an iron and even if we did, he has arms.

No. Absolutely not expected, nor offered. If I am ironing I might do his tshirts but definitely not his work shirts, never ever.
DH irons all his own work shirts. He's a big boy and can do it.
What will happen if you just don't iron his stuff?

No he's a tradie so doesn't need them ironed.
My Dad however used to wear a suit to work everyday and would iron his own clothes and also our school clothes. Mum never did it.
Does he also expect you to make his lunch, wake him up etc?

Nup, Too many years in the army made him a little OCD about ironing.
I will only do it if he is running late and he promises not to complain I did it wrong.

No, he probably wouldn't let me because he wouldn't trust me to do it properly.
We have a cleaner and she also very kindly does our ironing. I know that we're lucky and we can afford it, but the way I see it is that if I was expected to do the cleaning and cooking, it would take me away from my job of parenting DD. I spend a huge amount of time teaching her things, playing games taking her out etc (as I'm sure most SAHP's do). I feel that DD needs to be my focus or I'm not being the best parent I can be. I know this approach wouldn't be practical for everyone, but it works for us.

I don't iron. Ever. If I can't wash it and wear it, then I'm not buying it lol
DH irons his own work shirts and our cleaner does school uniforms or anything else if i ask and if she has some time at the end of her day, but otherwise no, no ironing here.

Nope - that's what dry cleaners are for!
