I’ll just be wrinkled

I bought a shirt that is impossible to iron.  I love it, but I’m going to have to be careful with it.  It’s a navy blue cotton button down (sort of a camp shirt, but not exactly) from Ann Taylor, and I love how it fits.  I asked John to iron it before I left on Sunday ’cause I ran out of time and I wanted to travel in it.  He brought it back, mostly unwrinkled, and asked me to never ever ask him to iron that shirt again.  It was a pain in the ass.  And he’s a good ironer.  So tonight, I was ironing a different shirt (one that was easy to iron, thank goodness), and I figured I’d try to get the wrinkles out of the navy blue one again in case I want to wear it on my flight home on Friday.  Impossible!  I totally understand why John never wants to iron it again.  I don’t want to either.  Can’t get the wrinkles out.  Poor shirt.  And the iron in my hotel room SUCKS.  Leaks water everywhere, so I ended up half soaking the shirt in the process.

    Yeah, I’d rather pay for dry-cleaning. At least for this shirt. I don’t like to iron (and I’ll do an extra load of laundry to avoid it if it means I can pull something fresh out of the dryer again), but I’ll do it for things that will actually come out wrinkle-free. Thankfully, most of my clothes don’t need ironing anyway.

    Pillowcases are easy; unwrinkle-free shirts aren’t worth the trouble. And I don’t mind ironing….but not those. You need lots and lots of super heavy duty spray starch.

    Right, spray starch. It’s probably cheaper than getting that shirt dry-cleaned every time I want to wear it. 🙂
