  • I have never ironed...I don't own one. So I am assuming that is a skill I will not be teaching my children. I love the wrinkle remover spray!

  • Freshman year in high school. He was headed to his first high school dance and needed his pants ironed. He thought I'd do it ... WRONG!

  • My mom taught me when I was ten or eleven; I wonder if I'll ever teach it myself, since I hardly ever iron.

  • I didn't teach it. It's something they picked up on their own and asked questions about. I do very little ironing except for sewing projects I have.

  • I guess it's something I never thought to teach it. I don't believe in ironing. Dress shirts go to the cleaners and get ironed there.

  • We never iron, when they ask for something ironed.. that will be the day I teach them! Its pretty self explanatory though!
