It doesn't matter if you are a wife, mother, working woman, grandmother, or the occasional man that drops by here (Hi hubby!! Love ya!), time is short, right?
I don't despise ironing as much as some, but I certainly don't love it as much as others (my mom). It just seems to be a huge time waster to me. Don't get me wrong, I'll do it when I need to, and I won't complain, but there are certain clothing items that I find are unworthy of that time. Polos are definitely on that list.
Since hubby has to wear polos on a regular basis for work, I've had to create a short-cut plan for them.
When polos (or even some casual button-up shirts) come out of the laundry basket, I pull them out and hang them in the bathroom. Since I have inevitably left them in the basket too long, I usually need to give them a good spritz with the spray bottle.
Once the wrinkles have hung out, here's my secret weapon:
Yep, I admit it. I have used my hair straightener on more than one occasion to straighten out a wiley-otis collar on many shirts. It works perfectly! I don't have to lug out the ironing board or the iron. I've even been known to put on a skirt only to realize the hem is crinkled. Turn on the straightener and iron it out without even having to take it off.
