Meditation is one of those things that is like meditation for me.
As to ironing, ain't nobody got time for that.
Three zen students arrive at their master's place on bicycles. The master asks them why they rode bicycles.
"I ride my bicycle because it is efficient" says one. "Wonderful!" replies the master, "Your path will be smooth and easy."
"I ride my bicycle because it is good for my health" says the second. "Wonderful!" replies the master, "You will live a long and healthy life."
"I ride my bicycle to ride my bicycle" says the third. "I am your student!" declares the master.
I also love ironing. The correct time to do it is just before bedtime, as the meditative aspects of the practice are conducive to slumber.
One does need a good iron. Recently I invested in one of those floor-based thingies with a deep water reservoir. It's connected to the handpiece via a thick cord which conducts both steam and electric power for the hotplate. Temperature is dialled up at the handpiece, but steam pressure is controlled from the base.
These units provide giant blasts of superheated steam exactly when needed (via a little button on the handle's underside). The handpiece itself is much lighter than an all-in-one iron. With this tech, you can power through a dozen shirts in no time.
Ironing shirts is a skill, no question. There are many good instructionals on the interwebz. One day I would like to see if I can extend my prowess to steaming an elegant roll into recalcitrant jacket lapels.
You have the luck of mafoofan (which my computer corrects to "muffin" - probably what I should call him). In 15 years of having 8 or 9 different cleaners ironing 5-10 shirts per week, I've had one broken button and no other damage to my shirts.
Oh yes. Another good investment I made was in a "shirt tree", a kind of plastic-and-tubular-aluminium tripod which can be folded out to provide hanging space for just-ironed shirts. Also very useful for hanging out shirts fresh from the washing machine. You can move it around the room or take it out onto your balcony to maximise drying opportunities.
