Ironing - I can't stand it! - Page 4

It can take me out to 45 minutes to iron a shirt, and I wear 14.5's. Although, I don't think you will find a better ironed shirt anywhere on Earth. All the pleats on my shirts are ironed for a natural drape, with no ironed lines whatsoever.
wow, how long does that take weekly? I'm guessing, 4-5 shirts/week = 3 - 3 3/4 hours..?

No. That was before the recent devaluation of the dollar vs. the euro. We've had to raise our rates since. The water for our irons comes from Switzerland, you know.
Is this for real? Does the water you use to steam have any significant effect on quality of the ironing? It seems a little over-the-top to me.

Well, I don't use shirts often, luckily (well, not I rather have a job that required me to dress better than I do now). But, when I do, yes I take a nice block of time to iron. I turn some music on, like Der Ring des Nibelungen (it does take a while to iron like 5-7 shirts, you know.) and just iron my heart out. Jon. I think Alex was being facetious, well that or he is borderline crazy...

No and Yes. The water does not come from Switzerland. However, the water does have a great effect. For proper ironing, you must use distilled water. For a gazillion reasons. And it's late. And a gazillion is higher than I can count right now, so take me word for it, please.

I do nothing on the borderline. Whole hog ... or not at all.
