Ernest is packing... he asked me a couple questions.
"Mom, how do I fold a shirt so it won't wrinkle?" Fold it the way it was when you bought it. Like this. And look at this quick way to fold t-shirts. (Thanks Jen and C for the links.)
"Can you teach me how to iron?" I said, "Have the shirt laundered at the cleaners. They'll do a much better job!" But we practiced on a wrinkled cotton dress shirt I found in the closet. Most important instruction: Careful, don't burn yourself. (Oops, he did.) He ironed pants, too.
Ironing is definitely not big amongst teen-age boys. He says only one male boarder at Hogwarts had an iron. I rarely iron any more -- nothing needs it. I keep the iron for sewing projects. I remember my mother always having a large basket of ironing. That's what I learned on.
Do you still iron?
