Pillow Cases....

Do you IRON them?


I Do IF they're
Really wrinkled!



No fancy laundry room!
We haven't really done anything to this room
but paint it.


Do you like
White sheets?
~OR~
Color~ed Sheets?


There....much Better!
All ironed & folded....

Smelling
Fresh
&
Clean.....

Mmmm!


My Grandma used to iron everything it seems.
She would iron my Grandpa's t-shirts (he was a farmer),
 even his handkerchiefs....
Remember those?  Not many men carry Real handkerchiefs anymore!

~I think of her when I iron my pillowcases~

What all do You iron?
or do you call it Press?

  1. Good morning Lisa! What a pretty wall display in your laundry room. When I was a little girl, one of my weekly jobs was to iron the pillowcases and my Dad's handkerchiefs. I don't iron pillowcases any more - but I do my husband's shirts. My mil irons everything, including underwear. She says they feel better when they're ironed. :)

  3. My grandmother taught me to iron. She let me iron washcloths. I guess she fired I couldn't hurt those. As much as I love ironed pillow cases, and used to always iron them, I've gotten lazy in my old age and don't iron much of anything anymore.

  4. I like what you've done with your laundry room.
    I do not iron my sheets. They usually come out of the dryer just fine.
    I do iron though... I like to send my hubs and kids out the door with crisp lines. Wrinkles are a no, no.
    Oh.. and I do call it iron, not press.
    My grandmother ironed everything.. back before all the great wrinkle free fabrics.

  5. I call it "iron" and I don't do it anymore than is necessary. So John will never have his handkerchiefs or underwear ironed. I like all manner of sheets if they are comfortable. I particularly love my white Vermont Country Store set. Did you read this week that ironing is one of those "restful" chores? Couldn't prove it by me.

  6. Oh dear I have to confess I do iron pillow cases, but not sheets. I do prefer white linen. Thank you so much for sharing. My very first visit here I will follow on my way out so I know my path back here. Perhaps you will find the time to come visit me soon and do the same. I look forward to engaging more throughout the year and beyond. Take care. Cheers SpecialK XoXo
