Ironing can be avoided sometimes.


Here is a simple idea to avoid ironing the school dresses (uniforms) and shirts. Hang them directly onto coat hangers. The sun and wind irons out the creases for you while they flap around on the clothes line.  


No ironing required; providing someone takes them off the line neatly and hangs them straight into the correct wardrobes.

If the boys shirts are crumbled I will obviously iron them; however the hanging in the sun and wind does a great job too. Besides, if you have boys like mine, they leave the house of a morning in nice clean white shirts and come back FILTHY dirty. (Sometimes I wonder why I bother).
