I am not looking forward to next year when the Yowlet goes off to a school which has a strict uniform code that insists on an *ironed* cotton shirt rather than sensibly choosing a polo-neck polyester-cotton 'no iron' sort of shirt for their uniform. The Yowlet is going to like it even less in winter when he has to wear a tie. He*hates* things being around his neck. That is going to be a fun argument.... not.
There are a lot of Laundromats (coin operated washers and dryers) around here that provide 'fold and fluff' service. You take in your bags of dirty laundry and they wash dry and fold it for you. A lot of them also have someone on the premises who irons. Its less expensive than taking shirts to a dry cleaner to have them done.
Once upon a time I worked in a laundry where my job was to iron men's dress shirts. I was quite good at it. As each of my grandsons has got tall enough to use the iron and ironing board I've taught them the proper way to iron a shirt and then they are on their own. I haven't ironed anything in years.
Everyone does their own laundry and everyone is very good about getting thing out of the dryer and onto hangers while still warm.
One advantage of being overweight is that my clothes are large enough that the wrinkles fall out of them on the hanger. Otherwise they don't get worn a second time.
