I finished cleaning a Brentwood house yesterday, and on the way to the bank my wife Carey called for her cel phone charger. I told her I’d be glad to bring it to her, so when I left the bank I went home to let our dog Lucy roam in the backyard for a bit while I ate lunch. I had some time to kill, so I looked at the ad proof from nFocus, and I was delighted at what Carla put together.
When I met up with Carey to give her the cel phone charger I stopped by a local bookstore to see if they had a book I’m waiting to buy, but they didn’t have it. They did have another book I’ve waiting to get as well, so I put it on hold to purchase later.
The book is by Cheryl Mendelson titled, Laundry: The Home Comforts Book of Caring for Clothes and Linens. Cheryl included a large portion of this book in her 1999 work called Home Comforts. I sat down in the bookstore to scan it because it wasn’t quite time to pick my daughter up from school.
I was drawn to a section on ironing. I’ll elaborate about ironing later, but it’s been something I’ve been thinking more about since a recent experience we had with a laundry company and a large amount of our clothes. I was impressed with how good our clothes and such looked after the company returned them. I actually ironed some things last week when we were in Atlanta, and it was a pleasant task, and my pants looked and felt better when we headed out to downtown to see Peter Pan.
I’m mainly posting to see if I can get your reflections on ironing, and why or why you don’t iron.
Looking forward to hearing from you. Happy ironing.
