I have my parents to thank for this post! When I was in High School, ironing shirts was one of the paid jobs that I could do at home. Although it took some time, it was one of the few jobs I could do in front of the tv. I would pop in a movie, iron all of my Dad’s shirts, and get paid to do it!
Now, having a husband who wears dress shirts at least 6 out of 7 days a week, this skill comes in very handy. Take the time to learn how to iron a shirt correctly and you can save tons of money. You will save on the dry cleaning bill, and have an excuse to watch or rewatch your favorite shows on Netflix!
