Which Do You Hate More: Ironing Or Washing Up?

Thu Jan 26, 2006 5:57 am

No I don't have a dishwasher or a butler! And I hate these two chores. I think Ironing is worse. Do you iron all your stuff in one go or just when you need to wear something like me?

i hate them both. i dont bother to iron, i toss all my clothing into the washer (colours mixed in with the darks lights, etc). as for washing, i hate it. i usually do it when i run out of dishes bc they are all stacked in the sink. though at my parents house we have a dishwasher and i hate emptying it...

I don't do either, I have a slave who does it for me.

Instead I am in charge of the fish tank and the cockatoo cage.

I have a dishwasher to do the dishes, and I have the parents to do my ironing  Silly Seriously, I prefer to do the ironing. We iron everything in one go, I can't be doing with ironing as I need it. I enjoy ironing when there is something to watch on TV as it makes thr ironing pile go down quicker.

Who irons?? shirts go to the laundry with the suits/sport coats/pants.

I don't mind washing dishes at all. I have a dishwasher but still prefer doing them manually.

Ironing is a drag but, I watch TV shows I taped or listen and laugh to Howard Stern on Sirius. I don't even mind doing laundry but, I loathe with a passion sorting, folding and putting away the clean laundry! Go figure. Cleaning the stinky box (kitty litter pan) is not exactly a day at the beach. Also, dealing with junk shit mail is a waste of paper and time.

I almost never iron. I just put them in the dryer before I get in the shower and they are wrinkle-free when I put them on.

I have a dishwasher that I have to load and unload and I really hate doing that because my dad insists on absolutely cramming it full of stuff before washing.

I don't like either.

If/when I get married or have a live-in partner (for the second time), I'll insist on cooking, perhaps hooving, etc., while she does the ironing and washing. Perfect.  Wink

While you run the risk of scalding in the shower by an unruly showerhead, the resulting burns are not even close to those produced by an iron at full blast. Plus, you would have that stupid looking iron-bottom pattern on your leg, arm or whatever body part was scortched. Even though both are risky, the sheer magnitude of injury caused by carelessness with an iron leads me to hate it more - the greater of two evils, as it were.

Don't really enjoy either. However, if pressed (pun intended maybe?) to choose, I prefer ironing. I just don't like getting the ironing board and iron set up, but once I start it's sort of therapeutic, I just let my mind wander while ironing. Lately, though, I've discovered the convenience of just sending out my shirts to be laundered professionally.

I don't mind ironing; once a week for about 30 minutes is all that is needed so its a time to think and listen to the radio.

I actually brought a new iron last year which actually made the ironing even easier.

Washing I dislike much more as it is more time consuming on a daily basis.
