IRONING. IT MUST be one of the most universally dreaded chores.

According to the Belfast Telegraph today, a recent survey showed that more people are happier if they pay professionals to do the cleaning, ironing and gardening.

The professional ironer interviewed for the piece noted:

“Some people have the perception that if you get your ironing done, you are lazy. That isn’t true. People are genuinely busy. They work hard, long hours and they want to spend time with their families. To them, it is money well spent.”

But others will prefer to do it themselves – or just not bother with the whole enterprise.

How about you? Do you iron your clothes?

Poll Results:

Sometimes, depending on the item and occasion (5930)
Yes, all of them (4417)
No, none of them (2628)
