My youngest SON-IN-LAW irons his own shirts LOL - he prefers to do it because he's fussy about it and actually LIKES to iron. Well, that's what he's told me. He even irons my daughter's blouses and other things and his step-daughter's long dresses and skirts! I told my daughter she's one lucky lady! ;D
I too grew up with the spinkle system - we had the sprinkler head for a bottle but sometimes we just used to sprinkle tap water from a glass. I also remember rolling the clothes in order to spread the moisture through them.
When I was a newly-wed, we lived in Norfolk VA. My husband was in the Navy. We had no wash machine nor dryer. I did all those Navy whites [and dungarees and work shirts] by hand! Thank God for Clorox! LOL No kidding; had to dry everything outside. After a while, I finally got the hang of it [yeah okay bad pun]!
I realized that if I took the clothes down when they were still a bit damp, I could iron them so much easier. That's why I'd run out to the lines, pull down a few almost dry items and run back and iron them! Good thing I was so young back then - hee hee hee I got a break because the dark blue dress uniform needed to be sent to the dry-cleaners! Oh those good old days!
new on my list.... Gukhwa's face when she opened the box of "clothes" Yunhu gave her at the hotel..only it was a box of foundation garmets. Gukhwa's face when she stepped off the elevator and discovered Yunhu was wearing a matching outfit...and then to learn he planned it that way! VERY funny and very cute!
