Default Ironing Men’s Shirts?

Is there anyone in The Villages (or really close by) who irons at home? For example, men’s dress shirts.

Toss them in the drier for a couple minutes and hang em up, good enough. The only thing I ever used an iron for was to hot wax my skis.

Have you tried hanging them up and using a small hand steamer on them? I bought one on Amazon a while back for $20 or $25 and I am in love! Can't believe I never knew how great they are.

In love with a steamer. Sounds dangerous.

I get it nothing better than a pressed shirt. Try any local dry cleaner.

How about buying iron and doing it yourself?

I iron and actually enjoy the peace of it. When I visit the kids, I do all their ironing to help out. It's a chore. Some people like it, some don't. And definitely YES, some things need to be ironed.

Default Ironing Shirts

I have a lady that irons mine for 1.50 each. Minimum 15 shirts. She lives close to the Summerfield Post office. If interested call me and leave message and I will give you her number. Oh, you must drop off and pick up and furnish hangers. She does a great job and really needs the money. My message taking phone number is 3525618899
