I bought My Little Steamer from Joy Mangano on QVC and it is wonderful. It is sold in retail stores as well. Reasonable and does the trick.

I still iron my shirts, I also never put them in the dryer. I always hang them. After ironing they look great and smell great.

I feel sorry for the OP.. One helpful comment that responded to the original question.. OP was looking for someone that will iron his shirts.. didnt ask for purchasing advice, do it yourself advice, or how to use a clothes dryer or steamer. sort of like if i asked where to buy a watch, getting responses on using your cell phone, computer or a sun dial instead.

Default Ironing Men's Shirts

I iron my dress shirts about once a month. A hot iron, a little starch and a five minute per shirt investment = a crisp look.

Use a soaking wet towel is the trick to throw in the dryer & run on high for 20 minutes. Will take out wrinkles but not look pressed.

When people come to your house for any service you need to consider their transport costs and their time as well as ironing at your home. I think it would start at $50 a time for a person just to come out, minimum, even if they iron 1 shirt. I think that is why posters are suggesting alternatives.

Well I do have an iron but I use it 2x a year. Can’t break old habits.... for beautifully hand crocheted doilies by my grandmother etc.

But when it comes to clothes, nowadays I look at the label and if it isn’t the easiest care and most comfy ever as well as stylish then it doesn’t come home. (It is really easy to do this because fabrics have really developed.)

It took a while but my hubby is finally starting to do the same... it helped that since he did his own laundry (all his life - he is super picky) and was spending a good 2 days at washing drying and ironing or going to the cleaners back and forth. While I spent 5 minutes for one mixed load to wash and another 2 minutes to put in dryer (have the latest dryer which somehow always guesses right) then go about my hobbies till the machine notifies me via WiFi that it’s done. Hang stuff immediately and voila, looks like ironed. My time 10 minutes spent or less each week.
