Hotel Ironing

with 12 comments


I discovered some time ago that ironing was not something I enjoyed, it’s in the same category as going to the dentist. However, when I took on this job with all it’s traveling, I needed to rethink that task. So, I am now accustomed to ironing prior to trips and while on the road. So, hear is one of those scenes I see on a regular basis with nice white window light.

  1. Nice light indeed – I do wish that I could get to like ironing, though there is a lot of satisfaction from the pile of neatly folded items I guess.

    • As Paul mentions, there is some theraputic value to ironing, similar to shopping. πŸ™‚

  2. LOL! I actually like ironing, though not too much of it. It’s kind of meditative, the feel of the iron gliding over the fabric, seeing the wrinkles disappear, the feel and smell of the steam. I don’t, however, like going to the dentist. There’s nothing meditative in that exercise! πŸ™‚

    • Actually, the ironing has become a simple and easy task. I only need to iron shirts so it goes pretty quickly. And, you’re right, it is meditative and relaxing.

  3. Having just visited the dentist I would have to rank it among my most unfavorite necessities. Ironing…well, I always look for “permanent-press” or “never needs ironing” when I make a clothing purchase.

    • Yes, all my travel clothing is polyester/nylon which is light weight, easy to pack and wrinkles less. However, my uniform is not: cotton shirts.

  4. And such a pretty iron! I have a sister-in-law who loves ironing and vacuuming…. I don’t get it. πŸ˜‰

    • Yes, I find it difficult to understand some people. As Paul states, it can be meditative. I guess I’ve become accustomed to it now.

  5. Beautiful light, but the subject sent a shudder through my body. Faye’s sister-in-law is a rare creature. Yes, it can be meditative, but I can always find things that I would much rather do that put me in a similar state!

    • I hope your okay after the shudder! I, too, can always fond others things to do like loaf around on the couch, surf the net, or take a nap. πŸ™‚

  6. I’ve never touched an iron Monte. It doesn’t look like something I’d enjoy. Now, about this iron, do you have to set the f-stop and shutter speed? Does it have screw on filters? Is it a bayonet mount? Does it “auto” take out the wrinkles, or do you have to focus in on trouble spots? And finally, when you done, do you hang your own shirts or send them to the Lab? LOL
