Ironing is the chore that I enjoy (of course along with grocery and CVS shopping). I can relax while I iron. I prefer to iron during the boys nap or quiet time. It seems to be an outlet for frustration. I also can spend precious time praying while I iron. That is one thing I most enjoy about it. If I try to iron while the boys are up and about, I had might as well forget it. I am back and forth and might get 4 or 5 things ironed in 30 minutes. I usually can iron 30-40 items in 45 minutes.
I only iron church and everyday (good) clothes. I do not iron hubby's work clothes. Most of his shirts are company shirts that are wrinkle free. I iron all of the boys clothes or at least try to. They seem to bring more at the consignment shops and ironing seems to keep them in better shape. I also iron my good cloth napkins and table linens. Don't even ask when the last time I had a table cloth on. Maybe when the boys were 13 months? They kept pulling it off the table! LOL!
I do know people that iron sheets, work clothes, underclothes and even towels. Whatever works for you. mine are all okay a little wrinkled. I do iron my curtains (window treatments) though.
I love to iron. I don't know why but I do. I guess it is kind of a tension tamer. I even took ironing in when I was 19 and 20. My brother and sil were my best customers.
