Ironing

Who can iron? I can but it takes me a long time. I find t-shirts the easiest to do and other things more difficult.

I can iron things without burning them. I've yet to manage getting creases out of clothes though.

I'm the same as Danni-I can iron simple items but the creases never seem to come out!

I find it difficult to press down hard enough to iron the creases out. I also find it tiring to put up the ironing board and I'm always spilling water when I refill the iron.
