WFMW

My dentist (I'm a dental assistant) seems to think that our scrubs should be ironed. I don't really wear other clothes that need ironing on a regular basis, so I don't have a stack of ironing to do at once. (I doubt my 3 year old would appreciate my effort!) Instead of dragging the ironing board out everyday (wish I had the luxury of leaving this out!), I sometimes use the wet towel from my shower. I just fold the towel over and lay it on the floor (or a table) then iron as usual. The wetness creates steam, so it doesn't take as long to get the scrubs ironed, and I don't have to spray water.

It Works For Me!

....And, they have that "pressed"
look longer too! :)

That's a great idea!

Just don't make the mistake that I made years ago and leave the iron on the floor with a toddler running around, and go take a shower.

(What was I thinking? Oh well. That was another life.;)

What's the use of being able to wear your pajamas to work (which I always kid my scrub wearing nurse sister in law about) if they have to be ironed?

That really is a great tip.

I soooooo agree about the pajamas! I hate ironing them, but alas the dentist is the one who signs those huge paychecks...
