Use an Electric Pants Press for Wrinkled Pants

Hubby found an electric pants presser for $20 at a thrift store. I am learning to use it to "press" his khaki work pants, which come out of the wash all wrinkled. The press is not supposed to DO that. I find I can more or less iron out pants with it while watching TV. This makes it a labor-saving device for me and hubby can't complain about me avoiding ironing his cotton pants anymore! (Any excess wrinkling can be dealt with by using a wrinkle spray of 1/2 water and 1/2 fabric softener.) $20 is cheap, but I had seen some in eBay for less than $100.

I have to ask, He complains about you not ironing his work pants? Why not suggest he do them himself? They are his pants after all.

Interesting idea. It might work for me, too. I've been leery of trying to use an iron since a drunk driver accident cost me most of my usable vision 7 years ago.

Sandy/Pittsburgh, I suspect this is one of those old-fashioned guys who actually expects his wife to do all domestic tasks, including the ironing. Not very PC.
