Clothes IronBefore you begin to iron, run the iron over a sheet of waxed paper. It will help the iron glide more easily. Also, always keep the plate of the iron clean.

I don't iron much anymore if I can help it, but I kept my iron clean with this method in my younger days when I was ironing at home for siblings as well as for my own children and husband. Back in those days we used Bread Wrappers because they were waxed paper.You just had to make sure you ironed on the wrong side of the wrapper and put it on an old cloth cleaning rag so the writing on the bread wrapper didn't come off on the iron or the ironing board cover. We also used to use an old pop bottle with a sprinkler on top to dampen the clothes because we didn't have steam irons. And we would sprinkle them with water and roll them up and put them in the basket and let them set until they were damp. And if you got busy at something else before you got them ironed, you could put them in the refrigerator for a short time (maybe overnight) so they didn't dry out.


Guess that is what they called "The Good Old Days!"
