What is the longest you've left something at the dry cleaners? I drive past my dry cleaners twice a day. On the way to work and on the way home. The ticket is in the cup holder in my car to serve as a reminder. It is my cream silk blouse with ruffles. I iron, but I cannot get the wrinkles out of that silk blouse.
A guy that I went to high school with owns a dry cleaners. He had a guy leave a brown leather coat there for a year. After a year had passed, my friend started to wear the coat. That was when the owner of the coat returned to claim said coat. My friend had to clean it again before he returned it to the rightful owner.
Do you take clothing to the dry cleaners? There was a time in my life when my dry cleaning bill was one of my biggest bills. I worked in advertising and lived in suits. I wore suits daily. Thank goodness those days are behind me. As a rule, I try not to buy clothes that need to be dry cleaned, but I am drawn to linen, cotton and silk. I always joke that the way that you know that linen is linen is because it is wrinkled.
Everyone that knows me knows that I iron. My ironing board is set up all the time. Usually with a stack of clothes sitting on it. I find ironing soothing. The hiss of the steam smoothing out all that is wrong. People tease me about ironing. I like to be pressed and fixed. If a collar is crooked or there is a wrinkle down the front of what I am wearing, it makes me crazy. I ironed for an hour or more today in preparation of the upcoming work week. I am an extreme ironer, but not like this:
|No, I don't ride my board this way.|
|Is this for real?|
