Anyone else use their dryers to press their clothes?

    This is the greatest just throw your clothes that are all wrinkly into the dryer for 5 minutes and your clothes are pressed and ready to go, its alot easier then pressing dress shirts and pants :hyper: .

    Even if I dry my shirts and hang them afterwards, they still don't look half as nice as when they're taken to the dry cleaners. It works, but it doesn't look as good. It matters not to me though; Eric can iron a mean shirt.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    I still do that from time to time. Works best with cottons, IMO.

    I wear fairly expensive Tommy Bahama and Toni Richards shirts often these days. Those always go to the dry cleaners.

    I throw clothes in the dryer for a quick 10 minute de-wrinkle all the time. Did it this morning before work, infact :)

    I take a wet washcloth and throw it in with the wrinkled shirt. I was never handy at all with an iron.

    Still, polyester is the best because it always stays nice. :D

    Do it every day before school. Grab my clothes, make sure they don't smell, throw them in the dryer and proceed to take a shower. It's a nifty little thing.

    T-shirts and jeans go in the dryer, anything else goes to the cleaners. Dress shirts and pants, definitely cleaner material. I'm far too impatient (and busy) to do those myself. :)

    I can not find a quality permanent press dress shirt, I don't believe they exist, Dry cleaners for the dress stuff.

    Putting clothes in the dryer wears them out faster. Drying is very hard on clothes.

    I just have my maid do it......

    (j/k) :D

    Nah, the dryers where I live cost money. I hang my pants up in the morning, and by the time my wife and I have both taken severely hot showers the steam and heat has de-wrinklified them :)

    A dryer is really much too heavy to press clothes with.
