In, perhaps, a blast from the past, we look at the art of ironing today through an article written by Christine Fellingham for AARP recently.

“There was a time when the iron was woven into the rumpled fabric of family life. This humble appliance would be brought out — along with the ceremonious popping into position of the ironing board — to smooth a church dress, crease a pair of trousers or unwrinkled fancy cloth napkins. In my childhood home, even my father’s jeans had to be neatly pressed into perfection.
