People Are Sharing Their Ironing Fails Online And It Might Brighten Up Your Mood (52 Pics)

Don’t tell me you didn’t read the care label before ironing that damn silk blouse. ‘Cause neither did I. I cut it off as soon as I bought the shirt, and entrusted its destiny to my own rational mind and its power of calculated decisions.

Asking what went wrong and at what point would be an understatement. Ironing fails are not for the faint-hearted, so be sure to arm yourself with the ability to laugh at yourself. Bored Panda has compiled a list of the funniest and, indeed, most painful cases of ironing gone wrong.

It serves as a tribute to all the people out there who thought they were going to take back control of their lives by getting that iron heated up on questionable materials and surfaces.

In a perfect world, nobody would ever have to do ironing (or washing), like, ever again. But surprise, surprise, we know very well that the world is far from perfect and you do need to iron that goddamn shirt from time to time.

Asking for help is one way to go about it, but if you want to feel like a responsible, independent adult, you’ll have to do it on your own. In order to make that time easy and pain-free, there are some basic principles when it comes to the art of ironing. I know this sounds like I’m being sarcastic, but trust me, making those creases even with a heated iron block is a form of art not meant for everyone.

The logic is simple: in order to master ironing, one has to try and avoid it all costs. I told you ironing is not for the faint-hearted, but if you go through this five-step program, the chances are you won’t see that fearful device any time soon.

First, fold your clothes as soon as the dryer is done, because as soon as these crisp garments dry, they’ll develop creases and it will be too late.

The second step is not to dry your clothes fully, but leave them until they’re 80% done drying. Line-drying things would be the best and most crease-free way, but then you have to be patient and deal with humidity for longer than it’s necessary.

The third step is getting a garment steamer, which may sound like it’s a cousin of the iron, but trust me, it’s not. Steamers are easy to use and help with those daily touch-ups. Running the steamer gently over the surface takes a few minutes and you’re good to go.

The last step is simply to try ironing for once in your life and see how it goes. Even if it’s not for everyone, and most of humanity (especially millennials) refuses to come to terms with it, it doesn’t mean you can’t do it. Calling your friend, girlfriend, and mom (if you’re willing to spend an hour or so talking about auntie Betsy and her new retriever puppies) is always a good idea.
