Ironing with a Hair Straightener?

Don't Knock It Before You Try It!

Ok so I really hate ironing!  I'm sure that I'm not alone in that sentiment either.  It's a hassle to get the ironing board out and if I'm all out of starch I know that my clothes won't stay pressed for long.  And honestly, I haven't bought starch since... well I couldn't even tell you when. 

Yesterday I was in a hurry or lazy, whichever, and I decided while I was straigtening my hair to use the flat iron on my wrinkled shirt.  And you know what?  It actually worked and not too shabby either!

When Shannon called me out on Twitter for hitting a new low (LOL), I had to see if others have tried it!  And sure enough they have!  The Huffington Post even reccommends it!  Check out their story here.  Just make sure to clean the plates of your straightener while cool to remove any debris before using to iron your clothes.

I mean I wouldn't reccommend this all the time, but if your in a pinch and your shirt just needs a quick touch up, I say go for it!

Happy ironing or straightening for that matter!
