Cleaner Dilemma

Note on the not ironing. I have to wear a shirt to work 4 days a week


#82

Used to have a henry, hated it,

Now got a cordless upright, which is fantastic and a timesaver as you don’t have to keep plugging it in, meaning I’m more likely to hoover.


#83

we invested in a hoover that doesn’t fucking explode when you vacuum pet hair


#84

Aye same, he belonged to our landlady so couldn’t wait to bin of that smiley twat when we moved. Got a Shark now innit, it’s got headlights for all your nighttime hoovering needs.

I did a thread about this ages ago. Was quite surprised by the results. I want one, wife doesn’t.


#86

Don’t think I could go back to a corded vacuum cleaner. Absolute mug’s game…


#87

I’m at both ends of the spectrum

Hetty for the hardcore heavy lifting, and a little dyson handheld for spontaneous clean up of cat litter bits and hairballs that float around like tumbleweed. Lives next to the sofa so I can use it to hoover biscuit crumbs off myself

Only time i’d iron a shirt’s for a job interview, funeral, wedding or christening.

Probably iron about two things a year on average.


#89

Hmm, looks like they do a cordless Henry now…

Right with you on all of this. I wear a suit to work all week. I buy non-iron shirts (yeah right) and never iron them. I have not been fired for this. Although to be fair I’ve not been fired for much worse things so perhaps I’m immune.

I did, however discover the other week the circumstances in which I would iron a shirt. These were those circumstances: I was going to the wedding of a much-loved relative; I had travelled six hours with my shirt rolled up in a rucksack; when I got to the place I was staying overnight the shirt was very creased even by my standards; two feet away from the place I had hung the shirt up when I arrived, was an ironing board with a plugged in iron on it. So I gave the front a bit of an iron.

That’s what it takes to make me iron.


#91

this is bollocks


#92

can we get some serious CORDLESS VAC CHAT going in here? i’m needing one for the car


#93

Our cordless picks up a ridiculous amount of pet hair. I normally hoover once a week, and you could probably make another cat out of it.


#94

It really isn’t.


#95

Enjoy your creased shirt at Reading! and I will enjoy ironing a shirt every morning, Mon-Fri


#96

I have a dyson


#97

My cordless upright has a separate handheld, you can detach and do the stairs with, or take to the car. It’s pretty great. I can’t remember the name of it, but I’ll check later, if you care.


#98

Jesus and I thought I had a boring life!


#99

Maaaaate.
