Use the floor.

Or kitchen work surface

Hang it in the bathroom, turn the shower on super hot, amd shut the bathroom door.


Wear a jumper over it, or a different shirt which doesn’t require ironing.


This is my favourite solution so far, does it work?

As an aside, it really irks me that in this day and age, clothes are still being produced which require ironing. Bizarrely, the more expensive the shirt, the more likely it is you’ll need to iron it.

It’s done ‘good-enough’ for me in the past but it’s not going to be as good as iron + board.

I have actually used this solution when on holiday and clothes have become creased in my bag. It’s not perfect, but they look reasonably presentable after.

You could just wear the shirt while showering?

It would get too wet and I wouldn’t get clean enough. Cheers though.


Accept that the fire alarm is only looking out for you and embrace the noise. My fire alarm has never gone off, never. It makes me a bit concerned it doesn’t work. Yet it did that thing where the battery runs out it beeps constantly. We don’t have a ladder and the tall bf wasn’t here to change it. I had to drag the living room table though to the hallway and put a chair on top of that. And then tip toe it.

Alternatively you could adopt a wafting system. Wife wafts whilst you tend to the sausages.
