You would need a very long extension cord, presumably.

it's actually a "sport"... google "extreme ironing" and look at the pictures. The rules state that the iron doesn't actually need to be plugged in, just that you have all the kit and carry out the actions.

I know... I'm waaaay too bored!

well, I wouldn't know, because I don't do ironing either, let alone at the top of a mountain, but hey... whatever floats you boat!

and calling ironing a sports is being a bit creative with the truth, maybe they should call it extreme house keeping?

Bluecat I havent ironed my clothes in years- I own a lot of jersey which doesnt need it, wear alot of denim etc if i have a certain outfit for a special occassion that need sit I take it into work and use the steamer but this is hardly ever. or Dry clean only stuff! I hang my stuff very carefully when I take it out the washer and generally it dries flat so just hang it up and it passes. For me I think its years of doing it for a living has made me allergic to it, That and I always did the ironing at home as a kid and my mum was quite particular about it- think i put me off! she made me iron tea towels and knickers and stuff

my mum made me do a lot of cleaning as a kid and she is very particular which has completely put me off all cleaning. same thing with cutting grass, i was forced to do it every week (twice a week in the summer) and i just can't stand it..
