I am vigilant in the laundry room, trying to pull out my button downs while they’re still warm in order to immediately get them onto a hanger. I’d rather hang things like crazy than have to pull out the board and the iron and the spray bottle. But sometimes I mess up the timing and my shirts and pants are Willy Loman rumpled.
