Out of about 80 students surveyed, it ended up 50% said they knew what an ironing board was but they didn't all own one. The other 50% didn't have a clue what I was talking about.
(I remember having to sprinkle EVERYTHING with water, roll it up and store it in the fridge. Then iron every bit of it....hankies, overalls, jeans, shirts, dish cloths, table cloths, etc. etc. It never ended with a family of 7. Of course ONLY the females "got" to iron! -- why is that, Mom?!)
