My mother did the same thing. The clothes seemed easier to get the wrinkles out if you did that.

Most of my clothes are wash and wear and come out fine from the dryer if I hang them up right away. I have some that are linen blends or whatever that I wear on special occasions and don't want to throw in the washer and dryer, and those go to the cleaners.

I do own an iron though, and sometimes use it.

My mom did that too. Wetting and waiting allowed the sprinkled water to spread throughout the material so you could steam iron without a steam iron.

I bet many of us remember, and miss Mama.

To all those who have lost their mothers, my condolences. I lost my 102 year old mother last March, 2 days after her birthday.

I rather like the attitude of the Irish towards bereavement i.e. to celebrate their life as well as mourn their loss. Grief has its place but so does focusing on how they enriched our lives and memories...nothing can take that away. ♥

I miss my Mom and Dad every day, too. I guess that's a good thing, since it means I loved spending time with them and doing things together, and now that isn't possible. Although I do still have conversations with them. In my head. Mostly...

To me, "missing" and "grieving" are two completely distinct emotions. I miss my Mom a lot. I miss our kids a lot. I don't grieve for any of them, but I think I can still miss someone I love whether they are living or gone.
