Just remember, all those safety warnings are there because someone did something stupid and cost the manufacturer money because of it.

Manuals I use more than at setup I grab online so I can search them easier. We keep them in a couple places, depending on what they are for. I generally cull them when looking for a manual.

That was not a safety precaution, Katie. That was just the manufacturer's suggestion of how to make the ironing chore more sexy.

Is that anything like, "I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don't know!"?

Come to think of it naked ironing would make the job more, um, interesting. Don't forget I'm still a newlywed.

[QUOTE=Katie H;1057497]An instruction book that came with an iron I had once, cautioned not to wear clothes while ironing. Well, duh!!!! However, I will have to admit to flipping the bottom edge of a skirt I had on to press the hem a bit.

I just use the curling iron for those quick little presses while wearing.
That manual says nothing about ironing clothes or about wearing clothes or not.

Me too! I'm afraid I'd get arrested for eye-ball abuse!

People! It's OK to close the blinds. Think of the children!

The manual for my clothes iron cautions in its safety instructions that "men should wear pants while ironing."

In some cases, hot is ok, but flat is not!
