Ironing is rarely anyone's favourite chore. Lifehacker reader Peter suggests that if you're layering on the clothes, you don't need to worry so much about getting your business shirt looking creaseless.

So I was in a rush to work today and I wondered if I could get away with wearing a shirt with only the collar ironed to wear under a sweater . . . It looks the same!! So as long as you can leave it on at work for the day, no one will notice the difference. I think I will save some money from the dry cleaners in winter or time at home ironing shirts for the week.
I'm very much in two minds about this. I dry shirts on hangers and hardly ever iron them in the first place, so if I've bothered to switch the iron on at all, I'm going to finish the job. But then I'm in a career where I can get away with looking like a slob a lot of the time. If your boss wants you to look neat, this could be a sensible solution.
So let's open it up to the Lifehacker readership. Would you contemplate collar-only-ironing plus a jumper? What are your ironing time saving tricks? We're waiting, slightly wrinkled, for your comments.
