Never heard of wrinkled T-shirt after laundry?

I think there's been an anti-ironing bias stewing for past few decades..

We iron too.
It happens even to the best of us that we sometimes forget to throw in Sta-Soft (fabric softener) during the laundry.

Anti-ironing bias here, particularly for t-shirts. If I remove work shirts and trousers promptly from the tumbler or hang up to dry, there are almost no wrinkles anyway. Fabrics have come a long way in the last few decades. Some are even stain-resistant!
Tons of tennis T-shirts to be washed in a single laundry drum on weekly basis adds extra work later!

Are you sure it's not the tennis balls you accidently throw in, too?

I know what you mean. Doing sports everyday adds on some extra routines. It is not something you even notice, though. Nor do I iron my running or weight lifting clothes, or SUP stuff, that would be...bordeline iron fetish.

Lol! These I only do when trying to dry out linen in the dryer to take out the fluffy stuff.

My neighbor asked me once if I had some old tennis balls as it apparently works miracles.

Is not as hot in the office as I thought it would be and I’m still able to type on the EF.

Thank you MusicChick for keeping me still alive :msnhot:

Re: next week will be freaking hot, according to MeteoSuisse

We lived in Minergie Eco house once. Never again. We couldn’t regulate the ventilation let alone the heating. It was super hot in summer since the huge windows couldn’t be opened normally so we had to put the blinds down. Actually the living room window couldn’t be opened at all. The balcony was boiling hot too since it was built like a Loggia, there was no breeze. The apartment was the worst architecture fail I have ever seen. Glad we were able to move out. Oh and did I mention how dusty that place was. Minergie is the worst you can have . Don’t understand why they build this everywhere now. You were one of the lucky ones.

We live in a minergy house and I can confirm that. Temperate only goes up after multiple hot days.

Our place in the mountains is ever better: temperature never goes over 22 degrees inside, even during hot summer days.

Wouldn't that remove the need to get up at 2am? For us it does.
No, it makes getting up at 2AM necessary. We can't open the windows before bedtime, as it's still quite hot. So I have to get up at 2, when the temps have finally started to drop, to let the night air in. Low temps are usually around 5AM, but once the sun rises, around 05:30, things start heating up quickly. The sweet spot for cooling the house is letting air in 2AM to sunrise.

Today wasn't so bad, so I could leave the windows open until ca. 7AM, but at that point the heat started to climb. I doubt I'll have that luxury later in the week.

---

Positive thing about this heat wave:

If it gets unbearable I'll move down into the cellar... at which point I might as well start tidying up the junk accumulated over the last 15 years, something I've been putting off doing for just about that long.

No anti-ironing bias as such, I just prefer to not create more work for myself than necessary. Call it lazyness if you want. I don't use softener either, that's what the dryer (or a soft breeze if I hang them on the clothesline) is for.

Get them into form before dryer'ing, make sure there's plenty free space in the drum. Take them out while still warm and fold at once. Done.

Re: next week will be freaking hot, according to MeteoSuisse

In summer I really like it is a bit hotter than feel like always in Winter, raining and cold all day long. Although my flat is on the 4th floor, and it can get super hot in the evening after a hot day

I've found the shock of the temperature difference when you have to venture outside too much when the inside A/C temperature is really low. We leave it at around 23-24C then it's not so crushingly hot when you go out into the street.

Same thing goes for having a cold shower when it's hot. It's nice while you are in the shower but it feels like you've stepped into a furnace five mins after you've got out and got dry.

The opposite shock is what makes it all worth it - when you are outside in the boiling heat and can step into the cold - what a relief. I miss proper American air conditioning almost as much as the Mexican food.

That’s when you are prone to get sick faster by abruptly changing body temperature.

Like a semiconductor switching device that doesn’t like sudden change of temperature gradient.

I've got a solution to that - although I did iron a t-shirt today. My wife is adamant that ironing clothes means they last longer. Who am I to argue?

Hmm. I think sauna users might disagree about that.

I step out of the cold office and then either into an A/C'd car, or onto a motorcycle.

P.S. I'm now wearing shorts to work for the past three weeks.
