My new iron comes with a set of safety instructions.

"WARNING- Do not steam-iron a garment you are currently wearing."

We must conclude they're just fine, disturbingly enough.

I do it all the time. I plan on suing the manufacturer when I finally work up the balls to really burn myself.

Really? I honestly never knew that. I wonder who would be the type of person to try ironing their clothes while they are still in them. :lol:

Before you laugh at the retarded self ironers I know for a fact there are at least two CGers who've ironed stuff they were wearing.

Now laugh at them!!!

I can't remember who one of them is...

One's Shakey though, and it was discussed at a CG meeting which is why I know someone else had too.

People put guns to their head and pull the trigger. Think we need a warning?

Also of note...do not dry clothing you are wearing in the dryer. That shit hurts.

I did when I was about 16 or so...just pulled the shirttail up on the ironing board.

Didn't get burned but, Oh yes it was stupid :bounce:

buggered if I can remember where I heard it- Its published with safety stats each year- household incidents. Probably the NHS or Ministry of Falling Downstairs or something. I'll have a dig around.
