blech! I am not an ironing person. I hang things while they're wet & try to buy things that are least likely to wrinkle

the skinny drawer next to the fridge which when I took out a fresh Airwick oil smelly thing today I decided I was going to sort out that drawer hopefully tomorrow but definitely this week
