Perfume Iron

Never wash your clothes again!
  [vote for,

You know the situation...you have two minutes to leave the house and the shirt you wore yesterday and the day before is all sweaty and in a crumble on your bedroom floor....

With the new "Perfume Iron" this won't be a problem...

This iron will iron like a normal iron but will also spray perfumed steam into your shirt leaving you with a fresh new shirt for work. The perfumed steam will also be great for smelly socks and underpants!

       Anything involving actual ironing requires too much flat surface and dexterity. Can we get something more like a french press? (Yes, the coffee kind, not Le Monde.)

       Your standard iron can be retrofitted for the purpose, assuming it's standard enough to have a place to pour water in.   

       (Cautiously) A french press of the kind that one makes coffee in? Perhaps, if your clothes smelled good enough, like really good coffee, no-one would pay attention to the wrinkles.   

       The trouser-press makers might add a scent, um, gland; their ad copy has a kind of halfbaked enthusiasm already.

       I am impressed by the comments! The FrenchSoaps.com idea is more or less the answer to the "perfume iron" idea. We just need stronger fragrances to kill off the more pungent smells!   

       I wonder if the big fragrance houses (Calvin Klein etc) would consider expanding their range of perfumes to include "iron sprays"

       With all due respect to all parties I was eavesdropping on, I am going to submit a halfbaked French Press. Just burning some incense around the offending clothes works, I stink from experience.
I submitted a halfbaked French Press which was designed to pour water on Criminals and/or French people as a means of punishment. PeterSealy correctly pointed out that something like this had already been baked. In Vietnam. During the war. I respectfully removed it. Like I said, I stink from experience.

       //Never wash your clothes again!//

What do you mean, 'again'?

       I question the wisdom of putting anything that contains oils into your iron. They eventually cause the iron to malfunction.
