Ironing without electricity

In my constant efforts to reduce electricity consumption in meaningful ways, I used my flat iron this morning, whilst the stove was up and hot for cooking, to do the teatowels - picture a couple of posts down.

Looking further into it, I found this on Youtube:

Fascinating and inspiring. Not sure I could lift that heavy iron full of coals for long. I have my grandmother's box iron, I might give that a go.

What a great video!

I only have one or two things I really need to iron, so your idea of using the stove might come in useful...
