Video: How to iron like your mum after Tefal study shows adults clueless on housework
WITH figures showing one in five mothers still help their grown-up children with chores such as ironing, News Shopper presents a handy guide to pressing a shirt just like mum does it.
Clueless sons and daughters who have flown the family nest are still relying on their mummies to take care of them, a study by Tefal has found.
Its research discovered a fifth of adults still get their mum to help with housework, with more than half of respondents admitting to enjoying the benefits of mum’s ironing for over eight years.
The research suggests a clear lack of knowledge on domestic duties, with people not learning the skills they need to survive on their own.
With 23 applicants applying for every job vacancy, it’s more important than ever for home-leavers to take pride in their appearance.
Tefal has launched a quirky ironing guide to help give mum a break from household chores while showing sons and daughters how to press to impress. Watch the video below, and in case there are any confused fellas – dressing in drag is not necessary for successful ironing!
