You learn a lot about versatilty and muli-purposing when traveling. I am on a grueling 3 week, 3 city trip with 2 kids so I HAD to pack light. One thing I certainly did NOT bring was an iron. What is a girl to do with a crinkly wrinkly summer poplin shirt? I didn’t pack so light that I did not bring my flat iron with me so in a bind I decided to try it out on my shirt. Amazing! I thought it was going to be a major hassle but it turns out to be so much easier than ironing with a regular iron (well, maybe because I don’t actually know how to iron). The small surface actually was easier to negotiate collars and button placket. I couldn’t actually do the entire shirt, only the edges but it got me through the day and being that I am on vacation and at the beach, it was definitely good enough. Who would have thought! Now I love my flat iron even more! If you don’t already have a flat iron, the T3 is the best. T3 Duality Iron for $160 at Sephora.
