We are looking for ways to make a few extra bucks these days, but did you know that you can make money ironing clothes. Now, ironing clothes is not my favorite chore, but it is an easy enough job especially if you need the extra money.
Most of the jobs that I have seen ironing clothes have been on Craigslist. Craigslist is a free classified site that offers individuals and companies the chance to post jobs and gigs for free. I have used them to find all kinds of jobs to make money including ironing clothes.
Here’s how to do it. Visit Craigslist.com and choose the city that is closet to you (there are over 400 of them). Then you want to check the “Gigs” section to find people who are hiring someone to iron or launder their clothes. Some people will pay hourly ($8-$12), but I have also seen many posters who will pay per item of clothing, usually around $1.00. When applying for a job be sure to ask detailed questions like whether you can iron the clothes at your own house or whether they want it done at their house. Also ask if you are required to have your own supplies or if they have an iron and ironing board that you can use. I prefer to bring my own iron to gigs because I know that it is high quality and won’t stain any of their clothes.
Ironing clothes is a great second job to make some extra money, because you get to be your own boss. You can pick and choose the jobs you want to accept and the work is relatively easy. I also enjoying ironing for money because I can listen to my iPod or watch television at the same time. It’s almost like relaxing time except I’m getting paid for it!!
