    Hell no. Darling Husband wears a similar wardrobe to work and I just wash it like I do the rest of our clothes (though in their own load). I don’t iron since I hate it. I’ve found that as long as his dress shirts are put in the dryer as soon as they’re done in the washer and then hung up immediately, they don’t wrinkle. 

    My old boss used to take all of his dress shirts to the dry cleaner so that his wife didn’t have to worry about them. I thought that was very nice since it was him dealing with taking them to and from. If we were to use a dry cleaner for DH’s work clothes, it would be me doing all of the work and I’m not about to go out of my way even more.

    When Darling Husband has to wear suits and such for work, I mkae sure those are dry cleaned.  But his normal day-to-day outfits I just wash with the rest of our clothing.

    My husband takes his own clothes to the dry cleaner.  Mostly his button downs and suits. The rest of the stuff I wash.

    We both dry clean almost all of our work clothes.  I like how they come out better than when I do them!

    Both of us take all our work clothes to the dry cleaner. His shirts are just laundered and pressed but everything else is dry cleaned.

    We usually dry clean most of our work clothes…I hate ironing, and it never seems to turn out right when I do it! We ask for medium starch and everything stays looking crisp longer…I can usually get away with a few wears before sending it to the dry cleaner again. It can be a bit expensive though, so we’ve also been considering getting a steamer.

    Darling Husband uses the dry cleaner for all of his work clothes but I just do mine at home. I wear jeans to work (for now) so nothing I have needs dry cleaning.

    I wash and dry his clothes.  I hang most of his dress shirts to dry, and he irons his own clothes  (luckily! I hate ironing).  He doesn’t wear suits or anything that’s dry-clean-only to work.

    Only his suits are dry cleaned. The rest of his nice work clothes I wash on a gentle cycle and then dry on cool (some is also hung to dry).

    I wash and dry his work clothes.  If I hang them up fairly quickly after they are done in the dryer, they don’t need ironing.  His work clothes are just slacks and button-down shirts…nothing that would warrant the expense of a dry cleaner for us.

    I wash/dry his clothes. And like someone said already if I hang them up right out of the dryer you usually can avoid ironing depending on what it is. And when they do need the iron, he’ll do it himself (yay!).

    First of all, he does his own laundry.  He washes and dries, but I got him to hang dry, because using a drier is not necessary.
