Default Least favorite chore(s) - I really should do it!

My husband could really use my help with his ironing. He does more than his share, but ironing is my least favorite chore ever. He used to send his work clothes to the dry cleaners, but it just became too expensive.

Since I'm home all day, I only wear casual clothes that don't need ironing if I remove them from the dryer fast enough. But his work clothes still do.

Do others have major issues with ironing or some other chores? What are your least and most favorite chores?

Note: Folding and putting away clothes are my second and third least favorite chores. My favorite chore is cooking and baking. I don't mind tidying up or doing dishes or loading the dishwasher.

OK. I promised to iron at least three of his shirts. I'll report back when I've done them.

UPDATE: I finished ironing six of hubby's shirts.

Laundry, but I always do it. Especially folding sheets, ugh!

I sweep and vacuum the floors, but it hurts my back. No way I can mop; I'll be writing in agony at the end.
