    My department pays for dry cleaning, but I have used an iron and starch in a pinch.

    I wear a BDU style uniform, so I am able to wash, iron, and then wear. If they were the typical Class A/B style uniforms, I would dry clean without a doubt, which is the case for my dress uniform.

    I hate that smell. But dry cleaning will help keep uniforms lasting longer and looking better. Tax write off.

    If you wash our 100% wool uniforms they come out looking like a quilted paper towel, believe me, some of our guys have come to roll call thinking no one would notice.

    Either

    The housekeeper used to do ALL of my uniforms, but now that I am single again and living overseas, I have them dry cleaned, including my BDU's which usually look pretty good after extra starch.

    I prefer placing the uniform under the mattress and rubbing it with a warm brick prior to wearing......

    Our pants have sewn-in creases- everything goes to the cleaner's, though. It's nice not to have to worry about it- drop it off downstairs and take it off the rack a few days later.

    Wife irons mine and does a good job. I am very particular about creases, but she learned how picky I was with my Army uniforms.

    Iron and HEAVY starch. Nobody gets the creases the way I like 'em but me.

    I wash and wear unless I forgot to take them out of the dryer in time...then I have the husband iron them when he does his. I suppose it's because of the color, but his tan SO uniforms HAVE to be ironed, otherwise they look like crap...my black uniform is fine wash and wear most of the time.

    For 30+ years at the 'big-city, west coast', I maintained very intimate relationships with several dry-cleaners. I might have owned a Corvette with all the $$$$ I spent on dry-cleaning.

    My new department issues wash 'n' wear uniforms. I had the local dry-cleaners press them, only, the first time. If I take them out of the dryer right when the buzzer goes off, they look pretty good. I keep assessing them every time.
