There are so many new fabrics out there that don't really require ironing, but I don't seem to ever find any clothes made out of those fabrics, I basically still do it the old way and iron, to the best of my ability, all my own clothes. I don't have the patience to haul everything to the cleaners and wait a few days for everything to be ready.
