How do Amish women iron clothes, if there’s no electricity allowed? ~Nancy B
They have several different options. One is using the old-fashioned type sad iron with a removable handle. They will have two of them, one heating on the stove while they iron with the other one. Once it cools too much to iron the will switch them.
Another option is the gas iron. The blue tank is filled with Coleman fuel and allowed to heat. The flames can be regulated to keep the iron at the desired temperature.
The third option is to use an electric iron with the cord removed and simply heat it on the stove.
