We had no idea that people still had coal burning irons. We visited this Sister and she was using one. She said that you put the hot coals in the top and iron the Levi's first and then as the iron cools you use it on the more delicate clothing. Not everyone has electricity where we are and a lot of people do not have running water. If they do have electricity it may be hanging wires with one light bulb. Some have more , many have TVs.
