Incredibly, millennials were not far behind, as 1 in 5 reported they couldn't work the iron either.
A survey of Britons aged 25-39 years found a staggering 62% had difficulty with the settings and steam button on an iron.
Another survey from Airtasker research found that only 1 in 4 millennials were confident that they could defrost a freezer or assemble flat-pack furniture.
Meanwhile, members of Gen Z are also six times more likely to ask someone for help with housework rather than do it on their own.
