- Get the longest and widest ironing board you can for your budget. Why? It naturally follows that the bigger the surface area you have, the fewer times you will need to reposition the items you’re ironing. Get one at least 135 x 45cm and with ‘Heat Resistant Iron Parking Zone’, so you can rest the iron on the board cover rather than having to continually put it back on its base – efficiency of movement.
- Purchase a Steam Generator Iron. Tackle your laundry pile with a steam generator and you’ll sail through the job in no time, saving you time; and should you outsource the ironing – money.
