Ironing bored

There are many reasons not to like ironing…

  • the aching you get in one arm because you can’t iron with both hands
  • the fact that there’s always a crease that wins the iron VS crease battle (even though the iron usually wins the war)
  • when you always have to refill the water just as you’re getting into your stride
  • When pressing the steam button, nothing seems to happen and when you lift the iron to check, there’s your blast of steam
  • and how do you clean an iron anyway?!!?

According to research from 2012 families spend an average of 160 hours a year eliminating unwanted creases from clothing, adding up to around a year-and-a-half over a lifetime. But the latest irons have changed the face of…erm… ironing with their efforts to make this dull chore quicker and easier.
