Ironing out the wrinkles in my life
I hate ironing - really, really hate it. I would rather clean the loo, of my neighbour. With 2 kids now in high-school and hubby in a new job, all wearing shirts and blazers, pants and pleated skirts, my life became a continuous streaming torture of ironing this year. We also have a tiny laundry, which means no full size iron board fits. In desperation I bought the Tefal Ixeo QT2020. It can be used both vertically and horizontally, at sitting and standing level and packs away into a floor space less than an A3 sheet of paper. I love it. Ironin...g is done so quickly, and perfectly. If I want crisp seams I press on the backboard (I prefer using it upright with the metal pegs they provide), if I want quick wrinkle removal, I free-steam. The iron auto-adjusts for the fabric type and I have never had that go wrong - although it was a bit nerve-wracking the first time I approached the iron with my fave silk dress, unable to adjust the temp, awaiting the judgement of the ironing gods. I got the QT2020 as it auto-descales, which you need to do manually via tablets in the QT1020, that's a guaranteed fail in my busy working mum life. When I am done is telescopes down and folds flat so I can store away with minimum space use. It is plastic and I wonder how many years the frame will last, but that is a trade off for less weight I guess. I still hate ironing, but I love that Ixeo makes that feeling disappear so quickly and I get on with the better parts of my life, and my neighbours now clean their own loo.
