  • Ironing

    Learned something new today:

    Place aluminum foil under your ironing board cover, so you can press both the top & bottom at the same time when ironing things like polo shirts, slacks, jeans.

    I've got some wide commercial foil, so gonna try it. Would be nice not to have to flip things over & iron the back side!

    Let me know how well that works, please. I avoid ironing at all costs!

      I don't mind ironing at all. I made the spare bedroom into a sewing/craft/beading room. I love being in that room.

        Loopy3505 I don't mind ironing either, but being able to iron both sides at the same time would be nice! I still iron pillowcases (though not sheets anymore) & dish towels, etc. We used to call them "flats" when I was a kid. Years ago, Avon sold aerosol sprays that I used to iron bed linens. Loved them! My favs were apple and strawberry.

        Haven't had time yet to install the foil, but will report back on my results.

          I think I would enjoy ironing a lot more if the ironing board weren't tucked in a dark corner next to the water heater in the basement. I'm in an old house, and visits to the basement are pretty much for laundry only.

            I turn on the TV and watch it while I iron.
