I thought I'd learnt all I would ever need to know about ironing when I was in the Army, however, my steam generator is just about one of the most satisfying labour saving things I've come across in ages.
My iron was over 15 years old, my ironing board over 25 years old! So I decided it was time to splash out on new stuff, even though I really don't like (or do much) ironing.
After reading about them here, I decided to get a steam generator - I got the philips one, and a new giant ironing board - so big it looks like a surf board.
These things are absolutely bloody amazing! I spent the whole morning ironing, even offered to do DH shirts, and managed to breeze through a nightmare linen tablecloth that we only use once a year at Christmas because it's such a pain to iron.
I cannot believe that I am spending a Saturday night extolling the virtues of ironing, but there you go. I [heart] my steam generator.
