I have to say that the one household chore I HATE is Ironing with a passion, So I decided to buy a steam generator iron and I am reformed I dont have to do anything only move my right arm a bit lol I have done all the ironing today and it only took 40 secs to iron a very crumpled shirt :)
Who else as one ?

Adele Keegan was raving (as usual lol:lol:)...about one of these a while ago!

I am keen to get one...but there are so many to chose from now....with all sorts of outputs & capacities....Is there a Which Magazine that would help me make up my mind which one to get:confused:......or have you any recomendations for makes and models?

I have the Polti steamer, best thing I ever bought. I use it for everything ... well cleaning wise that is! And in Spain it is just the mutts nuts for the tiled floors. I bought the iron attachment and it just speeds through ironing. I still hate doing it, and the pile still builds up until I have nothing left to wear, but it takes a fraction of the time that a traditional iron takes.

Hate, hate, hate ironing!:mad:

Does anyone watch Anthea Turner's Perfect Housewife? She had this fab press iron thing on there last week. But I don't know what it's called. Now IF I am going to iron I want one of those! :lol::lol: Sit down and minimal effort.:green:

I HATE ironing, nothing will ever change my mind about it unless a robot is made to do it for me, I hate even thinking about it tbh!
Dont mind doing the kids clothes, but hubbies drive me mad, long trousers big jumpers etc! Bleurgh!
My ironing pile is..........lets say.........substantial! It only goes down when we run out of clothes!! lol :lol:

The only good ironing system I can think of is the one they advertise in the local paper here.......someone comes and picks it up from your house in a black bin bag and then brings it back on hangers!!!!! :D:biggrin: Now that I could get used to!!

You dont need to keep refilling them with water like a normal iron which saves time and the steam they produce just whizzes through any creases in seconds :)
