    Question Iron without steam?

    I thought I had read about an iron that does not have the steam feature. I do not use the steam on mine ever, if I need it to be steamed I spray with water. If I remember correctly the iron was flat with no holes, which it would not need if there was no steam.

    Mine have the steam feature but I never use it. I always forgot to drain it when I was finished using it so it would get clogged up. Now if I need moisture I use spray starch in a pump bottle. Works great.

    When my steam iron goes out I plan to buy one without the holes in the sole plate. I use a spray bottle of water when needed.

    I'd suggest you buy a vintage iron. It'll last forever. Mines not vintage, its from the early 1980's but it's a workhorse. I've read that many quilters are now buying irons from the 50's and 60's because they are better made and can take the abuse. In the last 10 yrs + I've bought on average a iron a yr for my sewing studio. Finally I dug out my old iron that I only used for clothing(which is never). It gets much hotter than the new irons, and like jingle I use a spray bottle when needed.

    Go to VermontCountryStore.com and put iron in search box. I have the dry iron and really like it.

    its called a 'dry iron', has a flat plate- no steam holes- generally located with all the other irons in the store- just look for one called a dry iron instead of steam iron.

    I am in Canada, not sure how the shipping would work, beings it is charged by weight. Anyone know where I could get one here? Thanks.
