Hi all, I read through many of the old posts on ironing boards but have a question that I didn't see addressed.
A few months ago, I bought a Rowenta iron. It's working great so far and produces lots of steam. However, they recommend a mesh ironing board - the top over which the cover is places is wire mesh. My current ironing board is solid metal with holes punched through it every so often. I find that my ironing board cover retains lots of moisture and takes forever to dry.
So...I am planning to replace my 30-year old ironing board.
Now...my question: I only have room for one ironing board and am tempted to get a 15" wide one. However, I read on a blog/post somewhere that it now limits your ability to iron clothes. In particular, the poster mentioned pulling the hip area of pants over the board (like a free-arm). The ironing board was too large to allow this.
Thoughts? Thanks in advance.
