This is one of those "why didn't I think of that" things. I have a problem remembering to turn off my iron when I leave my sewing room for the evening. I paid some money for it and I'm terrified of fire, but still from time to time I find I have left it on. The light on the iron is small and very unnoticable. While reading on-line today something made me think of plugging the iron into the same socket with the lamp I use next to the ironing table. I used an extension cord for now, but I plan to get a surge protector for these plugs. Now when I leave the room, I have only one disconnect for both things and if the light is on, my iron is on, too. It won't happen again!
