    Think mines made by Phillips. Is that the ironing equivalent of Gelert?

    I haven't actually used an iron for 18 months. If you hang the clothes up quickly the creases are so small why am i writing this?

    Actually for about 3 years I had one of those magic boxes in the airing cupboard.

    Put dirty washing in...3 days later clean & ironed clothes reappear in wardrobe.

    OW!
