On my quest to become the housewife of dreams I have been using many new appliances around the home, you all read about my new Dyson a few weeks ago and how much I loved it I thought it was about time I shared another Home Love with you all. I have to admit I’ve never really been one to do the ironing, I always relied on my trusty tumble dryer to smooth out all the creases for me but it got to a point where I thought ‘Liza you really need to stop looking like a scruff and making Vinny and Mark look like scruffs too’ so on with the ironing I went although my old iron used to stick to all of my clothes and make things increasingly difficult for me.. I know your probably thinking ‘Really it’s not that hard’ but I like things to be as simple as they can be especially when it’s a chore I hate.
So when I received my new Philips PerfectCare Expert Pressurised Steam Generator/Iron I was actually really excited to get going, as you can see this is pretty impressive to look at. There’s a detachable water tank which allows you to fill with water under the tap with a 1.5 Litre capacity which will let you iron for up to 2 hours before running out.. I never iron for that long so it lasts ages! There’s also a 260g steam boost which gets rid of the most stubborn creases, I always find jeans and thicker materials so hard to iron but not with this little beauty.
The iron itself is ready to use in just 2 minutes although I’ve used it in less than that time and it’s still worked well, what I love most of all about this iron is that there are no dials, nothing to adjust and you can switch up any clothing and fabrics as much as you like… seriously I’ve used this on jeans then switched straight over to a silk came top and it’s adjusted itself! I have no idea how it does it but it’s pretty amazing and pretty much fool proof!
A couple of things that could be improved are the cords, I kind of wish it was cordless but you can’t have it all. I think the power cord storage could be better, it’s a bit fiddly to put back together but apart from that I think that’s about the only negative I have. I really enjoy ironing these days and I’m glad to say we now have lovely creaseless clothes, finally!
What’s your least favourite job to do around the house? Ironing has got much better for me these days so I think I’d have to say cooking!
