Pah ... that's not an iron ... it's got no weight to it and why do you need to stand it like that ... get yourself a decent ironing board with a heat resistant plate at the end.
Now this is an iron.
I find it rather scary how much Tony knows about irons
Ex-army. We both know a lot about irons...

It's like the scene in Crocodile Dundee when a mugger pulls a knife on Mick Dundee.
"Ah mate that's not a knife. This a knife".
Dundee pulls out machete from back of jeans.
What people forget is that the iron is only a tiny part of it ... you need a good ironing board that tapers off to give a long tight wedge to allow you to do the long thin bits (getting into jackets sleeves) as well as having a cover that does not soak up too much of the water / steam which can end up causing stains on whites. A good solid board that will allow you to put a lot of pressure on it too ... none of this cheap chipboard.
And it needs to have a built in stand ... and then there are the extra bits. A decent Irish linen tea towel, and a thinner cotton hanky. These are used to cover trousers / jackets so they don't go shiny. And never use the built in spray ... cough up for a decent demister from a reputable gardening centre. This gives a more even spray and you should always remember to lightly spray the more creased items about 5-10 minutes before you iron them.
I'll get my coat.
Oh yeah ... before anyone thinks I take ironing too seriously ... I am nothing compared to this lot

Though I suppose if they had Jackie Chan as their fight instructor then an ironing board could be quite deadly.
erm ... do I mention at this point that we did have a drill session involving ironing boards? Or that we also had self defense sessions using tables, chairs ... and yes ... you've guessed it ... ironing boards.
I can imagine the scene. Scottish instructor, staring down his students
" This is a simple domestic iron iron board. In the hands of your mum a tool for crisp shirts. In the hands of service man, an implement of death"
Wow ... you met Sargeant Summerhayes?
Can't say that I have. My sartorial elegance may have suffered but I get the feeling that my mental health is all the better for it.
Was anyone brave enough to make Jimi Hendrix references
Well I learnt something! - not that I intend doing any more ironing yuo should understand! :P [does this make me a closet dweller? ]
You forgot to mention a good quality starch and bar of soap for those nice creases - until you stood in a rainstorm that isOriginally Posted by GrumbleDook
