Ironing boards are not likely to be a general topic of excitement and stimulation in your life. They certainly aren't in mine!!
If you count yourself among the "ironing boreds" you will want to be able to get some ironing
tips and techniques for managing the ironing chores so that they are done as quickly as possible and you
can get on with something more interesting.
The best ironing tip I can give you is to get someone else to do it!
If that is not possible or probable
then follow these ironing tips to get
the best result possible and make your ironing chores go a little easier.
A lot of ironing is unnecessary. You can avoid this chore all together if clothing is promptly removed from the dryer.
Leaving clothing items in the dryer will allow wrinkles to set as the fabrics are still warm from the drying process.
So to avoid it altogether just make sure that clothing is removed, folded,
or placed on clothes hangers as soon
as it is finished drying.

Home Storage Ideas for Your Ironing Supplies
The problem with the traditional collapsible ironing board model is that you have to store it somewhere, wrestle with it to get it out, then set it up, use it, then put it away again. If you do not put it away you know for sure that it will become an instant horizontal surface for you (and others) to put stuff on and before you know it you have another pile of clutter!
Let's face it, regular free standing models that we are all used to are just not that user friendly. But the good news is that there are a lot of other variations to choose from and
many good home storage ideas that work for large and small spaces alike.
You might not be transformed from an ironing bored to an ironing enthusiast,
but these products will help you to use your space more efficiently and make the boring task of pressing your clothes just a little more user friendly.
If you have the option of new construction or even a renovation try wall mount ironing boards.
The cabinet can even be recessed into the wall. This is an efficient use of space.
Some wall models fold up into the cabinet while a portable folding ironing board can be stored in a drawer or even under your bed.
Another one of the great home storage ideas for this boring chore is to get rid of the "board" altogether. You can iron anywhere with a
heat proof blanket for use on any flat surface.
You won't have any trouble storing this or setting it up either!
But you will need good home storage ideas like these to make sure your ironing equipment
is safely stowed away and ready for the next time you need to use it.
Even if you are one of the "ironing boreds", getting this dastadly chore done quickly and efficiently will leave you more time for other things that might just be a little more fun!
Using the space on the back of the door is always a recommended storage idea here at www.organization-makes-sense.com because - well it just makes good sense!
Anytime you can store and use an item in the same spot you will be more organized.
