Since nearly everyone hates ironing, it’s an accomplishment when a task so despised becomes acceptable. And while it may never rank as a universal favorite, clearly the designers of Brabantia ironing boards have devised products to finally keep ironing off the most dreaded list. How do Brabantia ironing boards make users forget that they are, after all, ironing?
While wrinkled clothing is distasteful, it’s not surprising that many shoppers avoid garment labels that even hint of an iron being needed. One must throw caution to the wind when investing in 100% cotton or linen items that will surely require “pressing” to make it through two wearings, let alone an actual washing and drying experience. However, such fabrics are breathable, comfortable and look great when crease-and-wrinkle-free, thus manufacturers cannot be blamed for being honest. Luckily, with a Brabantia ironing board, the dilemma is resolved, the board a secret weapon reducing fears that something can’t be worn more than once without requiring drudgery.
Brabantia ironing boards are designed to make the job easier. Built sturdily, with safety locks and non-slip legs, they erase thoughts of collapsing while in use or pinched fingers during set-up. Some offer a built-in iron rest, keeping the iron from making singe marks on the cover’s cute designer print.
Moreover, to eliminate further wrinkling of just-ironed clothes, some Brabantia ironing boards provide a smart alternative: a rack attachment, making it a snap to hang finished pieces while ironing. Besides preventing wrinkling, maybe Brabantia has decided that users will enjoy ironing too much to waste time taking pieces to the closet!
Brabantia ironing boards come in various prices, with sizes to accommodate different spaces. Not every laundry room is spacious, nor is that necessary with a Brabantia ironing board. It ensures ironing can happily progress just about anywhere. What’s more, even though all models can be closet-stored, it wouldn’t be unusual to see them left standing, covers changed to suit the season or the mood. That’s what happens when ironing becomes fun again!

Brabantia ironing board covers are an answer to a problem known to everyone who has ironed clothes: After much use, even the best-made of ironing boards will show some surface damage. When this happens, the iron will not slide across the surface as easily and smoothly as it should. In time the fabric gets frayed and starts to wear out.
This can be avoided with Brabantia ironing board covers. These disposable covers, held on by a pull string running around the edge, provide a uniformly smooth surface for ironing. As the cover ages and begins to lose its tautness, the pull string allows the user to tighten it and maximize its life. When it begins to fray, the cover can be thrown away and replaced.
Brabantia ironing board covers are attractive as well as practical, giving a cheerful, bright look to an otherwise dull job. Bringing a little color into the laundry room can certainly lift the mood of the place.
As with all their other products, Brabantia ironing board covers offer an assortment of options. There is a choice of materials ranging from 100 per cent cotton to cotton with a foam layer or even a heat-reflecting metalized layer. Each of these provides a slightly different ironing surface for maximum performance and user comfort.
To make sure each customer gets the cover to fit their ironing board, Brabantia ironing boards covers have color-coded labels. Of course, the package also specifies the dimensions of the board the cover will fit, so if the labels is not present for some reason, the customer can still be sure they’re getting the right one.
Brabantia ironing board covers are a great way to prevent wear and get the longest possible life from a board, and they can bring that splash of color to a space that certainly needs it. Of course, usefulness and great looks are only what one would expect from Brabantia, Europe’s leading innovator in housewares.

There are tons of reasons why food storage should be something that everyone considers, whether it be preparing for potential emergencies or just to try and save some money by buying in bulk. Regardless of why you're storing, it's important to understand some basics.
The general rule should be to store 25 pounds of grains per person per month. Grains that should be stored include oatmeal, pasta, long-grain rice, barley, flour and cornmeal. Beans, peas and other legumes should be stored at five pounds per person per month. Canned goods are also great because like these other foods, they can be stored for longer periods of time without going bad.
