How The Boardmann Extra Wide Ironing Board Got Me Excited About Doing The Ironing

It is fair to say that in our household I am the resident geek, I love tech, I love gadgets, but it’s fair to say I never thought I would get excited about an ironing board! However, I was actually wrong and in fact I have been so impressed with my new purchase that I was motivated to write this review. So without giving too much away, it is fair to say that my new ironing board has been a game changer, and I cannot recommend it enough. So without further ado let me explain my journey to ironing paradise.

The Ironing Board is Broken

The first part of my journey began when my old ironing board gave way as I was halfway through a particularly large pile of ironing. Because of the way my brain is wired, I decided that rather than just pop to the supermarket and buy a cheap ironing board, and probably as an excuse to get out of doing some more ironing that day, I would begin the research process, as to the best ironing board to buy.

An Extra Wide Ironing Board

Although truth be told I am no expert in Ironing boards, and didn’t really know where to begin my research it quickly became apparent that the most important feature of a modern ironing board was one that was extra wide. The reason for this is pretty obvious once you think about it, but then again like myself, I don’t suppose many people put a lot of thought into the manufacture of ironing boards. The key benefit that an extra wide ironing board delivers is that it can drastically decrease the amount of time it takes to do your ironing.

This is because you have a larger surface area upon which to iron. In fact studies by Boardmann, show that it can slash your ironing time in half. For the average family that could save hours and hours of ironing time every year, which in my mind means that it will pay for itself over and over. I have now owned the Boardmann extra wide board for approximately six months and my findings concur with the advertising spiel, my ironing time has been cut in half.

Special Design For Shirts and Blouses

Shirts and blouses are, I would imagine, two of the most frequently ironed pieces of clothing, and they also tend to slide off the ironing board onto the floor, which can add to the frustration or ironing. This is something that the design engineers at Boardmann have clearly identified as an issue because they have created a truly unique shape at the end of their extra wide ironing board that fits shirts and blouses perfectly. It is truly like having a second pair of hands which hold the shirt or blouse in the exact position required.

This was not something that I have ever considered previously, but I have to confess that having got used to it, I don’t think I could ever use a traditional shaped ironing board ever again, so kudos to the design team at Boardmann.

Sturdy and Well Built

Whilst it would be fair to say that no ironing board should have to support excessive amounts of weight, an ironing board is a tool that is likely to get a lot of usage on a weekly basis. One of the key differentiators between a less expensive ironing board and one that falls within a higher price bracket is the quality of the materials used in the manufacture of the ironing board. With the Boardmann extra large ironing board, it is easy to see, feel and appreciate the quality of the materials used. The company provides as standard a 3-year warranty, but in my opinion provided you look after this board, and store it correctly then it could and should last you for many years, making it an even better investment.

A Special Area That You Can Stand Your Iron On

Another feature that I have grown to love is the large steam iron rest which is an integral part of the ironing board. Although this is beneficial for every type of iron it really comes into its own if you invest in one of the large steam irons which are typically a lot bigger than a traditional iron, whilst also being somewhat heavier. With standard ironing boards, the larger commercial-sized steam irons end up taking up some of your ironing space, and indeed some ironing boards may struggle to cope with the additional weight of those types of irons. Boardmann have thought of this and it is this attention to detail which combined with all of the other small touches has made my ironing experience significantly better.

A Mesh Back

One of the secrets of a good and powerful iron is the amount of steam it can deliver. However, it is critical when ironing that this steam has the opportunity to pass through your clothes and then escape. When steam gets trapped between the ironing board and the clothes it can not only have a detrimental effect on the ironing process, but in addition, it can trap the moisture in the clothing, which is not a desirable outcome. The Boardmann extra wide iron solves this by having a mesh back, which in turn enables the steam to escape easily after having done its job proficiently.

Am I the world’s best ironer? – Certainly not. Do I look forward to doing the ironing on a Sunday afternoon? – Absolutely not!! However, I can say without any doubt that the Boardmann Extra Wide ironing board has been a game changer in our house. It might not be the cheapest ironing board you can buy but it has saved me many hours of ironing already, and I am confident it will last for many years to come. I never thought I would be writing a testimonial about an ironing board of all things, but I am so impressed with it that I felt compelled to.

My advice to anyone in the market for a new ironing board is to go straight to the Boardmann website and place your order today. I can pretty much guarantee that you will not regret it!
