Oki i need help here - the Iron I have is the bane of my life..... Im not worlds best man at ironing (is there even one?) at the best of times but when an iron chucks out limescale at my clothes and burns it into them its never a good thing.

Can someone please recommend me an iron. Cheapness isnt the issue - i just want an easy life and sharp clothing ;)

Any help appreciated....

I have one of these http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-GC4340-Azur-Premium-Steam/dp/B000291PVC and I found it very good, even just in case you do melt your clothes it's very easy to clean because of the non-stick plate. It gets also quite hot so it makes ironing cotton shirts that little bit easier.

BTW the link is not for the cheapest I just provided you the link so that you can see it.

Hang them up in the bathroom - The steam from the bath/shower will get rid of the creases and save on ironing!! :thumbsup:

The last iron I owned was a Philips and it actually exploded in my hand whilst using it. It made a 50p size hold through my favourite T-shirt I was ironing.

So be warned.

You can't go wrong with a decent heavy-weight Morphy Richards. They know what ironing is all about.

Philips build quality is teh sux. Avoid.

Looks ideal - one of those super steam ones thats meant to make ironing easy...... sceptical, but worth a go?

We have one of these steam generator types (different make) & it is excellent. Ironing time is halved & results are great,even hard to iron items look much better.:thumbsup:

Have never ironed a shirt. If taken straight out of washer and into tumble and immediately hung up, they just don't need ironing. Same with many items.

Worse in summer because natural drying means the iron sees the light of day!!

Something that is less hassle and not quite an iron but does the same job and is super quick would be a steamer for clothes. You simply hang up your garment and the steamer hose you run close to the garment and the hot steam takes out the creases really swiftly,they must cost a few £100 quid tho thats only downfall,but I know they very good so my partner says who works for charity shop.

If you don't want limescale in future, make sure you don't use tap water. If you must use water make sure it is distilled but the best for no lime scale is the bottled iron water (think it has some sort of softener in it )you can buy in the supermarkets. A bottle costs around 50p and lasts for months (well it does if you only iron what is absolutely necessary).

tip to reduce limescale diposites , i use tap water but when i have finished i hold the iron over the sink (when hot) and press the steam button 10 times this forces the limescale out, i have a regular iron which i paid about £20 been using it for 4 years no problems , after use always empty the water out and leave the filler cap open so it can dry out.;-)
