Well it doesn’t have to be Sundays, but with uniform and work clothes needed for the week ahead Sundays are one of my ironing days.
Its be a well documented fact on my personal Facebook timeline that I am no fan of Ironing …. In fact I lie it’s not that I dislike ironing its the fact i spend around 5 -6 hours a week ploughing through what can only be described as my own personal sweatshop … I kid you not!
So when I was offered a Philips SpeedCare Iron and challenged to use this instead of my current iron I was excited.
I was excited for 2 reasons .. the first being that anything that is going to save me time, sweat and frustration is good in my book and secondly that I may finally have some time to do something more exciting!
The SpeedCare generator iron with its 1.2L water tank and maximum steam ready within 2 minutes all sounded super fine to me … but how did it really do?
Firstly I have to say I have never used a steam generator style iron and when it came out the box I did begin to panic that it would be so big and cumbersome. However I have to say I take it all back .. the iron itself is smaller than my old standard iron and it was really easy to maneuver.
The steam … wow I love it .. it by far is more powerful than any other iron I have used, along with super quick heat up, for most item when using the steam setting I only had to iron one side of the item, as opposed to previously having to do both … I honestly am blown away with how quick I nipped through one of my 2 loads of ironing. Normally this amount of ironing takes 1.5-2 hours and I do 2 loads a week. This first load shown took me 53 minutes …. yep 53 minutes … I am one giddy kipper!
As some of my regular readers already know I am slightly OCD with cleaning and storage and I love this iron for the niffty little cable holder in the side of the machine! … so no need for wires everywhere either!
So having taken the Philips Steam Through Sundays Challenge not only am an Ironing with a smile on my face I am ready for school uniform Sundays! and I am even planning some family outings with National Heritage that I have put off for way too long because I have been too busy!
I am now reclaiming my time back, thanks Philips!
