Help! I need a clothes iron. I bought a Eureka, and I hate the thing.

It's waaaay too big and clumsy to use, plus the steam shoots out really forcefully without actually smoothing wrinkles! Don't ask my why that is . . . I want a smaller, plainer iron that's more old-fashioned, but still gets hot and steamy enough for the toughest denim.

Any suggestions?

3. I recommend this iron for your needs

No bells and whistles, but it gets hot and the surface is smooth.

7. HMMMM. This looks exactly like what I want! Thank you! Lots of places that

used to sell irons don't any more.

Thank you!

2. What is this "clothes iron" device of which you speak?



Sorry, can't help you there. I think I have one somewhere; haven't seen it lately. I'm retired and I no longer have to iron any damn thing.

5. When my youngest was about 5, she was in the attic with me. Permanent press had come out

a couple years before that so I replaced all my kids clothes with perm. press.
She saw the ironing board and said "What's that?" I told her you don't want to know.

8. LOL! I know I'm weird. The only household chore I actually enjoy is IRONING. This

fact makes most people's heads explode. Really, I should start an ironing service.

I don't mind housecleaning; I don't mind laundry; but I FRIKKIN' HATE COOKING. My head explodes when I hear someone say they love cooking, it's so relaxing (WTF?), it's a beloved hobby, I can hardly wait to cook for my dinner party Friday . . .

4. I'm also looking for a smaller steam iron.....

....mine is too heavy and hurts my shoulder. I have a travel iron, but it doesn't steam.
