How to iron a shirt without an iron?
Ironing is one of those chores that lots of people either seem to love or hate. For those of us that see ironing as a necessary evil, a group of designers at Siemens have come up with what they think is the solution to our ironing problems.
The ‘dressman’ claims to deliver perfectly pressed shirts in no time at all. At $1,000 a time it’s not the most cost effective of options, but all the user has to do is pull a freshly washed shirt over the mannequin and wrinkles are smoothed out instantaneously. What do you think? Could this be a welcome addition to your home?
Our design team at Morphy Richards might not be working on such futuristic products, but being ‘more innovative’ is still one of the most important aspects of product development. We know that lots of us don’t like to spend valuable free time on getting through the ironing pile, that’s why we have been developing products which make ironing as quick and simple as possible. The innovative Morphy Richards Shirtmaster Ironing Board and the Morphy Richards Intellidome steam generator have been shown to cut ironing time by up to half in our rigorous testing. That means if you spend two hours a week ironing with a traditional steam iron and ironing board, using a Shirtmaster or Intellidome could save you over two whole days of ironing effort a year!
If you fancy seeing the ‘dressman’ in action, it is on display at Sheffield Hallam University.
