Morphy ‘Innovators’ review – Are We Nearly There Yet Mummy?, Shirtmaster ironing board and Configrip iron
Laura (Are We Nearly There Yet Mummy?) has been testing out our Shirtmaster ironing board and Comfigrip iron on her HUGE post holiday ironing pile. After eventually working out which way it’s supposed to be used, she found it a massive timesaver. You can read her thoughts below or click here to read it on her blog.
(note: We would not recommend using the shirtmaster or comfigrip while under the influence of gin, or any other drink for that matter)
Some people are hardcore ironers. They iron pants, pyjamas and sheets. They enjoy ironing. Then, there are those who don’t iron at all.
I fall between these two categories. I spend about two to three hours a week trying to get it all done only to find the pile has grown again, It is like The Magic Porridge Pot.
We went on holiday in August and when we came back the ironing pile was as big as my youngest child. Obviously sensing my horror Morphy Richards sent me THE biggest ironing board I have ever seen.
For two weeks I used it the wrong way round and wondered what all the fuss was about. The Husband even pointed out that he thought I had it the wrong way around. Being slightly stubborn I told him I knew what I was doing. One night when he was out I swapped it round and found that in fact I had been doing it wrong all along. I have yet to tell him cough.
It turns out though that it serves a purpose. The Morphy Richards Shirtmaster is an awesome beast. Due to it’s shape it makes ironing just that bit quicker and ironing shirts and tops has never been easier. It also has an extra tall person setting on it which is good for my back.
Most importantly it comes with a place to stand your gin. Everyone should drink gin … especially when the pile of ironing is higher than your youngest offspring. Aaaaaargh.
The Comfigrip Iron is a fine compliment to the Shirtmaster. It glides beautifully and it really is comfortable to hold. A really good feature is ‘the bit where you pour the water’ (which is a technical term) … it’s extra wide which stops any spillage in the village.
The lovely people at Morphy Richards have given me an offer for all you excited ironing fans out there;
