JML Fast Fit Ironing Board Cover
Advantages: Looks good, fits easily, stays put, reduces ironing time
A friend told me a few years ago that she had a decent iron and ironing board cover and so she only ever had to iron one side of her clothing hence cutting her ironing time in half which certainly appealed to me. We needed a new iron so I decided it was worth getting a decent ironing board cover at the same time to test the theory.
The JML range is available in a number of different shops such as Tesco, Asda and the range but we bought our cover from Tesco and it cost about £5 which was a decent price but about double the price of Tesco's own product.
You can get the ironing board covers in a range of designs, it doesn't really matter what the cover is like in our house as the ironing board sits in the cupboard when not in use so it's never really seen by anyone. I personally like blue and purple colours so picked the cover which is pictured above with lots of different shades of purple in circles on a deep lilac background which I found rather pretty.
The ironing board cover came simply packaging in a partly see through plastic packet making it pretty easy to open too. On the front of the packaging you have the name of the company with the name of the product and the promise that it will fit almost any ironing board. I had chosen a wide ironing board when we had bought it thinking it would mean I could ironing more of the garment each time but had since found it was hard to find ironing board covers big enough for it so was a little sceptical that this cover would fit.
The cover has a strong elastic through the edges which hold it perfectly in place without any slipping and it was pretty easy to fit onto the ironing board being able to be used within a minute or so. It is a couple of years since I bought the cover so I can't tell you exact details but do remember that it stated that due to the material it is made from it helps to hold garments in place on the ironing board rather than them slipping off onto the floor and the padding underneath help reflect the heat back up therefore making ironing your clothes easier and less time consuming which I think is a lot to get from a £5 product.
I found that the cover certainly lived up to all its promises, it is easy to fit and it does stay still on the ironing board and it does help to hold clothing in place which is great for me as with young children I often have to go into the other room to stop the arguing and can leave my garments on the board with this cover. The cover is really thick and you can feel it is great quality and along with my iron that I bought at the same time I did find it was possible to just iron one side of the clothing and the other side sort of irons itself. I still had to iron both sides of jeans but it certainly saves on ironing time.
I used this ironing board cover for about 3 years and have only recently had to get rid of it, when it gets dirty you can wash it at 40 degrees although I do all my washing on either 30 or 60 degrees depending on what I am washing and I found it washed well at 30 degrees. My ironing board cover had started to lose its thickness which I think is acceptable after 3 years and was actually probably sped up in the process as my ironing board was breaking at the time and the metal was sticking through into the cover. I haven't replaced my ironing board yet but as soon as I do I will be buying another one of these covers as to me anything that reduces ironing time is a godsend.
Summary: I'll be buying another one
