We clean up after hot & spicy Doritos Dodgeball action!

Image of a Dodgeball team at the Doritos website, we laundered their kits!

The Ironing Board is cleaning up after the action at Doritos latest promotion... Dodgeball!

It’s a sport of grit, determination, focus and, well, getting out of the way. Celebs including Jodie Marsh are appearing in front of the cannons and the web-public gets the opportunity to fire!

When the chips are down (or your shirt is smothered in spicy salsa) call The Ironing Board for emergency laundry and Ironing assistance.

See the live action at the Doritos Dodgeball website.

If you’ve had a traumatic dodgeball experience (or a stained shirt) contact a StopIroning Counsellor today

Can I have a few tips for perfect ironing results?

Row of hirts on hangers (picture)

Unsurprisingly, this is one of the questions we're asked most often...

The finish we achieve is always dependent on the care taken with the laundering of the batch.

  • Avoid over-loading the washing machine, clothes need room to agitate.
  • Remove clothes from washing machine as soon as the cycle completes or put on ‘rinse hold’ until you return.
  • A more environmentally way to dry your shirts is to hang them on hangers directly from the washing machine. This also helps the finished product when ironed. We accept shirts on hangers at our shops or on our vans.
  • Avoid letting clothes over-dry. Clothes are more difficult to iron when they are over-dried. Try to remove from dryer as soon as they are just dry.
  • Avoid over-filling the dryer. The dryer should be half full to allow the air to circulate.
  • Use the high and low temperature control, high for heavy garments and low for shirts etc. If possible, fold the clothes as they are removed from the dryer.
  • I hope this helps – and remember – if you're too busy, we'll take care of the laundry for you!

Great relationship

“My family has had an excellent service from The Steam Team at the Ironing Board for the past eight years.

Nothing is a problem for them; they deal with all the changes to our routines in a very calm and professional manner. Having our ironing done by The Ironing Board is one of the best decisions we ever made. We appreciate the service they provide for us and we know that we are important to them.

Great relationship. Go for it!”
