Britain are world record holders, for Ironing underwater

Bookmark and Share

It has come to our attention that the Britain holds the world record for ironing underwater. “Visibility was poor down there” says one of the divers. We love to iron, but no volunteers here for the underwater variety. (When you think, they could have sent it out to The Ironing Board).

Some viewers may find scenes of men ironing to be distressing. For ironing therapy, don’t run up the RNLI “I am in need of assistance” flag… simply give us a call today.

We will pay the VAT difference

increased taxes need not mean increased creases

We're pleased to announce that we continue to hold our prices until at least this summer, in spite of the recent VAT increase.

We have three important things to say about this...

  • We will bring you the same great service, eye for detail and customer commitment.
  • This is in line with our ongoing commitment to reduce ironing and laundry misery.
  • We have held our prices since 2009.

We clean up after hot & spicy Doritos Dodgeball action!

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!

Ex-press service!

“It was 5.30pm, my business stay in the area was extended, I had no clean shirts,

I spotted the shop at Snaresbrook station and casually requested that my 4 shirts be washed and ironed for 9.30am the following morning. The request raised a laugh and I was asked if there was a ‘candid camera’.

But they came up ‘trumps’. I had a text at 8.00am to say my shirts were ready. I may never be in the area again, but if The Ironing Board can provide a once off customer with this level of service, their regular customers are so lucky!
Thank you”
