Do you think washing and ironing is dreary? Well, in that case you haven't taken a look at Lakeland's range of innovative products. Well, OK I still think it is dreary but Lakeland's selection of wonderful products certainly makes life easier. Whatever my household troubles Lakeland always seems to have a product able to solve my dilemma. I LOVE Lakeland.
My washing is cheerily blowing in the wind and it's all thanks to Lakeland. Here are the dilemmas I had that Lakeland managed to solve with its products:
Dilemma number 1:
My ironing board was too heavy and I always managed to jam my fingers in the catch. The ironing board was bumpy and this produced creases and lumps in my clothes. How did I solve this problem?
Leifheit Airboard Fusion Ironing board. (£69.99 from www.lakeland.co.uk)
As my ironing board is on display against the wall each and every day whilst not in use I was first of all looking for something with an attractive ironing board cover. So the first thing I noticed was the beautiful sky blue cover with butterflies, it had a dreamy feel, was soothing on the eye and looked great in my kitchen. Opening the ironing board was a breeze and the lightweight board meant that I didn't have to struggle to open it. For me the key thing about this ironing board was how much easier it made ironing as the thermo-plastic material which it is made from reflects the steam which makes ironing much speedier. No more sweltering over a hot iron, as it seems you only have to pass the iron over gently and clothing is pressed so much easier.
- Clothes need much less ironing, as the way they are hung on the hanger (Hook-Up) is much the same as how they would fall on the human form.
- Takes much less time to get the washing in if it rains.
- No peg-marks.
This was solved by using Lakeland's Soft Grip Pegs (£3.99 for 20). I've been using these for a few months now and not one single one has snapped. Besides that they don't leave any marks on the clothing and the summer colours that they are available in, make it a pleasure watching the clothes blowing on the line. It might sound trivial, but I am sure you will agree that it's often the little things that make such a huge difference. You also don't need to worry about getting splinters of wood in your fingers.
