Padding for ironing board

For the longest time, I marveled at the laundry shops’ ability to press shirts to a starched crisp glass-like finish, wishing I could do the same. It turns out that the reason I have failed to achieve the same wrinkle-free result was because my ironing board does not have sufficient padding. I don’t remember now what prompted me to do it, but one day I stacked up two folded up towels (total of four layers) on my ironing board as padding for some tasks, and was amazed at the result! I could get the same, perhaps even better, excellent result as the laundry shops! I have now made a new ironing board cover, with four layers of old towels underneath. 🙂
