Iron Board Maintenance Guide
To maintain an ironing board, you need to focus mostly on the cover since it’s the area your clothes will come in contact with. The cover needs to be cleaned regularly otherwise your fresh clothes can end up with unwanted stains after ironing.
At first, remove the cover from the board. If the cover is machine-washable then your job is easier as you can just throw it in the washer with some detergent. But do not use any harsh cleaning products. If your cover cannot be machine-washed, you need to take matters into your hands. You need to clean the areas where stains and spots are visible from regular ironing. Make a solution of water, vinegar and baking soda. Use the paste on the areas you want to clean and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Then take a soft sponge to scrub at the areas and use a damp cloth to clean them afterward. Whether you wash the cover in the machine or by hand, let it air dry. Putting it in the dryer might damage the fabric.
Meanwhile, you can start cleaning the ironing board. Just take a damp sponge or a soft cloth to wipe over the surface. Wipe on the bottom side of the board as well as the legs. You can also use a water and vinegar solution on the board and its legs once in a while. It will prevent them from rusting. Once the cover is completely dried off, put it on the board. Make sure both the board and the cover is dry every time before you put them back together as covering a damp board can cause mold to appear. Clean both the ironing board and the cover regularly to keep any dust from transferring to your clothes while ironing.
Always check your ironing board for any damage or rusting. If you notice any, try to replace the parts as soon as possible. If it’s beyond repair, replace the board as soon as possible.
Many people might consider ironing board as an unnecessary product since they claim to iron on any flat surface covered with a towel. But once you use an ironing board, you will see the appeal and realize its efficiency. Pick out a board from the list above and notice the difference in your clothes.
