It seems like the words "iron" and "dilemma" can oftentimes be used synonymously.
Two months ago I bought a basic dry iron from Home Depot that had some good reviews. I was discouraged by leaking, spitting irons, and irons that deposit a black sooty substance (from the steam holes) on my fabric. I thought a dry iron would do the trick since I oftentimes use a spray bottle with starch anyways.
Forward to today. The first thing I do when I go into my sewing room is turn my iron on. And today it refuses to heat. At all. I don't know why finding a good reliable iron seems to be the bane of my existence??
To Home Depot's credit, they are sending a new one to my house and waiving the shipping charges.
So please do tell, what is your favorite iron of all time? Lord knows I haven't found mine!
