I have a Polti steam cleaner with an iron attachment, so best of both worlds. It has a large water chamber so lasts absolutely ages. Can steam clean everywhere, and cuts ironing time in half.

One of the best items ever bought! :-)

A rotary iron is the answer.We have a Miele . Three gites sleeping 17 creates a lot of laundry .

The rotary iron has greatly lessened the workload  (for the wife ! )

If yoy can afford it buy a rotary ironer, we have used one for the past 25 years.

Braun is the one of choice, incredibly reliable and efficient.

Look on ebay uk there are usually some for sale there.

I would definitely recommend one for bed linen, and mine works wonders on heavy fabrics like jeans and cushion covers which need that extra flattening.

You might find it helpful to buy a new ironing board specially suited to steam irons other wise you end up with the pattern from the frame on the ironong.  I think it's something to do with the steam not passing through the board.

Also think carefully where you want to position the tank when ironing, and buy one with a long cable, because it takes up a lot of the ironong board, so I leave it on the work top and place the iron back on it to give me an empty board.

I know this isn't really answering your query but I use an electric linen press for bed linen. Even comes up to my sister's exacting standards. Bit fiddly to use on shirts,  but brilliant on ' flat' items . . . and you sit down to use it.

Hi,

 

They are excellent and save a great deal of time.

So the wife tells me!

Worth every penny, buy the best you can afford
