I had toyed with the idea of a steam press once before, but common sense prevailed and I resisted. I ithought about it again recently when I started to reorganise the gues bedroom so that it would also include my sewing area, and I put in some Ikea Kallax units....the top of which looked perfect for a steam press, and a steam press would be great for sewing. I decided to keep an eye out for a suitable second hand press.
Today one popped up reasonably locally, at a reasonable price. Cheap enough for me to buy it, try it, and sell it again if it didn't work out. I bought it and collected it this afternoon.
It was 5 years old, used once.
Hmm. Not so sure about that. I'm guessing it was stored without a box somewhere. Still, it's cleaned up now and I've ordered a new pad and cover (which I had planned to do anyway). I haven't been able to try it, the original cover was clean, but smelled heavily of Febreeze. The foam was a bit ropey.
Hope the blummen thing works!
