I just bought a new iron. The old one died a horrible death. After about a year of having a duct tape “patch” on the side to keep the water from leaking, and having to push the ON button 5 or so times for it to actually turn on, I laid it to rest.
It was indeed a sad day. I am frugal. I make no attempts to hide that fact. Everyone knows I will try to get the absolute most use out of any product, and try to get the best value for every dollar I spend. It pained me so to replace a still “working” appliance. The Hubs made me. He really made me. He told me we were not leaving the store without one and that I had to throw the fire hazard out. He also told me that if I didn’t pick one, that he would. I surely didn’t want him to pick one for me, so, needless to say, I spent the money for a good one…even though it hurt!!!
Along with being a little thrifty, I am also a little nutty about reading instructions for everything I purchase. I was skimming through the instruction manual and I came across this little gem of information to share with you.
I laughed alone, and loudly. This warning was put there because someone DID try to iron their clothes while they were on.
No one ever had to tell me that!!!!!!!
