What the heck?
How many irons have I gone through in the past 3 months? If your guess is FIVE, you’d be correct. Granted, they’re irons that I’ve had sitting around for years so it was time to see which ones worked and get rid of the ones that don’t but wouldn’t you think that by chance, I’d come across one that would work for more than a few weeks? These weren’t irons that I put up because they no longer worked; they’re irons that I would be out of town and need an iron and buy one, or I’d see one on sale and buy it or I needed one upstairs, one downstairs, one at one house, etc. There has to be an iron out there somewhere that is right for me but how many frogs do I have to kiss before I get that perfect iron?
As far as I have noticed without really digging, there are 3 more irons here and then I may have to fork over some cash and buy one. But, good grief . . what iron would I get? Don’t tell me . . I’m just going to close my eyes and pick one!
This could explain my problem. My iron is on from about 7 a.m. til 10 p.m. most every day. This one that is leaking now doesn’t have auto shut-off and I really should be using one with auto shut-off because I run upstairs to check on something, planning to be back in just a second and I’m up there 4 hours . . with a hot iron wasting electricity.
