Bit of a useless question perhaps.

But still, how much should I spend on one, is a basic ten quidder Ok or should I be spending 30 quid or something. Or if you have any reccomendations or 'standard' ones that most people have, shoot.

Cheers.

Get a good iron. It'l last longer it'l make sure you don't have to go over the same area a few times to get all the creases out, hotter the better. If you can offord one, get a 'Steam Generator' iron, something like this; http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Produ...8/c_3/3|cat_10198398|Steam+irons|10198399.htm

Some lad in my troop had one similar to that and *text deleted**text deleted* me it was the dogs bollox.

Experience suggests you spend between 20 to 30 quid, but not more. Whilst it maybe great to have a super-duper expensive one, the more the cost, the higher the chances of it getting knocked over or dropped- it's called the inverse square or sometimes Murphy's Law.

Decided just to get one when I was out, bought a ten quid one from Argos *text deleted*, there was a 4 quid one too also, I was quite tempted. :eek:

F paying 80 for an Iron *text deleted*, maybe I'll get it in RT when I've got more doe to splash about.

Cheers.

As long as it isn't a travel iron, it's heavy, gives a good blast of steam & can squirt/spay a water mist, it will be fine.

you want a iron what has steam and can produce a lot of steam and heat, the hotter the better

I'd just go to comet or something like that. I think they recommend one under 50 quid.

Haha I'm using the £4 Argos iron at the moment I think. Bloody *text deleted**text deleted*e, keeps shorting the house electrics if I put too much water in and spews out something like lime scale. Cheapo for uni I guess.
