To buy a new iron or not? There's nothing really wrong with my iron other than it doesn't really press seams down as much as I'd like it too. I was using a friend's beat up old iron and it was perfect. No "hump" over the seams like mine does. That's the only thing that aggravates me..the "hump" as I call it. Where you press the seams to one side and you get a "hump" instead of a flat seam. That small edge that needs to go over just a little more. I know it exists because my friend's iron didn't leave a "hump". It was a beautiful pressed seam.
My iron gets really hot. It doesn't shut off so I can use it all day. It doesn't leak. It gets wrinkles out. I really don't have any complaints other than the "hump" problem. The problem is that I don't know why I get the "hump". Am I causing the "hump"? Does anyone else get the "hump" or is it a figment of my imagination?
How do I know that if I buy a new iron, I won't have this problem? Have you taken a look at the irons out there? Talk about overload. Apparently my friends basic Black And Decker doesn't exist anymore as a scoured the internet looking for one. Everything is now "space age" funky with all kinds of stuff that I'll never use.
I almost sound like Dr. Suess with the "hump". LOL
