Strengths and weaknesses of the Brabantia ironing board cover

You can iron on any flat surface but a better solution would be to use ironing tables for an easier and smoother ironing. If you have a Brabantia ironing board, it is usually fitted with a Brabantia ironing cover. Find out the advantages and disadvantages of using these covers.

Advantages of Brabantia covers

Quality fabrics Brabantia ironing boards are sturdy and versatile. Likewise, ironing board covers are made from quality fabrics which will not get singed at the slightest application of heat. Even if you let a hot iron rest on it briefly, the fabric will not leave burnt stains or marks. These covers are great because they do not attract moulds and mildew. Steam passes through the fabric and despite high humidity, there is no collection of water on the covers. Unlike other cloth covers, Brabantia uses materials which are made from "metallised cotton" making ironing faster. They are also washable. Snug fit The covers are well fitted to the ironing board ensuring a smooth, bump-free ironing. You do not have to think about annoying lumps or creases on the fabric which will mar your ironing experience. Convenient cord fastener Each board cover is fitted with a cord fastener making it easy to remove and attach. Attractive designs and colours Ironing need not be boring with the diverse choices of fabrics and colours. They are easy to blend in your home environment. Letter tag codes Brabantia ironing board covers are distinct. There are letter codes alongside the Brabantia logo. If you need to purchase a replacement or additional cover, simply match the code with those which are available in the shops. You need not worry that the covers will not fit your ironing board. Letters begin from A until E. A board cover classified as A is a small ironing board cover which measures 110 x 30 cm. Large ironing board covers are D or E. They are 135 x 45 cm. The biggest one is an F with a size of 135 x 49 cm.

Disadvantages of Brabantia covers

Water or steam seeps through Since the fabric covers allow steam to pass through them, it is inevitable that steam converts into little puddles of water on the floor. It occurs when the jet steam is used often during intensive ironing. Difficult to refasten For first timers, pulling the cord fastener can be tricky. However, once you get the hang of it, removing and refastening the fabric cover should be straightforward.
