Can you guess what this sweet little puppy did over the weekend?
I guess I got a little lax in my checking, because the next thing I knew, my iron had two cords instead of one! I don't keep the iron plugged in, luckily, so she wasn't in danger of getting shocked.
So, off to Wal Mart I went yesterday to buy a new iron. There are some things I will repair the cords on, but an iron is not one of them. It just pulls too much juice. To tell you how serious I was about buying a replacement iron, I must have spent 20 minutes comparing the selection Wal Mart has! And, surprisingly enough, there is a nice selection to choose from.
I immediately gravitated to the Black and Decker models because I trust that name. It came down to the home professional steam model, or the basic model that looked retro. I liked the retro iron because of it's weight, but I was also concerned about it's weight being a negative factor if I had a lot of ironing to do. The sole plate on the home professional model was larger than the retro, plus it pulled more electricity, so I'm hoping it gets hotter. Sorry I don't have a picture of it to post just yet.
