As you can see from the image above I iron on my kitchen work top, the portable ironing board that I bought from IKEA is, in my opinion, the best thing since sliced bread where ironing is concerned. It is light weight to carry from A to B, I get no neck ache from using it as the work surface is the right height for me and I get no lumbar problems from having to carry it around - I LOVE IT!
The image above shows you how easy this board is to manouvere and use, it is very small, but not too small that I cannot iron shirts or jeans, yes I have a lot less space than I did with my previous ironing board but for me it was about the pain issues and not the work space available.
I kept my old board just in case I did not get on with the portable one I bought but since the day it came home I have not once used my old, heavy ironing board, I would recommend this to all my Scoliosis friends and family as one little pain saver in helping you do your daily chores - go out and buy one!
Tell me if you have any ways to help you iron or do you still lump about a heavy board like I used to?
