I couldn’t agree with you more John. I need a basic sturdy ironing board, really it is DH who uses it most for his shirts. And you are right he uses both ends.
I wish you worked for Polder. I have been looking for an ironing board for 10 years. I don’t want a bottle holder nor a rack on the end nor a rack on the bottom. Just a nice heavy normal size ironing board that stays up permanently in my laundry room. I want something with some weight to it. I bookmarked a style from Rowenta a couple years ago that weighed 38 pounds. When I came back to buy it. It was discontinued.
Why can’t someone make one decent quality ironing board?
