Ok so when asking for a maid for Christmas, I may have been stretching the boundaries a little.
It would be nice to have my maid-duties time cut in half though.
Who wouldn’t want to spend half the amount of time they do cleaning and organising??
Wouldn’t you agree??
So when the lovely people at Phillips had a read of Common Chaos Chronicle, picked their jaws up off the floor after realizing how much washing we actually do have, they offered to send me a product that could possible save me BUCKET LOADS of time…
And who am I to say no to that!!!!
So in no time a monstrous packaged arrived on my doorstep.
It was in fact the Philips PerfectCare with Optimal Temp Ironing System.
Sounds rather fancy really. Really fancy to someone who’s last iron was purchased at the op-shop for $2.00, and likes to leave marks on everything it touches.
So here’s the thing, this Iron automatically knows how hot it should be depending on the fabric you’re ironing. Seriously!
There’s no wasting time switching settings or hoping for the best when ironing that expensive silk shirt.
The steam it creates is amazing and it glides across the fabric so easily.
The pile of ironing that would normally take me close to 2 hours to complete was done in around 40mins.
A saving of an hour and 20mins, and any parent would be grateful of that.

From a perspective buyer point of view, I was flabbergasted by the price of this beauty.
The recommended retail price is $599.
Never in a million years would I have made the conscious decision to spend that kind of money on an iron, especially after ‘making do’ with my $2.00 special for all these years….
I think I may be an ironing convert.
After using this amazing product, I can now 100% see why you would spend that kind of money on it.
In fact, I cannot recommend this iron enough. Seriously.
It has really altered my opinion on expensive household items.
Maybe sometimes spending that extra money on quality would leave me much better off in the end.
Having such a large family means that I don’t have that kind of disposable income just ready to spend on one item, and many of us are in the same boat. But if you are a stickler for ironing and would love to see perfect results every time, start saving now, or even treat yourself to a lay-by just for you.
OR HIT THE END OF YEAR SALES!!!!
It’s definitely a winner, thank-you Phillips, you have helped cut down the mundane housework time leaving me more time to spend with my monsters!!!
Happy Ironing Everyone!!!
