STATION -- As if energy crisis and the aren't enough, one announced this week comeback. according to Nancy a family resource with the Texas Service, The it, if you prefer -- but if the problem) has the specialist it's not as bad as mean "wholesale hours" -- only to give today's such as cotton, the look of complete comfort. fabrics can be ira- en occasional ironing one of those perpetual kind of person who thi'ough even the propsects and gives cannot possibly be got to be a classic done it again, and she says about gives that air of hope ): )f us our irons clothing scene, we may be of irons we need to help care for today's fashions," she begins. "Despite high rates of inflation over the past six years, irons have changed little in price (she knows the reason for this is we've all avoided them like the plague, but she doesn't give the remotest hint of it). "Likewise, few design changes have been made, so old irons will probably work just fine," she continues graciously. "One new development is the com- pact steam iron which is lighter and smaller than the standard iron but is not necessarily a bona fide travel iron." By now her audiences realize she's serious, they're hooked, and they're listening seriously. "Suppose you have an old steam iron, but it does not seem to be steaming properly," the specialist says an- ticipating a common problem. One home remedy you may wish to try is this: Fill the steam reservoir with distilled vinegar. Plug the iron in and allow it to steam for about 10 minutes. For the steaming process, place the iron on a metal cake rack so the steam can escape. Be sure to set the rack on a surface that will not be damaged by heat or steam. Check the steaming process to make certain the iron does not "steam out" before the end of the period. Unplug the iron, turn the iron upright and let it stand overnight. Then pour out the vinegar and rinse the reservoir thoroughly with distilled water. Should you use distilled water or tap water for your iron? Some manufacturers recommend exclusive use of distilled water. Other manufacturers suggest switching to tap water once in awhile. Consumers Union says unless you have extremely hard water or water that is chemically softened, you can use tap water all of the time. If you're in the market for a new iron, what should you look for? 1) Look for a full range of tem- peratures and easy-to-read, easy-to-use temperature settings. 2) Make sure it has good steam production with extra steam and spray features. The number of vent holes are really no clue to the amount of steam produced, so it can be tricky to evaluate steam production without a demon- stration. 3) Check to see what weight you will be most comfortable with. Irons should be heavy enough to remove wrinkles but not so heavy that they are tiring to use. 4) Is the cord location convenient for you? Some models permit the cord to suit left-handed ironers. 5)Does the iron have a light that warns when the iron is plugged in? Does the iron have a stable heel rest? It would seem that ironing is staging a comeback. Will it redeem itself this time?
