The T-fal Ultraglide Iron is the ultimate essential for the laundry room to ensure smooth, wrinkle-free clothing. Ranked #1 in “glideability” and speed in lab tests against the top 20 competitors, the unique ceramic soleplate is scratch resistant for the easiest and fastest ironing. 

I am in love with this iron.  I have honestly had the same iron for all 15 years of marriage, so it was time for an upgrade.   I love the super long cord, I don't have to worry about the iron accidentally getting pulled out of the wall, while I move around the ironing board.   The sole plate has so many holes, it makes ironing a breeze with all the heat and steam.  It is also super easy to clean just wipe it with a damp cloth and the starch wipes of like dusting. No pressure needed.  

It heats up super fast and has amazing vertical steam vapor.  My last iron does not compare at all to this iron, I honesty dreaded ironing with my old iron, it would take forever to warm up, steam was hit or miss, etc.  I had no idea that ironing could be so easy and yes, I admit it... fun!

The T‐FAL FV4495 BLACK ULTRAGLIDE IRON is available at Amazon.com, K‐Mart, and Walmart; MSRP $45.00

Ironing Tips and Tricks:
  • So all your ironing in the bedroom. Sort your laundry on the bed, iron and then the hangers are nice close at hand in the closet.  
  •  Start with the cuffs of your dress shirts and iron around the inside and then the outside. Then press along the arms of the sleeve and around the button. The sleeves are finished and out of the way while you work on the rest of the shirt.
  • To prevent wrinkles, keep moving freshly ironed surfaces away from you.  
  • Always iron using straight, back and forth strokes; never use circular movements. This can stretch out your fabrics and will shorten the life of your clothes
