T-fal Ultraglide Easycord Iron - Review

Disclosure: I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Every family needs an iron. If you're like me, you're not particularly fond of ironing. I go out of my way to purchase clothing that I can toss in the washer and dryer, then hang it until I wear it. On the other hand, I also tend to purchase budget curtains and drapes, which requires me to iron all the wrinkles out of them.
This T-fal Ultraglide Easycord 4446 Iron is the ultimate dream of an iron (other than having a hired laundry person to do everything for me). It's easy to use, easy to fill with water, and easy to clean. It's got a super booster of steam and even does vertical steam.
I love the wide, extra-stable heel because I've knocked one or two irons off the ironing board in my lifetime and it's not pretty. It's also very lightweight and glides easily across a variety of fabrics without pulling. One of my favorite features is the cord support that holds the cord up when the iron is horizontal. I no longer have to worry the cord is going to wrinkle what I just ironed!
The soleplate is specially designed to provide optimal steam diffusion. It super durable and even comes with a limited lifetime guarantee. I used this iron and my old iron to compare results and this iron wins by a landslide. The old iron is now donated to the second-hand store. I love this T-fal iron and definitely recommend it! It's available at Target nationwide for just $39.99.
Tips to Improve Your Ironing Skills Courtesy of T-fal:
  1. Ironing will be easier and faster if the items are not too dry. If they are, lightly spray with water ten minutes before ironing.
  2. Make sure to sort out the laundry accordingly – read the labels carefully so that you can easily work up from the coolest to the hottest temperature and avoid ruining a garment.
  3. Test whether your water is hard by putting a spoonful of soap flakes into a bowl with two cups of water and mix vigorously. If bubbles appear that means your water is soft. (Fun fact: T-fal steam irons and stations are specially designed to use tap water- their construction resists scale, whatever the water hardness.)
  4. If you are unsure about ironing a particular item, test a hidden part of the fabric with the tip of your iron.
  5. When ironing delicate or dark items, place a clean towel or press cloth between fabric and iron. For black dresses or trousers, use the steam setting with the iron touching the fabric.
