Ironing boards come in many different shapes and sizes.  Therefore it is essential to have a good fitting and good quality ironing board cover to make your job easier and more enjoyable.

You really need a good fitting ironing board cover that fits the board tightly, without wrinkles,  and that doesn’t move or slip when you iron a garment.  There is nothing more annoying when a cover slips when you move a shirt or garment over the cover.

The best ironing board covers are ones that mould to the shape of your board and also have a tie or elastic to complete the fit.

You also should be looking for good quality fabric – basically material that is durable.  It needs to be colour-fast to prevent dye residue spreading onto your valuable clothing.

A reversible ironing board cover is also a great option.  Usually they already have padding or filling sewn into the cover so there is no need to purchase additional felt or padding.   They normally last longer than a one sided cover – basically when you wear one side out, simply turn it over for a brand new cover.

It amazes me how many people purchase top quality ironing boards but have a rather dismal ironing board cover to go with it.  To me, this is the most important part and will definately make your job faster and easier.
