An ironing board with adjustable heights is more than just a future dream. Boards with as many as five to seven height adjustments are appearing on the market, says Fannie Gannon, Iowa State College home management specialist. You may have to do a bit of shopping to find one, but the effort is worth while. With an adjustable board, you can do those long hours of ironing sitting down. Some boards are adjustable from right to left, too, so you can swing the point or center of the board toward you as is most convenient. New all-metal ironing boards are non-warping, Miss Gannon j points out. If you get one, be sure it has holes in the board so steam from pressing has a chance to es-1 cape. If the board you buy has a] wood top, be sure it's made of well- seasoned lumber that won't warp. Choose an ironing board with rubber feet. Then it won't "creep" as you iron. Some boards are coming designed for hanging up, an advantage in storing. The cloth cover never touches the floor. And the board is out of the way and less likely to be crowded and damaged in storage.
