Awhile back a company sent two of these to Kelli and I to review. It’s an ironing board spray bottle holder.
Admittedly, I kind of forgot all about them…well truth be told it ended up under a partially completed charity quilt and there it stayed. Then as I was getting ready for retreat I was rustling around and unearthed it. (I’m sure some of you can relate!)
Last minute I decided to throw it in and let some of the ladies tell us what they thought of it.
When I got to the retreat I hooked it up and told everyone to try it. I comes with the holder and an empty bottle that you can fill with anything. I filled it with the cheap Wal-Mart spray starch. I know a lot of people poo-poo cheap spray starch in favor of Best Press but I’m a cheapo, and I don’t think the extra money that Best Press costs is worth it…so I’m a good old Niagara Spray Starch girl. (I know…I can hear some of you gasping. It’s okay) I’m being honest and that’s what I filled my bottle with.
You can use your own bottle of whatever you like in the holder. You don’t need the spray bottle but I wanted to test the product properly….spray bottle included. The bottle is a good spray bottle. I’ve bought spray bottles before and they didn’t work properly. This one does work but personally in my opinion, I would rather cut the expense of the product and not have the bottle included…but I digress.
The holder snaps onto the ironing board super easy. It can easily adjust to any thickness of ironing board. It’s light weight and easy to carry should you be transporting it.
Here’s what else we found….The hardest part about it was to get in the habit of using it. Here’s Nell pressing some pieces for her quilt. Notice the spray bottles on ironing board? Notice what is in the holder?
The majority of the time while at the retreat, I noticed that the spray bottle was on the ironing board. I really do think it’s habit though. I think if I am going to use one of these regularly, I would have to consciously dedicate myself to thinking about using it to hold the spray starch until it became a habit. I’m so used to setting the spray on the ironing board. Habits can be hard to break but I think I’m going to give it a try.
So what do I think…do I like it? I like it. I really think I would be more inclined to use it for my water bottle though. I don’t know…maybe I need two. One could be for my water bottle. One could be for my water bottle. On those days when I have a marathon of pieces to press, I sure would love having two.
You might remember I bought that GIANT bag of half square triangles. This one.
I’m gonna need a drink in the holder on the day I tackle this bag of bonus triangles.
