We always show off our bottom! It's our best feature. Because it's the underside of the Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover that's the most important part. And one of the reasons The Quilters’ Guild Of NSW Inc selected us as their ‘Special 25th Anniversary Partner’.
Why do other cover manufacturers only show you the top? Because there's nothing under the bonnet. It's the same old elastic or drawstring round the edges, which never really stops the cover from wrinkling. Does it? It's just more of the same.
That’s why almost everyone says a good ironing board cover is hard to find.
You know what? Ironing should be as enjoyable as making a cake, crafting an heirloom quilt, making a cubby house for the kids and preparing for a dinner party for your friends.
All these activities require much more time, effort and commitment from you than ironing ever will. But you love doing them because there is nothing about what you’re doing that’s annoying you. Isn’t that right?
Take the annoyance out of your ironing board cover and you’ll find yourself looking forward to ironing your best shirt, blouse, party dress. Maybe even starch, iron and sprinkle fragrant oil on your sheets for a very special occasion.
Believe me, once you take the annoyance out of your ironing board cover, you change your attitude to ironing forever. And this is why 100,000 people worldwide opt for The Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover?
Melissa Penfold, the style icon for the ‘essential’ style, home and health magazine for The Sydney Morning Herald, featured The Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover in February and again in March 2007.
Melissa says it’s a staple that should be in every discerning household.
Men and women in business, fashion designers, professional ironers, ardent patchworkers and quilters, textile artists, dressmakers, couture wedding gown makers, wardrobe assistants for film and TV and photographic studios for magazine shoots all agree.
They depend on the best tools to get the job done. They don’t have time to struggle with covers that don’t give a perfect finish every time.
The film and TV industry goes from location to location and needs to have a cover that fits a wide variety of boards. They don’t bring their boards with them, just their cover.
And the standard Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover fits boards from 46cmW x 139cmL down to 32cmW x 114cmL.
Which is why they rely on their cover that Fitz Like A Glove™.
There are 10 reasons why the Australian design of The Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover is different.
1. A tension cord is sewn in the cover and criss-crosses underneath your board. It keeps your cover drum tight and wrinkle free every time you iron.
The tension cord changes your attitude to ironing because you never again have to hold your cover in place with one hand while you iron. Ironing is now easier and takes less time. When you iron wrinkle free, your clothes always look better. It really is a simple and effective solution.
Are you a grump when you iron? If you had a choice, would you rather not be?
2. The tension cord easily criss-crosses over 4 hooks. The criss-crossing doesn’t interfere with the mechanism that moves the legs of your board up and down.
A criss-cross tension cord means there’s no lacing up to do and no draw string to pull. It takes a couple of seconds to secure and never comes undone until you unhook it. Your board also folds up and down with ease.
Do easy, effective solutions appeal to you?
3. The cover is tensioned in 11 different places around the board. It’s finished off with a hem sewn around the perimeter of the cover, threaded with braided elastic.
This tensioning in 11 different places is what allows the cover to Fitz Like A Glove™ on any size or shape of board. It moulds the cover into the shape of your board and the interior elastic in the hem distributes the fabric evenly around your board so there’s no bulk or wrinkles anywhere.
Why do we use braided elastic? Because knitted elastic is cheap and breaks. Superior braided elastic lasts a lifetime.
Is your ironing board always up and in view? Do you want it to look terrific all the time?
4. The heavy duty fabric is 100% smooth cotton drill. It has a diagonal weave, rather than a cross weave.
100% cotton drill means you can set your iron to the highest heat and not worry about it damaging the fabric. Synthetic fabrics don’t tolerant high heat settings for long.
The smooth, diagonal weave is stronger and tighter than a cross weave, so it’s sturdy and lasts longer than all other fabrics other than Kevlar and fibreglass. Your iron glides swiftly over the smooth surface; plus, you’re not renewing your cover every few weeks or months because this cover lasts so much longer than others.
Do you think you waste money on covers that don’t last?
5. The colours are plain, softly muted, washable and colourfast.
The plain, muted colours are not only soft and restful on your eyes, but can be washed as often as you like.
You can put your white silk blouse on any colour and know you can iron it without fear of the colour bleeding onto your blouse just before you walk out the door.
Not like Sarah, who bought a $70 red cover from David Jones. Her husband’s best white shirt looked like he’d bled to death while he was ironing it for a business meeting.
Trust is so important. Even with colours. Isn’t it?
You receive four unconditional guarantees.
6. 12 months replacement guarantee on the fabric, because a good cover should last longer than 12 months. If it doesn’t, we put a new one in the mail to you. Pronto!
This goes beyond a 12 month warranty on workmanship, which never covers wear and tear.
7. A lifetime guarantee on the tension cord, because there’s nothing about it that should disintegrate during the life of the cover. What’s a normal life? Anywhere between 2 and 10 years. Paul, an executive with the NSW Fire Services, just replaced his first cover, bought in 1997.
8. Every colour is guaranteed to be colourfast and machine washable. Couture wedding gown makers, dressmakers, fashion designers, professional ironers and men and women who care about their clothes shouldn’t take a risk on colourfastness.
All colours are tested to trim fast stage. What’s that? You can put a soaking wet, white garment on any colour, and no colour will bleed out from the cover.
Machine washable because a cover that lasts for a few years needs to be washed. A professional ironer washes her cover every second day. A fastidious ironer washes theirs every week. You’ve never washed a cover before? Diarise to wash it every year on the anniversary of your purchase.
9. A complete refund, including postage if you just don’t like it. No questions asked.
Everybody worries about whether or not they’re making the right purchase. We’ve all made mistakes. No matter how careful we are, we sometimes make a bad buying decision.
We don’t believe you should be stuck with something you don’t want. So we guarantee everything about the purchase. It’s a policy that never lets you down.
Just for the record. We’ve never been asked to give a refund. We replace a few covers every year because of fabric faults and have replaced less than 5 covers out of 100,000 because of a tension cord fault.
Which company policy do you prefer? One that puts you first, or profits?
10. I’ve saved the best till last. The Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover is made with love and care in rural Australia by men and women who have a disability.
Because we want to give you only the best. They’re our heroes because they put their heart and soul into every cover. And it shows in their quality of workmanship.
