Rayen Folding Ironing Board

Folded (L x W x D): 84cm x 39cm x 14cm. Height: Maximum 89cm. Ironing area (L x W) 121cm x 39cm. Features: unlimited height options; padded, removable, elasticated cover; metal mesh ironing area2 year guarantee. Replacement covers available from Lakeland, Empire and House of Bath priced £5.99.


Clever folding mechanism means this can be stored in a drawer or on a shelf - the legs fold in half and the two ends of the board fold inwards. The convenience of being able to fold it up means it has a small ironing area. The cover is not as taught as some of the others and the padding rather thin. Slightly unstable when ironing with a tendency to tip up when putting pressure at the pointed end of the board. The iron rest is not large enough to accommodate a steam generator iron. Ironing board cover is washable and but instructions recommend it must be ironed on a 2 dot setting!
