When we were researching fabric to use for the Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover, we discovered we were in a steep learning curve.
Just what is the best fabric to use? If we want to give you a 12 month wear and tear guarantee? And which will withstand the heat of an iron set to high?
And what is currently being used for ironing board covers?
So many cheaper ironing board covers were made of synthetic fabric. Made in Romania. Which looked like someone’s nightie. Burned easily. And had holes in them within the blink of an eye.
Then there were the ironing board covers that were made of curtain fabric. With acrylic backing.
These were a thin layer of synthetic fabric. Glued onto an acrylic backing that perished as quickly as foam underlays.
Cotton fabric with a cross weave isn’t as durable as fabric with a diagonal weave.
