This Is How A Steam Iron Works. Facts. Facts. Facts.
Is your steam iron spitting? Leaking? Intermittently? On a high setting? The most common cause is the soleplate isn’t hot enough to create steam. Wait until you hear the beep that says ‘I’m HOT!

Pressing Cloth Facts. Facts. Facts.
Do you ever reach for a tea towel? Or a handkerchief? To put over a garment to stop you from scorching or burning it?
A pressing cloth is a better option. Because. It has no hems. Is much bigger than a handkerchief. And much better than a tea towel because it’s never been in your kitchen.

On October 1st 2018, Australia Post increased their parcel rates for all parcels by an average 3.85%.
As we make no profit on our postage rate, we have had to increase our flat rate postage charge from $16.50 to $16.95 per parcel. This is a 2.7% increase.
This applies to all parcels regardless of how many items you put in your parcel. And applies to all destinations Australia wide.
As a rural business, I am totally dependent on Australia Post.
There are no couriers that come to my remote rural property.
Australia Post is not offering a better service for this increase. It would help all of us if you could voice your disapproval to the management at Australia Post.
We live and work from our remote rural property in the picturesque foothills of the Victorian Alps.
Therefore all parcels are despatched via Australia Post.
Our post office is in a remote location. So we post parcels once a week.
We hope you understand how the tyranny of distance affects a business that is in a remote, rural location.
For our international customers, please check with Customs in your country to see if they impose extra charges on your parcel once it enters your country.
This is especially relevant to those of you who reside in the UK.
