Hit or Miss: Regency "Mushroom" Iron
We all hate ironing. Anything than can promise a faster or simpler way will get our attention. This advert is from a February 1951 edition of the Wireless and Electrical Trader. Hit or Miss, you tell me?
Difficulty in ironing velvets,
velours and embossed fabrics, which are ironed from the reverse side, is
overcome by the Regency Mushroom electric iron. This appliance is
mushroom shaped, 3¾" diameter, and in use the normal ironing
procedure is reversed: the clothes are drawn across the top surface
of the Mushroom. It is particularly useful for ironing baby clothes,
puff sleeves, etc.
