I just recently got some Clover ironing thimbles on clearance - set of 3. I love them, but wish there was a great way to store them at/near my ironing board. They are awesome for pressing open seams. I can't wait to try with my mini-iron.
Do you find your Rowenta leaks? I have it, and it leaked so badly it completely ruined the finish on my table - leaked right through the tabletop ironing board. Maybe I ended up with a dud? Anyway, I use it as a dry-iron, and dry it works pretty well!
