If you were writing a label for it what would you put on it? It doesn’t have to be serious!
Comments from our followers on social media included:
“Iron. Something my Mum used to spit on before she started ironing.”
“Iron, often put in handbags to ward of unwanted advances!”
“Flat iron – these were of no use to Crawley people until the new town was built as the law forbade using them unless you lived in a flat. By the time the new town brought flats to the area, electricity had become a big thing and people bemoaned never being able to use these irons.”
