    At least she didn't say "decenter".

    Yes I did before too. I get best results with a lot of water and my Tefal on max temp. I still think my Silver Star is too hot. I might try it on minimum next week.

    Just tried this, didn't work for me. Here is my JT shirt immediately after ironing.me

    Ok. And you don't need to wait for the section to cool down before you move to the next section?

    Finally got the Silverstar about a month back. Excellent results pressing pants and putting in a crease, but I am not getting good results ironing shirts. I got frustrated and switched back to my Tefal steam iron last night, and I just realised how much hotter the Silverstar is, even with the Tefal set to max. So I'm thinking I was simply using a too high heat on the Silverstar, to the point that the fabric of the shirt doesn't cool enough as I move the shirt around, and 'forgets' the ironing it has received. So what setting do you use on the Silverstar for shirts? I was using 4. Or do you also have a vacuum board that you use with it?

    Not been to your new place; how's the security? Does the guy sound nuts enough to try something?

    The suiting thread

    Never done an Instagram ad from within Instagram before. I don't have access to the Instagram account, as unlike Facebook, there is no concept of Page Admins. I link the Instagram account to the Facebook Page, then create an Ad in Facebook. This Ad will run in Instagram (I think now is by default, I can't find the checkbox anymore).

    Wait until FB changes their interface again... Instagram is not so bad, it's just an extension of Facebook ads. It's just 1 checkbox IIRC. AdWords is so much better, I agree. Plus if you consistently spend on it, Google will offer you free consultation about twice a year.

    EG does sell from the factory at lower than retail, but choices are very limited. Oh and definitely leave them untied AND use a shoehorn.

    Do you feel that there is anything that it cannot do that a normal household iron can?

    Hmm. Ok. When I was doing my research before buying my current iron, I came across stuff like the Laurastar Pulse, boards with fans to extract steam and stuff like that. But the consumer stuff seemed way too expensive to be worth it. I stumbled upon this Singer and it seemed like a cheaper alternative. I have no problem with hanging it up in my laundry room. If I accept the drawbacks, would it be able to iron and press my stuff better than consumer irons?

    Gents, I'm in the market for a new iron. Anyone used something like this before? http://www.lazada.com.my/singer-gn677-industrial-gravity-feed-steam-iron-12090836.html Would it be appropriate for normal home use, shirts and pants and such?
