This makes way more sense than dragging an ironing board out: Quilted ironing board with magnets for the top of the dryer! -- no more wrestling with the ironing board! Good idea for new laundry room
Magnetic ironing board on dryer. Skymall
Quilted Ironing Mat. This “ironing board” won’t clutter your laundry room. My mom got this for me when I moved into my first apartment by myself. It was a small one bedroom and finding somewhere to store a full sized ironing board just wasn't going to happen. This is definitely practical if you live alone or in a small space. It has magnets on each side to clamp to the metal of the washer/dryer and wont budge while you use it. -RKH
DIY magnetic ironing board. Take an ironing pad, cover in a pretty fabric of your choosing (optional), sew magnets into edges and turn your washer or dryer into an ironing board. Strong, sewn-in corner magnets will keep it firmly in place and you will have a bigger ironing surface than standard, narrow boards. Roll or fold to store or sew an extra scrap of material to hang it from a hook in the laundry room.
