The Mail4Rosey Giveaway!

I remember, very distinctly,my grandmother taking her basket of ironing out twice a week. She would set up her ironing board with it's teflon silver cover and wooden legs, break out her thick Pepsi bottle water dispenser (with the sprinkler holes built into the cap) and set about her ironing. She ironed everything but towels! Sheets? Yep, she ironed them. Blue jeans? Mm hmm, my grandpa was the ultimate in cool dressing...blue jeans, leather jacket, high top Converse... and his cain, hahaha. He did look handsome. AND he had the best creased blue jeans in town thanks to gram and her trusty iron. ;)

These days we don't iron so much, but we do still iron, and it is very important to have an iron in the house for when you need it. I've got a curtain problem right now, and this iron has been working hard for me on restoring them to their original state. Long story short, they were down for awhile and the pleats on the heavy material became unpleated...not an easy job to handle without the right tools. My new T-fal iron is definitely the right tool. Ranked #1 in 'gliedeability' and speed in lab tests against the top 20 competitors, this iron has definitely been a welcome addition to our home. Keep reading to see how you can win one below.

Let's Discuss Spring Cleaning!

Have you already started your Spring Cleaning? When we lived in Florida, I didn't really 'get' the whole Spring Cleaning thing... but now that I live in a cold weather state, boy, do I get it. After a long, hard winter, it's amazingly refreshing to be able to throw open the windows and really get down to organizing, refreshing, lightening things/colors up, and cleaning! I'm so happy to get rid of the darker Fall and Winter colors that I so readily embrace in the cooler/colder months and usher in the warm weather with pastels and soft colors. I've also had a heyday cleaning out closets, organizing the garage, and getting rid of unnecessary items taking up space in my utility room. It feels good to spring clean...and even better to be experiencing warm weather yet again.

Have you started your Spring Cleaning yet? Any plans to do so if you haven't started? Will you enter the selfie contest (linked above) or iron giveaway (below)? Are you LOVING the warmer weather??

Okay...I'm done asking questions now. Good luck to all who enter the two giveaway opportunities. The one for the T-fal FVt4495 iron is just below. US entrants only.

  8. Oh, I've started cleaning all right, but I don't seem to see a light at the end of this tunnel! Where did all this stuff come from!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I have started my spring cleaning, but still have lots to do. I've had the very same drapery problem as you. I ended up making way more work for myself by taking them down to wash...and then realizing they had more crinkles and wrinkles than I would ever get out! I don't even own an iron and this one sounds like a great solution!

    ReplyDelete
  17. This looks like a great iron. Ironing is not my favorite thing but I have to iron my husband's work clothes.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I try to take stuff out of the dry and hang them up right away to avoid ironing. We took care of the spring cleaning when we moved in March.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've been looking at all the "junking" I need to do. Need to get started. And, I could really use a good iron.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ahhhh I swear spring cleaning has a whole new definition once you have kiddos!!! So much stuff to declutter it's insane!!!! This iron sounds pretty fantastic though! What a great giveaway:)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes! I started my Spring cleaning a few weeks ago. I have been continuing it on since. It never seems to end at my house. I love t-fal. I had no idea they had an iron. This is pretty awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have started spring cleaning. I do need a new iron!

    I could do well with a good Iron though

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would love to win this for my son.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That looks like an awesome iron! A nice iron does make a big difference. My husband is a military guy and he does all the ironing - he can put an amazing crease in pants and starch my collars! It is no contest!
    Spring cleaning for us is usually moving since we move every 2 or 3 years. So we completely clean everything out and start over!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I just loved the story about your grandma :). What a FAB iron, very nice giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have never liked ironing! Bleh! It is so tedious, and one mistake and your clothes are ruined! However, I do know some people that iron almost everyday, and I bet they would like this iron!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I don't usually iron. I just throw my clothes in the dryer and crank up the heat, maybe throw a wet wash cloth in with them. That seems to work to get the wrinkles out. But, I will pass this giveaway on to some people who love to iron that I know!

    ReplyDelete
  30. We need to get a new iron actually- our old one bit the dust recently!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I also don't usually use an iron but that is probably because I can never seem to find one that I am happy with. This one might be perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I must admit that I absolutely HATE ironing but this looks like a great iron. Hopefully I can convince my hubby to pick one up--and do all the ironing, too!

  33. oh my goodness, spring cleaning? I think I do that everyday! lol I swear my kids have a completely opposite idea of what clean is from me. LOL! These are really great irons though, I love how clean they look!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I actually start my "Spring" cleaning in january every year. I live in Southern California so January could be spring if I wanted it to be. LOL. Taking down the drapes and washing them is one of the more tedious chores but it look like ironing them would be a joy with this TFal Iron.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have to iron my husbands work clothes so this iron would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I just realized recently that my iron isn't working. I don't use it often, but when I need it, I NEED it!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Spring is great because you can open everything up and air things out. It also makes you want to clean your window and let the sunshine in. Otherwise, I don't do a whole lot. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I didn't realize the type of iron could made such of a difference. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

  40. Oh, ,I would love that iron and we need one badly too. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Spring cleaning? Yeah I need to get on that.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I learned how to iron by watching my mom do it and it's one of my favorite things to do to this day. I'm weird like that, but I love doing laundry and then ironing a freshly washed shirt or skirt.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Spring cleaning is so important to a happy home. It is proven that a clean home helps improve mood and health!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I do not iron. I will pay extra for clothes that do not require ironing.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have started my spring cleaning but keeping up with the daily chores has been keeping me from finishing. I still need to finish all of things I don't do daily like dusting blinds and pulling out the couch to vacuum, I am terrified of what my puppy left back there for me:)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love Spring Cleaning, we are in a rented Condo and it still does not feel like a real home to me, I have no desire to spring clean. Great giveaway though!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I can't remember the last time I ironed anything, but my husband and brother love to iron everything. They love their fancy irons.

    ReplyDelete
  48. So sad that my "iron" is the dryer.... I NEVER iron - ANYTHING.
    Marc on the other hand... if he needs /wants something ironed, he just does it himself. lol

    ReplyDelete
  49. My iron sucks forever more :) But that's okay because the only thing I really iron are perler beads, lmao.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi Rosey - What a great iron! A really good iron like this makes a bit difference in wanting to iron or not! And thx for the contest chance - ok I can so get behind the Spring Cleaning - when I lived 'down the hill' in So Calif, the weather seemed almost always the same - but at 6000 feet altitude - we definitely notice that we can open and air out in late Spring and have more out door living time! :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. This looks like a great iron. A good iron is everything. It can really make a difference on how your clothes look. This looks like a great iron and a fab prize!

    ReplyDelete

  54. I currently don't have an iron because I broke it and would love to try this awesome one. Brittney House

    ReplyDelete
  55. I literally have only ironed 3 times in my life! lol Yup I am that GIRL!

    ReplyDelete
  56. My husband is the main iron-user in the family - he's military and is a whiz at ironing his uniforms! I generally just break out the iron when it's time to do a sewing project, and if I need clothes done I ask him :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm a fan of T-fal kitchen accessories, and I really had no idea that they made other things, like irons. What a nice giveaway – we actually need a new iron.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I could definitely use a new iron. I've started getting stuff together for an upcoming yard sale but need to still do some deep cleaning around my house. Thanks.
