Another one of the hassles of ironing is the ironing board itself. Most standing boards fold awkwardly, take up quite a bit of space, and aren't the steadiest of surfaces. The Ironing Center ($130) offers a secure workspace that attaches to a wall and is only 4" deep when closed. It also offers an iron rest, board cover, and a rack on which to hang those newly pressed shirts and pants. Happy homemaker seen in pic not included.
