I never thought I would be praising a JML product, but after using this "Doktor Power" cleaner I've found I have no option.
A couple of days ago we discovered that the foam inside the ironing board base cover had perished and become stuck to the enamel of the ironing board. Well, it was over 20 years old, so no surprises there.
Normally, no amount of cleaning would have removed the perished brown sponge, or the stain that it left. However, it was suggested that we try this product - after all it was kill or cure, and in its current state if the dried on, rotted remnants of the base cover couldn't be removed a perfectly fine ironing board would have to be thrown away.
The results were amazing. I've put pictures above so that you can see the difference.
The only problem was any slight fault or scratch within the enamel was picked up on by the abrasive cleaner and made worse (as you can see by the photographs). This doesn't, however, matter since a new cover will be replacing the old perished one.
It took just over an hour to clean the entire ironing board of the residue of the rotted cover. This was done using the JML cleaner, a soft cloth and a bowl of water - we did not use the supplied sponge. The result means that we no longer have to purchase a new ironing board, as the old faithful one will last another few years yet.
All-in-all, a surprisingly effective and useful product which has saved us the cost of a replacement ironing board.
