5.0 out of 5 stars Best iron, 18 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh to wax lyrically about an iron. Well, all I can say is Braun make the best irons Ihave used. I have owned them in different countries, over many, many years. The only problem I have had is here in England. This is because I live in an area with extremely hard water. Since I have been unwell, I do not always remember to clean the iron. This has led to a build up of the minerals & has caused the iron to first of all begin to set the trip switch off, then eventually to 'die'. I have had 4 (counting this latest one) irons in 18 years, one of which came from from another country & was at least 12 years old when it expired. The others were 5 & 6 years old. Some might think this is an average life for an iron by the standards of today.

The weight of this iron is heavier than the previous one I had, but as I can only iron for a short time, it has not affected me. Actually, it slips & skims over fabric so easily, so silkily, it is no chore at all. I like the open handle very much, as I like the cord being able to be swivelled away from oneself. The water container is readily visible, though this is not so important to me in my circumstances. The steam just stops coming out if there is no water available.

The controls are simply illustrated & easy to use. There is an instruction manual. There is an anti-calc filter & the plate can be cleaned also. I have not yet cleaned it as instructed - I must remember to do so.!!!

I do like this tea. The vanilla is not overpowering at all, but takes away the strong taste rooibos can have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Darker than appear in photograph., 18 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a vintage looking curtain for my bedroom. Whilst these curtains do fit that requirement, they are somewhat darker than they appear in the photograph. A mid grey/green really. Not quite the washed look I thought. However, I did not have the energy to search online for any other curtains, plus these were not at all expensive, they are lined & actually stop the light coming in quite so strongly in the mornings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to basics, plus, 18 Oct. 2014

This review is from: Designing Your Face (Hardcover)
Oh Way Bandy. What we women of today owe this young man.

His expertise was in using the face as a canvas & drawing, shading, highlighting, just as a painter would. There are diagrams & easy to follow instructions for us less creative souls. Many of today's make up artists use his methods. Some perhaps are unaware of this fact, but he was very much a forerunner in the world of make-up. Not only to enhance, but to subtly alter a woman's features.

This book tells his basic instructions, including mixing up your own coloured foundations etc. Highlighters, shaders, contour products were not readily available. Many may now feel this is unnecessary, as most of these type of products can be purchased, but still there are occasions when it can be useful.

Such a shame we had to lose this beautiful man.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pure water, at a price., 18 Oct. 2014

I live in a very, very hard water area, which personally, I do find annoying for many reasons. Not the least that it clogs up irons at a great rate. If I do not remember to clean the iron, (I am in ill health) at least monthly, it will sooner, rather than later 'die'. I like a good iron, but I do not like to have to keep replacing them so quickly. After a lot of cyber snooping, including emails to various companies, I decided to go with the iron I like best - again. But what to do about the water? Previously, I have seen warnings not to use distilled water. But this time it seems to be accepted in a 50/50 mix with tap water. However, the online brochure of the iron I bought, stresses de-ionized water. The customer service representative said distilled! This water is both, but it is very, very expensive. So, I still have the problem. Which water to use?

For any man who feels the cold, these are the answer, well at least for my husband they are. 100& cotton which I like, they wash well. I put them in the tumble dryer when dry to soften them up..
