This quick video demonstrates how a simple sheet of aluminium foil can make that tedious chore of ironing much faster. Basically, you just have to put the strip of foil under the ironing board cover and iron away.
With the reflected heat from the foil, you don't have to iron the other side, since you'll be ironing both sides at once. Neat! (By the way, CupRockTV has a longer, more talkative demonstration of this trick in action.)
Go ahead and leave the foil in place on your ironing board if you wish, because there's another trick that will help get wrinkles out of delicate clothes.
