If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you will know that recently we acquired ourselves a new iron to review.
Mr MMM whom has always been our primary ironman (pardon the pun), quickly took the Pillips PerfectCare Aqua into his care.
I can honestly say, I have never seen a man iron quiet as good as Mr MMM even prior to the AquaCare Aqua. Not even my brother who was in one of those armed services areas is as good. So in his hands the PerfectCare Aqua, was going to be like trading his Camry Sportivo in for a Porsche.
(Hence why the new iron has been called Portia. Mr MMM’s Lover, Portia the Steamy iron)
Mr MMM prides himself on crisp, well pressed business shirts and is happy to take as much time as necessary to get them ‘just right’. He has slowly infiltrated his beliefs onto all of the kids with their uniforms and day care clothes always being meticulously ironed by him. He says it gives them pride in their appearance. I have to agree with him on that one. I just don’t prioritise it as highly as he does.
See over the reflux years with the kids, I have narrowed much of my wardrobe down to clothing that just requires a shake and can be worn. My work shirts really were the only items needing a quick rub over.
That was until Portia the Philips PerfectCare Aqua arrived. The Philips PerfectCare Aqua is the latest in a range of revolutionary steam generators and I have to say … Yippee! Without sounding too much like a Demtel ad, this iron not only cuts your ironing time in half, it changes your life. No more deciding not to wear an item due to the ironing factor!
Ironing a basket of clothes is a breeze with this iron always being at optimal temperature for any ironable garments. So you can iron jeans and then a silk shirt, one after another without needing to wait for the iron to cool. This is me talking too. Not Mr MMM aka ironman. I have never enjoyed the ironing task but yesterday afternoon I ironed 25 items, 8 of them business shirts in just under 1hr!
Yes I am in shock too.
The SteamGlide soleplate helps the PerfectCare Aqua glide across fabrics, with little effort required. So no slaving over wrinkled cotton shirts. In fact, I timed myself ironing Mr MMM’s business shirt. 2 minutes 20 seconds! And that shirt was immaculately crisp.
Hint For The SAHM’s: Now, if I was looking for some pocket money, I would seriously consider getting one of these babies and starting a little ironing business. It would be that pleasurable and I know that the quality of ironed garments produced would be of professional standard that people would pay for. Unlike my old ironing skills.
The Philips PerfectCare Aqua has also been tested and approved by independent textile experts, including Woolmark which is handy to know.

We would never considered a steam iron prior to this review and considering how much quicker and easier it makes an arduous task … WE WILL NEVER BE WITHOUT ONE NOW!
