If you have a Big Board, this is the cover for you! The Big Board Ironing Board cover is made from the same great material as our mats and will help you out with many of your pressing needs. It’s like having a third hand when pressing any item. The Steady Betty stays cooler than most pressing surfaces, but allows the heat on the fabric to be as hot as needed. You will like the cooler surface against your hands too. Our ironing board covers are machine washable: use delicate cycle, warm water and mild detergent. When pressing seams you will find them to be uniform and straight. We're sure that The Steady Betty also holds bias strips better than any other surface.
