Come on ME, either you want to get rid of it or you don't want to get rid of it.
Don't you realise that even a trouser press has feelings.

Perhaps we shoud put the two together and breed some baby trouser presses :D

 :o I don't want another one! It was the lot before the one I wanted and I'd said to erindoors, no one will want the trouser press! I was right and then it got included with the next lot! It could have been worse though, later on a nice old elm chair suddenly got a metal double bed included with it!  :o all part of the fun of auctions!  :laugh:

The easiest solution is to off-load the problem.  Give it to St David's Hospice and let them sell it!   ;D

They are welcome to it, although I doubt they would find a paying customer!

If you can take it to the unit in Builder Street it will be gratefully received thanks ( and anything else-- metal beds-- you name it they can sell it especially when my OH is behind the counter in Lloyd Street) ;D

What an original idea, here's me, retired engineer and I never thought of that, must be slowing up.
I takes a girl to show us boys the way and I should know, I'm married to one you know.
Ps, Go for the wall mounted one that way the juices won't run out as much.  L0L

Problem is, you can't double up on this appliance, it's either a trouser press or a turkey cooker.
Think what a mess there will be if you get it wrong, bits of cotton on your turkey.  L0L
To be perfectly honest I don't think this will catch on.
ME, you could put it outside in the winter for the birds to warm their little feet on with a bowl of water which won't freeze.
You see it's all coming back to me now, brilliant ideas which I thought had gone forever, thanks ME. Z**

I bought one about 30 years ago for my OH and he  presses his trousers in it every day that he doesn't take a clean pair from the wardrobe.
The answer to this is obviously jeans-- and he doesn't possess a pair !
Haven't found any feathers in it yet-- I must watch out, especially nearer Christmas. ;D
