  • How to fold an ironing board
If you have a new ironing board and you are unsure how to fold it away, an easy way to figure it out is to turn it upside down and have a look at the underneath. Lay it on the floor so the board is flat and the legs are sticking in the air and have a look for a lever. There should be some kind of lever or release that will allow you to move the legs out of the grooves that keep them in place. Once you have pulled the release level you will be able to slide the legs down so the ironing board is released.

Most ironing boards will come with some brief instructions when you buy them and there may even be some instructions on how to fold your ironing board.

If you are still struggling to close your ironing board there are many videos on YouTube that show people folding their ironing boards.

There should be a lever positioned on the bottom of the ironing board that you push towards the ironing board and then the legs will fold. Look under the board, the lever is usually a little more towards the front and to one side of the board.
