Resumee

The Sichler home appliances Travel Ironing Dummy takes up very little space in your suitcase and is ready for immediate use when you have a hairdryer and a clothes hanger at hand. The hairdryer should not overheat very quickly, otherwise, the process will soon be stopped by itself. The idea behind the product is a good one, but the implementation can still be expanded considerably and can only be used to a limited extent.

Pro

  • Practical size

Cons

  • No hanger
  • No hot air connection
  • Large net
An inadequately equipped helper.

Preparation

The Sichler Home Appliances Travel Ironing Dummy is delivered in a small plastic package and is immediately ready for use when you have a hairdryer at hand. The manual quickly describes how to handle the doll in 2 languages.

Construction

The mannequin is closed at the normal openings of a shirt, i.e. at the sleeves, the collar and the waistband so that the hot air remains trapped and the shirt is ironed.

In the front of the sleeves and collar, there are zippers that can be opened in both directions. A net is sewn into the waistband, in which you can place the hairdryer so that you don't have to hold it.

At the collar, you can open the zipper to insert a clothes hanger and then hang the doll with the shirt. This makes it easier to handle. The zippers on the sleeves are to release the hot air after the drying and smoothing process is finished.

Handling and result

The doll should be applicable to all dress sizes and therefore universally usable. However, the doll is a bit short so that the lower edge of the T-shirt or shirt cannot be smoothed and remains frizzy.

The handling is a bit complicated because small hairdryers don't fit into the net and the size M T-shirt is too big for the doll.

The net is also not suitable for small hairdryers, as it is too large. We have fixed it with a clamp so that the hairdryer can lie in it. Common hairdryers hold in the net without any problems.

Because there are no holes in the fabric, it is difficult for the warm air to escape and the process takes 10 to 15 minutes. Metal hangers get hot very quickly that they can no longer be touched.

In dry places, you have to be especially careful. In the further course, the device has measured a temperature of over 70°C.
