I don't know, maybe the new ones have continuous clean? I would have to go look what brand mine is, I don't remember. Of course, I bought that iron a long time ago - 1974 or '75. Self-cleaning was a fancy feature back then.

Have a look at your iron and see if it has a super hot setting for cleaning. It isn't just that it might spit out something nasty - unless you have very soft water, it is likely filling up with mineral deposits that will clog up the vents. That's why most steam irons back then required distilled water - no minerals.

LOL! There is a certain amount of spread that goes with pregnancy and I don't mean weight gain. Hips do get a bit wider to accommodate the baby.

I'll never get that low again, too old for it! I figure 125-130 pounds (57-59 kg) is a good target weight for me.

Congrats to your SIL!
