I've had this item for 2 months now. This ironing board works well for my sewing room. I use it to iron seams and hems as well as medium sized pieces of fabric. I think it would be fine to iron clothing too although I don't use it for that. It has been great for my uses. It is stabilized by the click in stand and you can fold it flat to store. My only complaint would be the iron stand rack is not detachable. I have a mini iron that falls through, so I don't use it, for a full sized iron it might be fine. The foam under the cover could be firmer, these are minor complaints and for the price, I'm still happy with purchase.
