I remember reading the thread about flimsy rests for the Little Clover iron
and the hot glue rhinestone thingy. I found a cute. teensy little cast iron
skillet *many* years ago that I use, apparently it's actually a spoon rest.
It must have been some sort of 'give away' long ago from 'Lodge' cast iron
company because I've never seen one actually for sale anywhere.  Well, when
I was looking for the link to post for the powdered starch I found a place
that sells them, just incase anyone wants to get one of these things. They
really work well to lay down those little hot gadgets. NYAA. I also put some
of those little felt dots on the bottom so it wouldn't scratch up my sewing

I use a tall (old) coffee mug to put mine in. (Check your local Salvation
Army or Goodwill store).  Without something secure to put that Clover Iron
in, I was afraid I'd either set fire to my table or badly burn myself!
Something others have done is super-glue the teeny iron rest to a 6" ceramic
tile.  It's better to be safe than sorry.

What clever ideas - I am going to go with the tile one as I have a couple of
spare rectangle ones.

Thanks ladies,

I've got a tiny cast skillet somewhere in the basement.  I might dig
that out for Mom, and then do the tile thing for mine.  Mom has used a
Pyrex pie pan in the past.

I've tried the coffee mug and found it to be highly likely to topple
over unexpectedly.  It would fall over 2-10 minutes after I put it in
the mug, so I feel it isn't safe enough for me.  I felt safer using
the original stand because if it was going to topple it would do so
right then while I was expecting it, not after I might have left the
room to do something else.
