About Extreme Ironing


“Now we really can have a piece of the cake and eat it too. Extreme ironing is the solution for the time-deprived.” – Kym, Founder of Extreme Ironing

What do you do when you want to go out with your friends and have a good time, but have a truck-load of ironing to do at home? Combine them!

Extreme ironing is a celebration of the cultural phenomenon of multitasking that came into vogue at the turn of the 21st century.

Men worldwide have universally declared that multitasking is no longer the domain of women, and have taken to the extreme the concept of multitasking by ironing whilst performing other activities… like base jumping, hang gliding and rock climbing.

Women have joined in the celebration too by participating in the sport of Extreme ironing. The capitalization of Extreme makes it ever more Extreme.

Now an internationally recognized sport, Extreme ironing has exploded onto the main stage after decades of existence in the back-mountains of Kilimanjaro and Everest.
