Oh, you can use this thing with asbestos; just don’t sniff your ironed clothes when you’re done. Although, that shouldn’t be too difficult. Who sniffs ironed clothes anyway? You do that with fresh laundry, which smells heavenly and fruity. Ironed clothes smell like they just survived a fire in a hardware factory. I’m not sure why you’d take a huge whiff of that scent in particular. However, if your iron does not contain asbestos, smell your ironed clothes all you like. I’m not gonna judge.
