I think that's called scraping the barrel, Squeaks

Erm - you could sit on it and use it as a sledge - even better when you slide down the sides of hills on the long grasses. I have done this using plastic bags, but metalised ironing board cover would be the height of luxury - ooooh, shouldn't this be on the 'it used to be posh' thread

Default recycling that ironing board cover

if you know any primary school or nursery school or playgroup staff, offer it to them as material for space costume, for the dressing up box or performances.

you might also try cutting it up into sections and slotting it down behind your radiators, as insulation/reflector.
