Once again, I left the sewing room for a "few minutes" not to return until the next day -- and the iron was left on. Necessity breeds invention.

I plugged the iron and a small desk lamp into a power strip and turned the light ON. Now, if the light is on I know the iron is also and while walking by the room - I will quickly see that the iron is still on.

Another option would be to put the iron on a timer.

I have a light timer I plug my iron into. e When I turn it on I set it for the period of time I think I will be there.

I am running out to buy a small lamp....the iron is left on way too much at my house.

I leave the radio on - then (if the house is quiet enough), I don't have to walk past the room to see it.

Very good tip. For the same reason I had the same solution. I leave on a certain passage light that is never used. You method of a lamp is better as every now and again my husband walks past and switches off the light. The desk lamp will stay on, only I will notice.
