The merchandise consists of two styles of household ironing boards. The first is a steel, table-top model measuring 24 inches in length and 12 inches in width. It has a U-shaped stand and a cotton cover. The other is a floor-standing ironing board with a wooden ironing surface and a steel stand. It measures 48 inches long by 12 inches wide, and also has a cotton cover.

The applicable subheading for the steel table-top ironing board will be 7323.99.9060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for table, kitchen or other household articles and parts thereof, of iron or steelother, other, not coated or plated with precious metal, other, other, other.
