Does anyone know what I can use to replace the pad that's under my ironing board cover? It's gotten thin on one end where I do the majority of my ironing. The cover is still in fine shape, so I'd hate to buy an entire cover and pad.

Try using a baby's flannel blanket as padding under the ironing board cover.
Use one or more layers of old towels to achieve the thickness you need.
A towel worked for me.
And maybe add a sheet of foil on top of the towels or blanket to reflect the heat of the iron. I'm going to try that the next time I change my ironing board cover. I saw several tips regarding that here at TF.
I use old sheets under the cover, good luck.
Thanks everyone. I'll think I'll give the towel and sheet a try - cover the towel with the sheet and then the cover.
I would buy a yard of Warm & Natural quilt batting and cut it to shape. A yard on sale would cost about five dollars but since it's 90" wide you could double or triple the thickness.
