dah, Steam-cleaning and steaming are totally different. Â I can't imagine one would want to wear a suit after it has been pressure washed. I'm sure you've seen a steamer (most retail clothing stores have one, and many people own them as well). Â Basically, there's a small unit that sits on the ground, and is composed of a water tank and a heater. Â There is a long, flexible hose which is connected to a 'nozzle'. Â Water is heated up in the bottom, and the steam flows through the hose. Â The steam will remove wrinkles and help 'lift' the fibers of the fabric on suits. Â I believe it also helps to give life to the roll of the lapel. Â You can pick them up for around $70 on ebay, I want to purchase one soon. My question to those who own them: does steaming a garment remove any odors at all? **edit** nevermind, I didn't finish reading the rest of your post.
