One of the biggest challenges I have when trying to follow Jeffrey's advice, for instance, is actually getting all the wrinkles out of my suits. Sometimes I just need to bust out the E-Steam and touch things up. So long as I'm being careful and not just haphazardly blasting all over the suit with the steamer, I'll probably be fine.
This. Jeffery's thread scared me a bit as well, until I realized I have been steaming my suits for a decade now w/o incident.
That said, he does have a point, overuse of steam can be detrimental. I tried ironing w a cloth as he recommends, but I just dont have the skill, time, or patience to do so. So Im back to just the Jiffy steamer, albeit now trying to limit the steam to just the wrinkled areas.
