Why didn't I buy a steamer long ago

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Was out cruising the mall with my fiancee Saturday, and we stopped in at Macy's to peruse. I had been thinking about getting a steamer for quite awhile, so off to housewares. They had 5 different models, ended up with a Rowenta compact 1400watt, 32 oz. cap.. Had been thinking mostly about an easy way to get the wrinkles out of ties, but after it worked so good so quick, I tried it out on a suit that needed a bit of dewrinkeling. Had booko horiz. wrinkles on back of jacket from too much time sitting in car, out in a heartbeat. And a good once over on the pants, even got the croch wrinkles out without any problem. It came with a springloaded attachment for redoing the creases in pants, but after trying it out, got a better job at the ironing board and iron w/ a cover cloth on creases. Wonder why I had never bought one before, makes life so much easier.

Indeed - a shop there named Hot Carl carries a wide variety of them.

Recommend one to anyone that will listen.

Jiffy makes a great steamer, great service too, they sell tiny parts that are not usually found, and support even their oldest steamers.

I have 2 of them. Great steamer.

LOL let me know if you still feel the same way about it next month. Steamers are only good on suits and silks. A quality iron and ironing board is still king.

P.S. be sure to post pics of your first 3rd degree burn...

BS.

Time to iron shirts?? GTFO When a cleaners can do it for a $1.50... I'll pay that every time.

Steamers are great for freshening up anything. I used mine on a linen shirt the other day.

I use one on my suits and think it's the best thing since sliced bread. While it will knock the wrinlkes out of a shirt it doesn't give that crisp finish a hot iron does
