A while back there was a thread singing the praises of professional steamers. Â One poster claimed to be able to steam a handful of shirts in a couple of minutes. Â Tired of ironing my shirts or sending them to the cleaners, this claim caught my attention. Â I mentioned it to my wife, and she ordered me a "Fast Steam" professional steamer for xmas. Â Yesterday, I tried steaming some shirts and was disappointed with the results. Â Granted, the shirts were quite wrinkled to begin with and the steamer did get the wrinkles out, but the shirts didn't look freshly ironed or pressed. Â Instead, they looked the way a shirt does if you take it out of the dryer just as it finishes drying -- ready to iron, but not ready to wear. Â The steamer seems to be very good quality, so I don't think it's an issue with the steamer itself. Â Were my expectations for the steamer unrealistic, or am I using incorrectly?
