So, you have seen them in big retail stores and small boutiques, at you
friends home, at your local dry-cleaners, and on TV, you've seen them in
the different shapes and sizes, however your are not sure whether you
need one, or which one to get.
Let's start with benefits:
They all have the tank, that has to be filled with water, heating
mechanism, hose, steam head and on/off switch. However, there are few
thing to keep in mind when making your decision:
- Saves time.
Many garment steamer users have found, that steaming is up to five
times faster than conventional ironing. Maybe, that's the reason, why
you don't see people ironing clothes in retail stores.
- Safe for any material and fabric.
Tough enough for denim but gentle on silk, and doesn't "shine" or
scorch fabrics like iron can. Garment steamers breathe new life into
fabrics; conversely, ironing crushes clothing fibers. Therefore, gentle
steaming prolongs the life of the fabric.
- Easy to use. Just fill the tank with water, turn the switch on, wait for a few minutes - and you are ready to go.
- Versatile. Use on clothing, drapes, tablecloths, bedding, and virtually any fabric. You can even use it for removing wall paper.
- Benefits your health.
Steamers not only gets rid of wrinkles, freshens up fabric and
eliminates odors, but also kills germs, bacteria and dust mites. Many
owners uses powerful steam to sanitize bedding and upholstery.

heat up fast, as in few minutes. For a large jobs you should get a
professional unit, that may take up to 15 minutes to heat up, and as a
rule they have more power and large tank capacity.
- Quality construction.
That's where you get what you paid for. Since you must apply some
tension while steaming (for better results), cheaper units becomes
wobbly with the time and telescopic poles collapse while steaming. You
definitely want better quality unit, that is built with better quality
- Length of the hose and pole.
Good quality steamer should come with a pole and hose that are long
enough to handle coats, pants, dresses and could be used on curtains and
bedding. Choose wisely.
