Whether it is a linen shirt or a sheer blouse, we all have an item that is a pain to iron. This struggle is not limited to clothes, the same pain applies to tablecloths and curtains. We have all gone through the process of washing those items only for them to come out of the dryer as a wrinkled mess evidence of the fluff cycle’s quick concession. Some of us choose to not even enter the time consuming battle for a pyrrhic victory at best by instead immediately dropping those items off at the local dry cleaner. Dry cleaning is a great option however the price of that convenience can quickly accumulate. A fabric steamer is a great option that not only saves you time but can save you a considerable amount of money. Wanna talk about how?
A Fabric steamer…
1. Removes wrinkles– Fabric steamers can quickly and easily remove wrinkles out of delicate and hard to iron fabrics.
2. Freshens items instead of washing them or spraying scented chemical sprays on them– The steam from a fabric steamer is hot enough to kill the odor causing bacteria on clothing. Imagine the curtains that picked up the odor of burned popcorn can be steamed back to freshness without even having to remove them from the curtain rod. Imagine that outfit that was worn for a few hours can be steamed back to freshness. No more having to wash or professionally launder an item because it needs to be freshened up.
3. Reduces wear and tear– Washer machines have improved dramatically overtime in regards to our delicates however dry cleaning clothes frequently can cause them to become more delicate over time. Fabric steamers do not add any extra wear and tear, hence adding to the life of your clothes.
I have quite a few items that are difficult to iron. You guys know the ones, where you iron one part perfect and move on to the next part only for the first part to mysteriously wrinkle again. I like my trips to the dry cleaners to be very few and far between. My steamer allows me to reduce the amount of laundry to wash and almost eliminates my trips to the dry cleaners. I love it!! Time saved and money saved!! I highly recommend a fabric steamer. If you are into creased slacks and shirt sleeves then I recommend a fabric steamer that has a crease attachment that will give you the executive look without the executive dry cleaning bill. Happy savings!!
