While fashion trends and dress codes are always evolving, some things never change. If you want to look your best, choosing clothes that are clean and wrinkle-free is always the best place to start!
But sometimes keeping your clothes wrinkle-free is easier said than done! In today’s post, I’ll be sharing my own solution to that very problem, in the hopes that the information might prove just as useful to you! :-)
The Problem: Removing Wrinkles From Hard-To-Iron Clothing
While I own a few different pieces of clothing that are tricky to iron, one skirt stands out as particularly problematic. The fabric of the skirt is wrinkle-prone, but it’s also delicate enough that I worry about how well it would fare against a hot iron.
The skirt is also tiered, meaning there are multiple layers of that delicate fabric! So even if I was brave enough to attempt ironing it, I have no doubt that it would be a time-consuming project!
Recently, I came to terms with the fact that if I wanted to keep this skirt and my other hard-to-iron clothing looking nice, I ought to look into getting a good steamer.
The Solution: SALAV Professional Series Garment Steamer
After looking a lot of different options, I ended up ordering the SALAV Professional Series Garment Steamer on Amazon. I’ve been using this steamer for a few months now, and I couldn’t be happier with it!
Not only did it solve my skirt problem, but it’s also great for freshening up clothes that I’ve already worn but are still clean enough to wear. Here are some of the unique features that make this clothes steamer so useful.
5 Things I Love About This Clothes Steamer
1. Multiple Hangers
One of my favorite features on this clothes steamer is the built-in hanger. While it’s obviously great for shirts and jackets, it also offers a variety of options for hanging other clothes too!
Both ends of the hanger have a small hook you can flip out and hang things from. It also comes with clips you can use to hang pants or slacks from the bottom part of the hanger.
No matter what you need to steam, you can find a handy place to hang it on this steamer!
2. Large Water Tank
This steamer has a surprisingly roomy water tank! It can hold enough water that you could run the steamer for a full hour if you wanted to!
If there’s one drawback to the tank that I can speak to, it’s that it seems to be a bit fragile, so handle with care! (I accidentally cracked the tank when I put the steamer in my trunk to take it over to the OGT Studio, but luckily it was nothing a little super glue couldn’t fix!)
3. Foot Pedals
You can turn the power on and off and adjust the steam settings with a tap of your foot! I love the foot pedals on this steamer, because it means I don’t have to bend down to turn it on every time I want to use it!
4. Handy Attachments
This steamer comes with a few useful attachments too! Use the pants press attachment to leave behind perfect creases on your slacks, or use the fabric brush to help brush away lint and pet hair while you steam.
There’s also a mini ironing paddle, which is really useful for straightening out collars and cuffs.
5. Retractable Cord
While it might seem a bit silly, I really love the fact that the power cord is retractable. It’s so nice to not have to unwrap and rewrap the power cord every time I want to use it!
And once the cord is tucked away and the hanger bar is lowered, this steamer is surprisingly compact and tidy! It fits neatly in my closet and is easy to pull out again whenever I need it.
6. It Works!
Finally, I love this clothes steamer because it works really well! As long as you hold the steam wand close enough to the fabric, wrinkles just fall right out like magic! (I suspect some of the negative Amazon reviews were left by people who didn’t do this, so I thought I’d mention it here!)
So if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to freshen up your clothes between wearings, or you just want to cut back on how much ironing you do, then I would absolutely recommend this steamer as a solution! :-) (And as an added bonus, it’s also great for cleaning too!)
