I hate ironing clothes since as far as I can remember. It bothers me a lot when I have to iron my clothes and those of my husband between wear. I prefer handling any other task in the house rather than iron clothes. This is why I had to desperately look for an alternative to ironing and was greatly amazed to learn about garment steamers. One day I showed up at the office with a creased shirt and a male colleague noticed. When he pointed out, I stated how I hated ironing and this is when I learnt about the existence of garment steamers.
Even though I wasn’t planning to buy another electronic item for use in my home, I turned to the internet to order one. I realized that there are several brands and types available in the market. The different types of garment steamers I found also varied with price. Since I didn’t know which one to trust; you don’t always take the word of manufacturers when buying an item, especially when you are buying an expensive electronic item. Since I needed to hear the opinion of other people, I turned to online garment steamer reviews.
These online reviews came extremely in handy in helping me make an informed decision. The fact that there are different types of garment steamers and varying brands is enough to make the process of obtaining one a daunting one. Beside price, I didn’t know what else to consider because I had never even seen one in my life. I eventually find one that met my needs at that time including my budget.
Nowadays, I use my garment steamer all the time and this has cut down my ironing time considerably. This is especially the case, when I am working on light material such as silk, chiffon or even synthetic material such as polyester and nylon. At least I don’t have to worry about melting, scorching or even burning my delicate fabrics. I just have to run the nozzle under my fabrics lightly and I am done. It works perfectly well even when I am dealing with clothes that have strange cuts, ruffles or even laces. Nevertheless, I still have to use my conventional iron when I am dealing with cotton fabrics.
