Whether you are tired of hauling out the ironing board or you need something more portable, a garment steamer may be for you. Here is a list of the top five steamers available on the market today.
A stand-up steamer is perfect for commercial use, or at home, while a portable one is best for the traveller who wants to avoid the dry-cleaners. We have steamers for the casual wrinkle buster and the professional, with options in between.
1. Reliable Vivio 55GC
Though not the cheapest option, the Vivio 55GC is a workhorse. This commercial steamer will not let you down whether you are using it in a garment shop or at home. With its built-in hanger, one galleon water bottle and “stay cool” wood handle it will serve all your steaming needs. This steamer is heavy duty and built to work.
2. Conair Turbo ExtremeSteam
A slightly more portable (and affordable option), the Conair Turbo ExtremeSteam is a powerful steamer boasting dual heat technology and a turbo button that super heats the steam to instantly release wrinkles. The built-in aluminum plate can do away with your iron, giving you a fresh-pressed look every time. Included is a three-in-one attachment piece for pulling fabric taut for easy steaming, spacing and protecting fragile fabric and a bristle for loosening fibers.
