A fresh steaming provides the safest and gentlest finish for laundry items, releasing wrinkles for a natural finish. When it comes to steaming clothes vs. ironing them, not only does steaming avoid any risks posed from ironing (such as burning and unintended creasing), but the high temperature of steam lifts surface dirt, allergens, and sweat residue, which helps eliminate odors. A steamer is a great investment. You'll find it pays for itself very quickly, saving you time and money by reducing dry cleaning and aiding in the at-home cleaning process. You’ll find it’s easy to achieve a professional-looking finish on your clothes with just a few passes of a high-quality steamer.
Steaming can do so many wonderful things for your clothes. We at The Laundress steam everything! Here are some more reasons we love it:
Steam out wrinkly clothing using a steamer to create a more relaxed, casual finish vs. the crisp finish from an iron. As they tend to heat up more quickly, and don’t require an ironing board, steaming is also the more time-efficient way to remove wrinkles and creasing. Plus, it has the added benefit of freshening the fabric in addition to smoothing away creases.
Freshens Items Between Washing Or Dry Cleaning:
Keep items fresh between wearing and washing, especially woolens and dry-clean items. This will both reduce dry cleaning expenses and wear on items! Dry cleaning garments, especially delicates like silk and wool, can lead to dehydration and degradation of fabric over time. Steaming is a great alternative that still provides a deep clean and a professional finish.
Cleans & Freshens Items Not Suitable To Launder Or Dry Clean:
Steaming removes wrinkles from home furnishings such as upholstery and drapery, mattresses, pillows, bed skirts, bedding, and carpeting. Upright steamers like the Jiffy Steamer allow for easy maneuvering around the home to clean hard-to-reach spaces like curtains and bed skirts.
