Steam or iron: not sure which path to take? Steaming provides the safest and gentlest finish for laundry items, releasing wrinkles for a smooth finish. We only iron when we want an extra-crisp finish.
Wool cannot be ironed. After washing woolens and drying, steaming will release the wrinkles and fluff the yarns.
Pants can be easily steamed by hanging them by the cuff.
We recommend steaming and flipping mattresses at least two times a year to kill dust mites and bacteria, and to reduce allergens. Add 1 capful of The Laundress Ironing Water directly into the steamer’s water tank to achieve a fragrant finish.
Steam dry-clean-only items.
Steam wool, upholstery, and delicates.
Use stale water.
