Are Garment Steamers Worth The Investment?

Not too long ago garment steamers were were used almost

exclusively by dry cleaners, tailor shops or clothing stores

for quickly pressing clothes. I can remember buying a sports

jacket at the local men’s store years ago. Although he

jacket fit right off of the rack it was rather wrinkled so

the tailor took it into the back room and came out with it

perfectly pressed. When I asked how he did that so quickly

he said he had a garment steamer in the back room.

Back then I didn’t know what a garment steamer was, however,

I could only imagine that they quite were expensive and

cumbersome. Today, garment steamers are affordable,

versatile, easy to work with and available for you to have

in your home. You may wonder if it is worth having a garment

steamer at home, after all, you probably already have a steam

iron to iron your clothes. Why would you need a garment

steamer? Because an iron is not as versatile as a garment

steamer and it will not do all the tasks around your home

that a garment steamer can do.

In addition to getting the wrinkles out of your clothes your

garment steamer will also disinfect and sanitize your clothes

at the same time. You would be surprised, and I imagine

pleased, at some of the other tasks it can perform.

I’m sure you have heard about the national outbreak of bed

bugs. With the current outbreak of bed bugs do you worry

about picking up bed bugs while traveling and staying in

hotels. Your garment steamer will not only kill any bed bugs

you may have on your clothes but you can use your garment

steamer to steam clean your suit case, your coats or jackets

and anything else you may have taken on your trip.

In addition to clothes, your garment steamer can be used in

many other areas of your home. You can disinfect and

sanitize your mattresses with your garment steamer. This

will eliminate bed bugs, fleas, flea larvae and other

allergens including dust mites that may bother your


Garment steamers can also be use to remove the wrinkles from

curtains and drapes while they are on your windows. This

would also eliminate any bed bugs, dust mites and other

allergens hiding in your curtains or drape. Allergens such

as dust mites as well as bed bugs, fleas and flea larvae

like to hide in curtains and drapes.

The upholstery on your furniture is another good place to

use your garment cleaner. Not only will it remove wrinkles

your garment steamer will remove odors and give your entire

room a fresher, cleaner smell. Your garment steamer also can

eliminate bed bugs, fleas and allergens like dust mites that

may be living and thriving in your furniture.

As you can see, garment steamers have come a long way in

recent years. And they have become more affordable making it

more realistic to have a garment steamer in your home to keep

so many things clean, fresh and wrinkle free. It may be time

for you to consider having a garment steamer in your home.
