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.
