Hate Ironing? Hate Wrinkles? Try Steam.

Steam is the latest thing in the laundry room.  You can get steam enhanced washers and dryers and although they’ve been around for years, clothes steamers are making a presence lately.  In the past they were most often seen at cleaners or tailors.  You could drop off your suit for pressing and steaming, picking it up in a day or two.

Today, steamers come in a variety of styles and the cost makes them practical to have around the house.  One that has caught my eye is Rowenta’s Ultra Steam Steambrush.  It has a compact electric pump that delivers continuous steam that can be adjusted to different fabrics.  It also has dual heating elements to accommodate voltage of 120 or 230 volts without a problem.

The brush on the Steambrush is removeable and the unit comes with a removable lint pad. It weighs about 1.5 pounds and comes with a travel bag for taking it where ever you go.

The Steambrush retails for around $35.
