Frequently Asked Questions

Does a steamer do the same thing as an iron?


Yes it does but there are differences. An iron has a flat metal surface that uses heat (and steam) to press creases out of clothes.

A steamer removes wrinkles without direct contact with the fabric, instead using a jet of stem directed at the clothing but not actually touching it. Steamers are perfect for delicate fabrics like silk, satin, jersey and chiffon or for those difficult-to-iron ruffles and getting wrinkles out of a suit jacket.

Irons are ideal if you want a crisp finish and sharp creases and are best for fabrics such as cotton and linen.
