Has any one every used one of these? Watching the late night infomercials and they advertise one on there. Apparently they are common in dress shops. You steam the clothes hanging rather than pressing with an iron. Supposedly excellent for suits pleats and fabrics that scorch or melt. Also means you can hang your curtains after washing them and then steam them vertically.



Brave Words. I've heard them before from thousands of species across thousands of worlds, since long before you were created, but now, they are all Borg.

Our local Postie Plus has one I think. My cousin has just got one and loves it except the pet hair thing fell to bits on the first use. She reckons it does shirts really good, but you have to hang onto the bottom of the garment and she is trying to figure out a way to let go and do the very very bottom. I told her to put it on her son and steam it that way. He is a cheeky bugger and that was payback. I asked her if it took wrinkles out of faces. :) That would be very handy for me that would.

Toni - watch the infomercials - there is one on there that claims that - as long as you use it every day - and they don't disclose the price BUT if you had it done professionally, it would cost you $1600! What is the price you ask - who gives a .....

Ravenseyes ... how much ironing so you do? Ironing in this household is done at 100mph on the absolute neccessities with the old Sunbeam iron. Where would you store the "steamer"? Not for me.

The one I saw advertised was 6 payments of $59.95, but if you ordered now you only pay 5 payments of $59.95. Cuzzie reckons it does do a really good job. Didi, it doesn't take up much room in her laundry at all. Less room than an ironing board would. I don't iron, unless I have to or it is material for patchworking. :)

I do quite a bit of ironing and I also like the bit about it can lessen how often clothes have to go to the drycleaners. I have business suits and shirts for me, daughter's school uniform has pleats and linen blouses and a blazer. Pinning and ironing the pleats in her skirts is a mission and a half. I've got plenty of storage space so I was thinking about it. Toni - did you cousin buy the TOBI one that is one the late night infomercials ?

An iron is a pureley decorative item that usually sits on top of the four legged surfboard in the back bedroom. Its only uses are to weight down things that have been glued, or press dried flowers :D
