Best Garment Steamers

A garment steamer, also called a clothes or iron steamer, is designed to remove wrinkles from clothes without applying any pressure to the fabric. It works by heating up water in a small tank, which turns into hot steam that smoothes creases. You don’t even have to put the steamer directly on clothes - just hang the garment up and hold the steamer a short distance away.

Benefits of garment steamers

  • Garment steamers are much gentler on delicate clothes than an iron, which can snag or burn items such as suits, dresses and silk blouses
  • They can save you time and space, as you don’t have to unpack or store a bulky ironing board
  • Portability is a plus, as handheld or portable steamers are lightweight and easy to pack into a suitcase if you travel frequently
  • A garment steamer can be used for a variety of purposes. You can also use it on linen, curtains and soft furnishings like tablecloths and bed sheets. Some people even attest to using them on sofa or car upholstery.

Does a garment steamer replace an iron?

Unfortunately, a garment steamer probably won’t be able to replace your iron completely.

  • While a garment steamer is more suited to smoothing out delicate fabrics, an iron is better than a garment steamer for natural or predominantly natural fabrics such as cotton, wool and denim.
  • Irons are also generally better for the task if you want to remove wrinkles from a large pile of clothes, as they often have a longer battery life.
  • If you want to wear an outfit straight after smoothing out creases, an iron is a better choice. Garment steamers can sometimes leave damp spots on clothes – not exactly the chic look you're going for with your silk shirt.

Investing in a garment steamer with variable steam control may help you avoid this moisture, as you can adjust the amount of steam. There are plenty of other handy features that garment steamers have. You can find out more about them by experimenting with the filters on the left-hand side of the page below.
