Good Bye Ironing, Hello Steaming

Posted | 2 comments

I despise ironing.  No, really.  I have a huge list of things I would rather be doing than ironing.  And the lackluster results of a $50 iron and new ironing board are a constant reminder of my frustration.

A few years ago, I bought a handheld version and thought “wow, this is what all the buzz is about?”  Needless to say, the results were pretty awful.

But, I decided to keep an open mind and had more conversations with people who really love their steamers.

Enter, my new steamer, which arrived last week:

SteamFast SF-407 1500-Watt Fabric Steamer

What I love about this steamer:

  • It took me less than 5 minutes to unpack and set up.
  • The steamer heats up within 30 seconds, ready for use.
  • It has produced great results in a short amount of time with silk and cotton items.
  • It doesn’t take up an extraordinary amount of space (I have it set up in my bathroom, right by my closet).
  • It has a little spot for a hanger at the top to hang the item I am steaming.
  • It comes with a pad that serves as a mini board to steam against while protecting my hand from heat.
  • It has wheels so if I accidentally pull it, it moves instead of tipping.
  • Who doesn’t love (and completely believe) the Good Housekeeping seal of approval?!

  1. Ok, I officially LOVE this steamer!! I have been wanting one for a long time…for many purposes…reupholstery projects…getting wrinkles out of EVERYthing, without having to iron. I’ve looked around just a bit and was afraid to buy a cheaper priced model and too cheap to spend money on higher priced models. Your recommendation convinced me to go ahead and spend the $50. That price was SO reasonable and it came with high ratings!

    I ordered on Tuesday, received on Thursday and steamed my curtains tonight!!


    • Glad to hear it! And thanks for the reminder – my curtains could use a good steaming too.
