We got a new toy, I mean tool–the CONAIR Turbo ExtremeSteam® Handheld Fabric Steamer–the most powerful handheld steamer on the market. Being someone that loathes ironing so much I only have a handful of shirts that need ironing ever, I knew it wouldn’t get a ton of action in the laundry room. However, I’m still here to announce, every home tool arsenal needs one of these for a few really good reasons.
1. Our sofa has never been more fresh. Running the steamer over our upholstered furniture has given it new life! The steam deodorizes and sanitizes without using any chemicals. Our couch is brighter than ever and I never have to pay to have it professionally cleaned again! (It costs less than one upholstery cleaning, anyway!)
2. No more ironing home linens. It’s better to have no curtains than wrinkled curtains in my book. Which is saying a lot because I think curtains add such a softness to a space. I used to dread washing ours, procrastinating it probably longer than I should, so that I wouldn’t have to crank out the ironing board and settle in for a long ironing session. Now I just hang them up and do a few passes and they are wrinkle free. The same is true for our cloth napkins, pillows and bed linens–I’ll be honest, I’ve never ironed an entire sheet, but having the part that folds over straight and crisp brings me so much joy.
3. Protect against bed bugs and dust mites. This steamer gets so hot (50% hotter than other steamers), it can actually kill bed bugs and dust mites just by going over your mattress with it. And if you don’t have that problem–don’t google bed bugs! You’ll never be able to sleep again! Just keep occasionally steaming your mattress and you’ll be protected against that nightmare in the future. Read more about our mattress right here. (psst-still love it)
4. Lastly, it actually is top notch at getting wrinkles out of clothing, no matter how delicate or stubborn. It only takes 40 seconds to heat up and a few more to steam the item–no ironing boarded needed. Which by my calculations is SO much faster and economical than letting the shower attempt to steam out your outfit of the day (guilty).
