I’m listing it because it’s pretty darn close ($22 instead of $20) but it has seriously changed my life: my handheld steamer. It takes minutes and I just feel so much more put together in wrinkle-free clothes.

u/galaxy_m104 · 70 pointsr/AskMen

A steam iron.

Ditch the heavy iron and the board! You'll never be more than 5-10 min away from wrinkle-free clothes and that helpful little purchase tucks away nicely in your luggage or day bag when you're taking a trip.

u/highermonkey · 56 pointsr/Waxpen

I already have one of these things. It steams the wrinkles out of my work clothes when I travel. Not sure how useful it would be for dabs though.

u/kzei · 49 pointsr/lifehacks

Honestly buy a little portable steamer for about 20 bucks. They work great, only take a few minutes, and don't require an ironing board. Something like this. I never used my iron because it was a hassle but I use this all the time.

u/harvey_milf · 26 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Not PP, but this is the steamer I use, and it was life changing:

u/valde0n · 21 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

i have a travel steamer from amazon.

i hate ironing. before the steamer, i used to pretend that the clothes while showering trick worked (it didn’t) or i would put my clothes in the dryer with a wet wash cloth. then, i started working as a sales associate in a store that did finishing touches on items, like steaming. it changed my life.

i like my travel steamer. i’ve had it for about 3 years now and use it very regularly — some times every day. it takes between 3 minutes to start boiling and steam. occasionally, though not often, it will sputter and splatter water droplets onto my clothes. i have definitely gotten $20 of use out of it. i usually use it for woven fabrics, though occasionally i will go over a knit with it. the steam only lasts for 1 or 2 garments and it’s shape (as compared to a large floor unit steamer) can be a bit awkward. i will definitely continue to use my travel steamer, but i also am thinking about purchasing a floor unit as I use the steamer so much.

some comments/tips i have after using a steamer for so long:

  • try to use distilled water. salt solids can build up in the boiling chamber, especially if you go below the “minimum” water level. they’re difficult to clean out.

  • the steamer will never fully replace an iron. you will never get the crispness on a cotton shirt that you would get with an iron.

  • steaming in the summer sucks because your clothes have the potential to stay moist in the humidity. it also makes the room humid.

  • you have to be careful with the steamer as you can burn yourself with the steam. also, with the travel steamer, you run the risk of pouring the boiling water out and burning yourself if you don’t hold it at least reasonably upright.
u/GoljansUnderstudy · 12 pointsr/medicalschool

Watch this.

Buy one of these.

Hang your suit/shirt in the bathroom and take a hot shower before your interview.

u/p-aeruginosa · 8 pointsr/medicalschool

Good idea to invest in a suitcase such as (Samsonite Aspire Xlite Wheeled Garment Bag, Black

Made specifically for traveling with suits. This plus a hand steamer such as (PurSteam Fabric Steamer, Fast-Heat Aluminum Heating Element With Travel Pouch, 180ml Capacity Perfect for Home and Travel You won’t regret it. Trust me

u/ZackD89 · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

A lot of your shirts look wrinkly. I'm sure packing them and traveling overseas is the cause, but I would definitely use a bit of that Amazon credit to buy a travel steamer like this.

u/icanhasbukkit · 6 pointsr/weddingplanning

I brought a [travel sized steamer ](PurSteam Fabric Steamer, Fast-Heat Aluminum Heating Element With Travel Pouch, 180ml Capacity Perfect for Home and Travel to my destination wedding and I would really recommend this to any bride. I steamed my veil, dress, and all of my bridesmaids' dresses. It's super convenient and portable!

u/adrhenum · 5 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

This is the one I bought

u/lemon_and_ribena · 4 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I actually wouldn't recommend mine because it leaks if you let water sit in it when you're not using it, but here's one that looks like it has good/real reviews!

u/themintyness · 3 pointsr/weddingplanning

I liked this steamer. My recommendation is that you try to put a cheese cloth or a clean cotton sock over it so waterspots don't get on the dress. Usually tap water works fine, but sometimes it can leave a lot of mineral deposits in the steamer--so if you have distilled water (you can get it from the grocery store) then that's better.

Yes! It isn't easy (I get a bit too impatient) but I have had success with a simple hand steamer. You can get them for very inexpensive on Amazon (I have something like this: Good luck!

u/RepresentReps · 2 pointsr/RepLadies

Honestly I bought mine from Ross (lol!) for like $10 about 5 years ago and it's still going strong. But there's a part of me that wants to replace it (no need to but just want a new one) and Ive been looking at this one:
For real youll find so much stuff to steam when you get it - scarves, dresses, everything you get from taboao! lol! and the mini ones are good for travel as well! I swear by the mini steamer!

u/omahamaho · 2 pointsr/SmallYTChannel

Look into getting a portable steamer like one of these, NOT an iron, I have something similar to this and its great for getting wrinkles out of your greenscreen wihh out having to take it down, also look into getting some clamps to stretch the screen out.

u/jixie007 · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I got this travel steamer. The quality of the device is good, I haven't had any issues with it. I have mixed feelings about the small size. On the one hand, the water reservoir is small, it gets done about 1.5 shirts before you have to refill it, which is a hassle if you're working on 4+ articles of clothing. On the other hand, even the small one gets tiresome to hold after a while, and I imagine a larger size would be much heavier. It would probably be easier if I just did one garment as-needed, but... if I'm doing one shirt and have several others that need steamed, why not do them all at once?

General steamer advice: use distilled water to prevent hard-water mineral build up. Do not fill the reservoir over the fill line, it will sputter out boiling water and possible mess up your cloths. Don't tilt it for the same reasons. I find hanging cloths (on a hanger) from the shower curtain rod the easiest.

u/Anemoni · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I use this cheap steamer. It hasn't given me any problems so far - it does have a small reservoir, and if you tilt it it'll spit water, but as long as it's upright it does the job well.

u/Rave-light · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Me too. I think steaming is easier.

You should try a small 20 buck ones. The travel sized? I bought one after an ASKreddit thread. I don't even own my iron anymore. I wanna move to a stand alone one in the future.
I have this one.
I like to steam while watching netflix but occasionally a quicky in the morning is great too. ;)

Worth thinking about!

u/ept91 · 2 pointsr/consulting

Thia is the one I have, but there are a ton on Amazon that are in the same price range and also have great ratings: Lemontec Portable Travel Garment Steamer 180ml Handheld Fabric Steamer Fast Heat-up Powerful Garment Clothes Steamer with High Capacity for Home and Travel

u/loratliff · 2 pointsr/delta

I travel with this one: Lemontec Portable Travel Garment...

It’s great!

u/MagdaTorts · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

I got this from Amazon and it's AMAZING! I've used it on all my dresses :)

u/SelfANew · 2 pointsr/AmItheAsshole

I use this one but it doesn't get the whole room steamy. I just have it near me (warning - steam is hot!).

u/cardiolove69 · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I have the URPOWER steamer it works great. I use regular sink water.

u/potatochique · 2 pointsr/onebag

Depending on how crease free you need your clothes to be, a packing folder will help. It’ll keep the fabric fairly wrinkle free, but there will be some light creasing on the parts where you folded the clothes.
If it needs to be totally wrinkle free, I’d buy a travel steamer instead. You can buy them on amazon for about $30 and they’re the size of a small hairdryer.

u/MavisGary · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

The steamer comments have been buried! Why? The humanity.

Hand steamer.

Steam shirts on hanger. Takes seconds. Never iron again. Don't you look smart?

u/meriendaselgato · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

Steam them! I hate ironing so much, but steaming clothes is somehow actually fun? I use this one and it's been great for me. It works on everything I own. Don't know if you can crease with a steamer though. Steaming is mostly good for wrinkle removal.

u/cakeverite · 1 pointr/consulting

Banana Republic all the way. My favorite are the tailored fit button-ups—bonus points they also come in petite sizes. Stiff collar, sleeves roll up nicely, and they withstand regular travel-packing + luggage abuse.

Not sure how you feel about washable silk, but these were a game-changer for me. They're so light and breathable, easy to pack and super comfy. They also dry quickly if you're someone like me and regularly spill coffee on yourself. :)

Last parting thought: Consider a portable garment steamer if you're not a fan of ironing. It's so much faster and can be a makeshift humidifier in cold, dry hotel rooms.

u/ShirleyFunke482 · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I have this one, no complaints so far. Heats up quickly and produces a lot of steam. My only complaint is that the steam comes out continuously, rather than at the push of a button but that's pretty minor. If I run out of water I just refill it.

u/k5berry · 1 pointr/Purdue

I’ll preface this in that it may not be allowed in dorms, but I really appreciated having a clothes steamer, just a cheap one like this. Quick and easy for getting wrinkles out of formal clothes you need to wear, or a t-shirt that’s been crumpled in a pile or some drawer for months. As for whether or not you can have it, I’m unsure it Res Life has an issue with it since it does emit heat and steam. However, I asked my RA (who admittedly was pretty chill), and he said he could care less. Largely because I imagine you have to actively be vying for the Idiot of the Century award to set something on fire using a steamer.

u/decrepitrope · 1 pointr/premed

I bought this one and I love it, but I’m pretty sure most of the ones you find on amazon will be fine. I chose this one because it doesn’t leak, heats up quickly, and has a large reservoir, but it is a little bulky so you may want to go with a smaller unit if you have a small carry on.

u/mctogher · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Better than an iron, which requires an ironing board, try a travel steamer.

Steamers can be super cheap.

>Bathing forces them to poop before they are ready and can cause dehydration.

I don't believe that but if it doesn't work for you then it doesn't work for you.
I'm just trying to help here.

u/RickySuezo · 1 pointr/navy

Buy yourself a hand steamer and never worry about it again.

u/Zeninit · 1 pointr/BehindTheClosetDoor

This is the one I use I upgraded from the older model (sending old one off with kid to college )

I like that it does not spit and the anti-leak design comes in handy when you are dancing to the music as you steam and don't keep it vertical. Quick heat and usually I don't need a refil and can steam a few pieces on one water fill. Plus it came via Amazon next day and if I didn't like it I could send it back with the 90-day full refund, and 24-month warranty.

u/DamienJaxx · 1 pointr/videos

While it may not be travel friendly if you stuff your suitcases, I use something similar to this. I've never once ironed my clothes, this is so much faster.

u/tinaaay · 1 pointr/internetparents

Try a clothing steamer, to use after washing and drying. Some clothing items wrinkle, and this is a great way to get them out. (IMO this is way easier than ironing clothes.)

u/ThereKanBOnly1 · 1 pointr/944

I've already got one like this. Will that work?

u/QueenNymeriaStark · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I purchased this mini from Amazon for its 3 year warranty.

I have a regular sized steamer and there is not a huge difference in quality of steaming between the two. I'd recommend it!
