The low down If you have never used a good clothes steamer before, try one – you will never go back! With a good clothes steamer you can quickly and efficiently remove wrinkles from even the most delicate fabrics and easily smooth out those difficult and fiddly areas such as under the armpit - without harsh creases.
But there are other benefits too:
- You can get rid of that bulky ironing board (more space in the stock room!)
- You won’t burn or scorch the fabric
- You can use them to simply refresh clothes or upholstery – they help get rid of odours
- You can save on dry cleaning bills – lots of fabrics (such as linen, wool, silk* and upholstery) can’t be ironed but come up beautifully with a steamer.
Choosing the right clothes steamer
We stock a wide range of professional clothes steamers that we have hand selected because we believe they present the best offering in their class – in terms of functionality, power, and usage time and of course price.
So which is the best clothes steamer for you? Handheld or upright? The first decision is probably ‘handheld or upright’? Handheld steamers are very easy to manoeuvre light-weight and heat up quickly.
They are perfect for home use, a quick refresh at an event or sporadic use in a smaller outlet. Our E8 hand held steamer will run for about 10 minutes before it’s tank needs re-filling and is very reasonably priced. Upright steamers are better for professional or commercial use, or for larger quantities.
