Style Solution: Explore these tips about steaming wrinkles away, ironing safely and efficiently and newer at-home dry cleaning processes.
STEAMING is a great way to freshen a garment without a trip to the dry-cleaners. After a day’s wear, hang your garment and remove sit-down wrinkles and elbow creases with a strong but gently flow of steam. It’s also great for re-setting pleats and creases. Steaming takes just moments, and avoids any scorching or shine that can develop when you use a conventional iron, especially on delicate fabrics.
I like the Jiffy Steamer portable model. You can see it in action in this video and order one at JiffySteamer.com. The $75 price may seem steep, but it’s a bargain compared to the dry-cleaner trips it can save. And if you enter the code IMAG37 you’ll get free shipping.
One client shared this nifty tip – she helps get sit-down and back-of-knee wrinkles out of her trousers by hanging them from the hem edge so the weight of the waistband/pocket area is pulling down on the wrinkled areas. Sometimes she even adds a second clip hanger to the waistband edge for extra weight.
