I am TERRIBLE at ironing, so I make it a point to not buy clothing that needs to be ironed.
Except lately, it seems that I bought a lot of clothing that needs to be ironed. And I’m not wearing any of it because it’s wrinkled. So, I’m wondering about steamers.
Are they good? Do they work as well as an iron? Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced one?

Rowenta makes a good steamer/iron. I love it!! I got it from Macy’s last Christmas. It was $99.

I have a steamer but I tried to use it for my clothes and it didn’t work as well as the iron.

I bought a steamer a couple years ago, and it is crap. I never use it.
Like you, I hate to iron, but ironing is less effort than using that stupid steamer I wasted $30 on.

I HATE ironing with a passion. I especially hate it when I accidentally iron creases into an area that wasn’t supposed to be creased! I got a Conair steamer from Costco last year (sorry, couldn’t find a link from their website for you) and I love it. It was on sale for about $75 (regular $100) and it comes with attachments too. Makes my life so much easier, and I think it’s faster than ironing!

I would die without my steamer. I also have a Rowenta- I think we got it at Kohls. I also used to have a Conair one years ago.
I use it everyday. I’ve used it on curtains as well as clothing. Definitely worth purchasing!

All I use is a steamer….no iron for me! I LOVE it. I use it pretty much everyday to freshen up my clothes and pull out any wrinkles. An iron would be better though if you want to keep the crisp crease in a pair of pants or similar. Most of my clothes are made of fabrics that are not so friendly with the iron so it is great for me. Plus anything that hangs with pleats or has fabric bunched at certain seams always steams nicely and you don’t get other weird iron lines happening. I highly recommend one!

My dryer has a steam feature that works pretty well. As long as the clothes don’t sit too long the wrinkles come out fine. It also helps to make sure to do them on a lower spin setting.
