Types of Clothes Steamers

Blue Steam Force Iron

Steam Iron

Steam irons work like traditional irons, but they include steam holes on the soleplate. Hot steam relaxes fibres in clothing, which is why they tend to be more effective at removing stubborn wrinkles than their dry iron counterpart.

Free-Standing Steamers

Free-standing steamers use a jet of steam to iron out wrinkles in clothing. The clothes must be suspended on a hanger, so most free-standing steamers come with a rod to hang your clothes from.
Handheld steamer

Handheld Steamers

Handheld steamers are like free-standing steamers but more compact. They’re easy to store and a small steamer can be packed in a suitcase.

Clothes Steamer Features

  • Two fabric brush attachments in-front of a handheld steamer

    Fabric Brush

    Most steamers come with a fabric brush attachment that helps the steam penetrate thicker fabrics.
  • Woman steaming curtains

    Steam Variant

    Different steam variants are an important feature on a steamer. Some steamers allow you to determine how much steam comes out at a time. This is controlled through a pressure gauge or a switch on the steaming unit.
  • Someone pouring water into a steamer reservoir

    Anti-Spill Cap

    The anti-spill cap will ensure no water will leak out while you’re using your steamer.
  • Indicator light on a free-standing steamer

    Indicator Light

    An indicator light on your steamer unit will tell you two things: when your steamer is done heating up and ready to use, or when the reservoir is low on water. Most machines have both and will use two different colours so you know what the light means.
