It can be annoying at times when you put on a shirt for a day and realize that it is completely wrinkled. At this point, you can choose to take out the ironing board and iron, fill the iron with water, wait for the iron to heat up, and then iron the shirt for 5 minutes. Or, if you're pressed for time and don't want to iron, you can just pick up a new shirt... unless you have a garment steamer.
Both does the same thing: to de-wrinkle your clothes, but garment steamers and irons are different in a few ways. And depending on your preferences and lifestyle, one may be a better investment than the other.
Here are 6 reasons why a garment steamer might be a better fit for you than a traditional iron.
1. Removes odour and kills germs, bacteria and viruses
Steam kills most of the bacteria in your clothes and removes those smelly odours that build up from perspiration. SteamOne steamers are tested and certified to eliminate 99.99% of germs, bacteria and even viruses (Covid-19). Leaving your clothes smelling fresher than ever.

2. Not just for clothes
Steamers are great for not only removing creases from your home furnishings, steam kills most germs and odours in the process too. It’s great for freshening up your bedding, curtains, pillows, carpets and much more. We've heard customers using our steamers on baby strollers and baby car seats!
3. Freshens your clothes between washing or dry cleaning
Keep your clothes fresh between wearing and washing, especially your dry clean clothing and light wearing items like cardigans and jackets. Constant exposure to the wear and tear of washing your clothes can leave them looking worn out. Steaming helps your clothes last longer and saves you money and time!
4. Safe & gentle on all fabrics
Steaming works great on all kinds of fabrics (denim, cotton, wool, linen, silk, batik, etc) from the most delicate to the thickest. SteamOne steam blast is maintained at 98 degree Celsius by a high precision thermostat. It penetrates through the fibers to remove wrinkles and avoid any risk of burning or unintended glossing. Even your clothes with beads, buttons, lace, or sequins can withstand the heat without any damage.
5. Healthy, clean and hygienic
Steaming requires nothing more than water and heat and, therefore, is non-polluting compared to the use of detergents and other chemical agents.
