Frequently Asked Questions
Are steamers better than irons?
Well, we cannot answer this question in a direct yes or no. If you’re looking for more comfort and quick results, steamers should definitely be your choice. But, if you have the time and the patience to iron your dresses with precision it may give you an advantage on getting crisp. So, which one is better? It depends on the use.
Can steamers get rid of germs?
If they generate the amount of heat they professed, then it should be quite difficult for germs to survive under such heat. You can try on your dresses and other materials and see if they’re working. But we think you may need a steamer with more power to thoroughly get rid of germs.
Can garment steamer kill bed bugs?
In theory, it’s yes. It’s quite simple that steamers should generate a lot of heat. Heat is not toxic but is powerful enough to kill off bed bugs of all ages including their eggs as well. It says if a bed bug is under 113 F heat and if they’re exposed continuously for 90 minutes then they won’t survive. Steamers do generate a lot of heat which can rise up to 240 F. So, they should kill off bed bugs and other dust mites.
Is steaming better than ironing?
Again, this depends on the context. If you wanna get the most perfect wrinkle-free crisp dresses we’d say its still the hard-pressed irons that can be better.
But, steamers do a very good job in terms of getting you nice and wrinkle-free cloth within a short time. So it can vary from person to person.
Should I press down hard on the clothes in terms of using a steamer?
The steam technology built in the device will do the work. You don’t need to push or press down hard to make it work. But adding a bit of pressure may help.
Should my steamer replace iron?
Definitely, they can. If you don’t have that much free time and patience to sit there and iron all the clothes with accurate precision. Then we think its better for you to go for a steamer than an iron.
