I once read that an average person (aka mother) spends something like 4 months of her life IRONING!! Now who knows just how accurate that number is but all I know is I do NOT have time for that. So this Mother’s day I decided to do myself a favor and ditch the iron and replace it with my new Conair steamer. The thought of lugging the ironing board out, waiting for the iron to warm up and sometimes having the misfortune of not realizing that article of clothing should NOT have been ironed (ugh) is just a distant memory for me now!!
So in my journey to find the best steamer, I was SO fortunate to partner with the #1 selling garment steamer brand, Conair! They pointed me in the direction of their Conair Turbo ExtremeSteam Handheld Fabric Steamer and gifted me the product to try out and now I’m never looking back! Here’s what has changed since I ditched the old steal plate.
With the steamer I now:
- Get wrinkles out of my clothes in half the time it normally would take me to iron
- Can use it on delicate fabrics I would have ruined with the iron (and you’ve seen most of my closet so you know that’s winning!)
- Clean!! It removes odors, kills dust mites and just leaves a generally freshness to the clothing
It’s super easy to store and heats up in less than 1 minute. I’m sold! Not only is it great to use at home, but also on the go! You all know I love to travel and I usually pack (yes sometimes overpack – guilty!) clothes that I have photoshoots with so wrinkles are NOT an option. Also when your traveling you never know what type of iron they have in the room, I usually see the SMALLEST little iron that takes forever to heat up. I just took the steamer to Dallas for the RewardStyle conference and was able to unpack and hang all my outfits in no time! I felt great I wasn’t spending half the day ironing or looking like a wrinkled mess!
