Of Steam Iron and Steam Cleaners

Steam does wonders. The other day at a Homelife exhibition, I almost bought a steam iron, you know the type that you can just go over the crinkled fabric and voila! it's all smooth and ironed out. Sometimes I wonder if it really works that well or is it just a magic trick that only the sales personnel is trained to do.

Homes with wall-to-wall carpeting definitely can do with steam cleaners or at least one at home. Carpets are landing pads for dust and over time, they become homes for dust-mites, the cause of a host of health problems.

  2. i've seen those steam irons in shopping malls, you just swipe the thing over hung clothes and viola!! i think they are amazing, but yet i'm using conventional iron at home, sweat dripping over sweat whenever i do my ironing..

  3. I prefer steam iron. They are better. :D

  4. Mei Teng, I'm sure they really work. Saves time and energy too with the right technique.

    SK, LOL! That's why I send my clothes to the dhoby..

    T, this one is also a steam iron only thing is you don't need an ironing board or a flat surface as the clothes can be ironed even from a clothes hanger.
