Preparation for work The first thing to do before turning on the appliance is to pour water into a special compartment or into the boiler of the steamer. We recommend using distilled water or at least filtered water. This condition is especially important for regions with high water hardness. If you use hard tap water, we predict that the device will soon fail, and you will have to take it to a service center. Next step: turn on the device and wait for a while. The iron should warm up. As soon as steam begins to escape from the special holes, you can start working. How to prepare things for steaming.

A steamer – what is it
A steamer is an apparatus that emits a jet of steam, which acts on the fabric and smoothes its structure. It is small in size and looks like a mini vacuum cleaner. It has a water tank and a hose with a nozzle. Due to its dimensions, the unit can be hung on the shoulder and will not interfere.
The main task of the device is to iron textiles, disinfect, remove allergens and dust from clothes and eliminate unpleasant odors. For this, only water is used, no chemical cleaners are needed.
Types of steamers
There are such varieties:
By the principle of work:
Horizontal and vertical steamers
Horizontal steamers are used for cleaning and ironing clothes, while vertical steamers are used when working with curtains. The vertical curtain steamer allows you to manipulate without removing the curtains from the eaves, which will save time and effort.
According to their design and purpose, steamers are of various types, among which are:
Steamer with vertical stand;
Steamers, steam cleaners;
The first type of steamer is manual , the simplest and most convenient to use. Low power and affordable price make it easy to use when traveling, where there is no way to use an iron. Another feature of them is that they can be used as a small kettle in order to boil water on the road.
Devices of the first type have a tank, the volume of which is provided for steaming clothes for 10-15 minutes. During this time, you will have time to iron two or three things from the suitcase.
Nice steam, stylish design and small size are the main advantages of this category.
The second type of steamer is vertical . This group can be divided into two subgroups. Steamers costing up to five thousand rubles or more. Devices from the first subgroup are affordable, do well with light tasks in garment care and small ironing around the house.
Most often, these steamers with a rack have only one mode, low power, a plastic iron, simple operation on the body and a relatively small tank volume. Also in this category there is a modest equipment and it is not possible to add water at any time.
