Who needs a steamer?
The disadvantage of conventional irons and steam generators is the inability to actively use them in the vertical steaming mode. This is inconvenient and difficult.
That is why the steamer was invented. The principle of its operation is identical to a steam generator: you pour water into a container, it heats up, evaporates and through a hose enters the handle with a nozzle. Hot steam escapes through the holes in the sole, smoothing out creases and creases in textiles. Although steamers do not have such a force of steam blow as in steam generators. More advanced models are equipped with a telescopic rack for comfortable smoothing of clothes, budget models are made compact with a small reservoir.
# A huge plus – no contact of the steamer with the fabric. Therefore, you can easily cope with capricious fabrics and forget about all the shortcomings of the iron, which we wrote about above (weasel, tan, fabric deformation).
# In addition, steamers easily cope with smoothing difficult places for ordinary ironing – seams, collars, cuffs, elastic bands, beading. After all, it is easier to handle a jet of steam – you just walk through the problem area and voila. They can freshen and fluff fur products without losing volume.
# It is very convenient to use the steamer during light cleaning, it can clean furniture, carpets, tiles, mirrors, disinfect children’s toys, because under the influence of hot steam, bacteria and dust mites are destroyed. An iron and steam generator are clearly not suitable for this task.
Of course, a steamer cannot compete with a full-fledged steam cleaner. In the steamer, the heated steam is supplied by gravity, and in the steam cleaners, the compressor forms a high-pressure steam jet that can cope with various contaminants.
