Does anyone use a garment steamer?

If anyone has a steamer, uses a steamer, gave their steamer to Goodwill because they never used it, please let me know. I'm thinking about buying one.


I'm not looking for specific brand recommendations. I'm just looking for guidelines about what is useful/not useful. For example, one brand which was well-reviewed had a tank large enough to steam clothes for one hour. I don't plan on steaming garments for an hour!


NO SPAMMERS PLEASE.

I'm hoping it gets me out of having to iron sometimes.

I have a basic one, and it has a little tank, it does the job I bought it for $59 from KMART. I actually don't even use it much tbh.

Re: Does anyone use a garment steamer?

I had an inexpensive one once - didn't work too well and took forever to get wrinkles out - it was quicker to iron


The only time I've seen steamers that work are the heavy duty ones at clothing stores .... I'd love to have one of those (ok... so I wouldn't have anywhere to store something that I'd use maybe once a month - if that)


have you checked consumer guide and reports? That might be a better place to get recommendations
