About this deal
Of all the travel steamers we tested, the True & Tidy Handheld Garment Steamer stood out the most and is the one to undeniably add to your suitcase. This colorful unit weighs just 1.5 pounds, and it breaks down into two pieces, making it extremely easy to stash in a bag of any size. We loved that its water reservoir is completely see-through, which allowed us to monitor exactly how much water was left. And it excelled in our testing, removing tough wrinkles with just a few passes, thanks to its powerful steam and stainless steel soleplate. The last thing you want on your wedding day is to accidentally scorch your wedding dress—which is why we recommend the Conair Turbo Extreme Steam for delicate items. This steamer comes with a unique "delicates bonnet" attachment that helps to diffuse the steam, yet it doesn't hamper the unit's effectiveness. It was able to remove wrinkles from fabric in just a few passes in our testing, and we were impressed that it heated up in less than a minute, as well. Key specs – Type: Iron and upright steamer; Dimensions: 168 x 40 x 40cm (HWD); Weight: 4kg; Tank capacity: 1.1L; Heat-up time: 70secs; Continuous steam: Yes
Likewise, on heavier fabrics like jeans and shirts, it continued to impress. In fact, we even used it on an old sofa and saw pleasing finishes. While it sometimes helped to use slower “strokes”, we consistently witnessed smooth results. Steaming is the modern way to enjoy fresh, crease-free clothes. Garment steamers heat up in seconds and are easy to use, including on soft furnishings like sheets and curtains. Most offer a range of settings so you can adapt the power to your fabric and avoid any damage. Best of all, there’s no need to faff around with an ironing board!Setup is straightforward and it’s easy to use: the steamer heats up in just 35 seconds and immediately sets to work with a surprisingly powerful jet of steam at its highest setting (there are three fabric modes to choose from). The steam plate’s ceramic coating can also easily withstand repeated use on buttons, zips and other features, which have a tendency to result in scratches.
Steamers are effective at sanitizing clothing due to the hot temperature of their steam, but they don’t necessarily clean your garments. The hot air kills bacteria, but it doesn’t get rid of dirt, grime, odors, or sweat that may be on your clothing. There's one major downside to this steamer, and that's its size. The unit is about 1 foot tall and weighs over 3 pounds, making it one of the largest options on this list. It wouldn't be good for frequent fliers who only travel with a carry-on, but we think it would come in handy at weddings or other special events, in particular.
Using the Beautural handheld garment steamer was nothing like we’d expected. For a product in this price range, I – personally – had preconceptions about it being somewhat shoddy when it came to its primary application; this was not the case at all, though. The best fabric steamers offer a range of steam settings, allowing you to alter the power depending on the delicacy of the fabric – whether that be cotton, linen, silk or viscose. Most steamers require you to hang your garment for steaming. If you’re traveling and you don’t have a clothing rod handy, you can hang the item from the bathroom shower rod or from the doorknob on your hotel room door.
