Bernadette + Steamers



When: Last week, due to fluctuating weather patterns and my continuation of white pants season.

I realized after uploading these pictures that there was one very large irritating factor in them - creases.  Creases on the softest silk lace shirt that I pulled out of the closet in the early morning hours when it was hard to see.  I could have sworn the blouse had already been steamed and put back in its place, but to my dismay that was not the case.  

Had I pulled out the handy Jiffy Steamer I received as a gift from my mother on my birthday 2 years ago, I could have avoided this disaster.  The steamer takes seconds to heat up and is quick to release the worst lines from your clothes.  It is a lifesaver and I honestly don't know how I lived without one for so long.  Here is my reasoning for putting a Jiffy steamer on your Christmas list this year:

Pros:
  • Silk Blouses
  • Skirts
  • Evening gowns 
  • Lightweight pants
  • Mobile
  • Easy to use and fill
Cons:
  • Hard to use on cotton dress shirts
  • Handle gets extremely hot after long use
  • Burning yourself on occasion will occur


That said you may also want to check out Jiffy's article on allergens in the home and how you can cut down on them while you sleep.  I am definitely going to try it!
