A little bit of background history
Garment care has had a reputation of being difficult and boring, and from a historical point of view, it’s actually true. Caring for clothes was a necessity, and in every home, you would find remedies and methods for everything. That was before the time of fast fashion and the growing culture of overconsumption that we are seeing today.
More and more people are starting to appreciate textiles and clothes for the valuable resources they actually are, and that’s why we are seeing an upward trend of interest in garment care. The primary benefit for the environment and the wallet is to make the clothes we already own last longer. But then we need to care for them in the correct manner.
Modern tools for garment care
Steamery has dedicated years to developing modern and easy-to-use products for clothing care. But, what’s for what? In this gentle introduction, we will explain all the products and what they’re used for. It’s up to you to decide which ones you can’t live without.
Getting rid of wrinkles and creases from clothes
A steamer uses steam to smooth out wrinkles and creases, and requires no ironing board. The hot steam makes the garment look fresh and unused, while also reducing bacteria and unwanted odors. Steamery offers three handheld steamers: Cirrus 1 Handheld Steamer
, Cirrus 2 Handheld Steamer
, and Cirrus 3 Iron Steamer
- Works on all kinds of garments (except fabrics that stain from water)
- Requires no ironing board and is easy to bring when traveling
- Great to refresh clothes that are worn, but not dirty
- Practical for steaming home textiles, like curtains and table cloths
- The water tank needs a refill approximately every third garment
