Recently, we mentioned the perfect way to iron a shirt. But sometimes you simply want to remove a few creases, not press your clothes to a crisp finish. For those days, a steamer is a sartorial lifesaver—and much more effective than hanging your jacket near a hot shower. But you don't need the large, wheeled contraption you see at stores. A handheld option like Rowenta's will do just fine and is a lot more easy to handle. We learned about this little wonder from a stylist who says he stopped using the bulky "professional grade" steamers because this one simply works better. It heats up quickly and comes with a fabric brush and lint pad to remove threads, hairs and fuzz. But most importantly, it provides a wide, even stream of steam at the touch of a button. Think of it as a preppy power drill.
