Last year, we showed you 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. Now you don't need the large, wheeled contraption you see at stores. A handheld option like Rowenta's will do just fine and is much easier to handle. Think of it as a preppy power drill.
Be careful. Steam is about 200° F.
For best results, steam clothes right before wearing them.
Lightly brush fabric with the steamer head, allowing steam vapors to pass through the material.
Utilize gravity and weight by hanging pants by the cuffs.
Avoid drips by keeping steamer upright and perpendicular to the floor.
