Shark's Garment Steamer. It was on sale at Target and I figured I try it and if I hated it, I'd take it back.
I have such mixed feelings about it. It worked WONDERS on pressing my cotton curtains, table runners, delicate dresses and bedding (you can use it on couches too). I literally couldn't stop using it on everything in the house! However it was TERRIBLE for pressing my hubby's shirts and pants and unfortunately that's 90% of the ironing I do. It was difficult to do, you hang the shirt from the door and then steam and yielded poor results. They looked like a pulled them directly from dryer and hung (that old trick that doesn't fool anyone).
Now I have a dilemma: I don't want to take it back because I love how it works on certain items, but I don't have the money for both a new iron and steamer. I paid for the steamer by selling some clothes to a consignment shop. I guess the lesson is, a steamer doesn't replace an iron. What do you use and what should I do?
