How to Wrinkle Release With Steam

Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 8.55.43 PMI’ve partnered up with Home Right to review their stream machine, mostly because I dislike ironing so much that I haven’t used one in over a year. I’ve got to tell you, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this was to set up… almost too easy. I’m actually one of those people who will read a really, really good book and if there is too much suspense I’ll go ahead and skip to the last few pages and start reading the ending. I’ll still finish the entire book, I just get impatient and feel like I can’t take it anymore. I’m sure a one of you could relate.Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 9.16.33 PMAs I started reading the instructions on how to fill the steamer and empty it out, I felt like I was being taunted by all of these steamer “puzzle pieces” at the bottom of the box.  I just had to do something about it, so I quickly assembled what OBVIOUSLY looked like what you’d use to steam curtains. Feeling quite proud of myself, I plugged in the steamer and once the “ready” light came on I was steaming like a professional steaming lady.Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 9.17.16 PMWith water dripping on the floor and the stream billowing out of the top and bottom of the steamer, my husband asked “Is that the right tool? Its not really doing anything…” Realizing that he’s totally right, I respond with a sheepish “I have no idea why its not working, I even read (some of) the instructions…”  He opens the instruction booklet to show a picture of something very different than what I’m using… I laughed awkwardly, so embarrassing!Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 8.53.47 PMHe helped me attach the correct piece on the end and like magic the wrinkles started to steam right out. My embarrassment quickly turned to excitement as it also took half as much time versus the first go around. Steaming with this tool is done as easily as working in long rows (half the length of the curtains.) I would steam the top section by steaming a four foot long column (moving up and down) and moving over a bit and repeating again over the next section. Once the top was done I’d repeat on the bottom half. It was easy and saved me so much time (especially if I were to compare the time it would’ve taken to iron them by hand.)

Ta-Da!! Isn’t it funny how using the right tools (and reading instructions) can make the results so much better?! In case you were wondering, I partially assembled the floor steamer, it also connects with two extender poles so it will reach the floor. Another reason why puzzles and good instructions come with pictures to show you the way to do it.
