I hate wrinkles. And I hate ironing. But I also really hate how expensive the dry cleaner is. I’ve found that my small apartment is the worst for keeping clothes wrinkle free because everything gets smooshed in the closet or crumbled on the floor (keeping it real).
While we were in Alaska, Julia and Thomas whipped out this amazing steamer. Most of my clothes were fine from being in the suitcase, but my hiking pants were horribly wrinkled. (Please don’t judge me for wanting to get rid of wrinkles in my hiking pants of all garments!)
Anyway, the steamer they used worked unbelievably well– even better than an iron would have done and definitely way faster. The best part is that it’s portable so you really can travel with it if you so choose to give up a fraction of your suitcase.
I immediately bought the steamer when I got back to NYC. Best $30 I’ve ever spent. THIRTY dollars. (That’s how much it costs me to dry clean three dresses in my neighborhood. Bam!)
I bought this Old Navy dress the other day and passed on the shopping bag and instead just rolled the dress into my handbag. Unfortunately my dress got very wrinkled. Fortunately I had my steamer on hand.
