I Love My: Steamer

When asked what I wanted for my 23rd birthday, I had one response: a steamer.  I didn't know if this meant I was officially an adult or just proved that I had been a fashion major, but either way, that's all I wanted.

My senior year of high school I worked at aerie by American Eagle and I was the go-to girl when it came to steaming clothes.  During overnight floorset changes, I would spend almost the entire 12-hour shift steaming every article of clothing.

Throughout college, I had an iron and a small ironing sheet.  Desperate times call for desperate measures and the night before graduation, I steamed not only my dress for dinner, but my graduation gown by hanging them in my bathroom while I showered.  They then got sent to my two roommates separate bathrooms.  It did the trick!

I decided it was time for a steamer.  I wanted to make sure it was small enough that I could throw it in a bag and take it with me.  The first steamer I tried was the perfect size for travel, but didn't work.  Then I found this Conair one and fell in love!  It's a little bigger than the first one I bought, but it works so much better and it still easy to travel with.

The steamer I use is the Conair ExtremeSteam Professional Handheld Garment Steamer GS23. It has two different temperature settings and heats up in 75 seconds.  Included with the steamer, you get three different attachments to use for different fabrics.

I got my steamer from Elder Beerman, but you can get it at Target for just $26!
