Hard to use and doesn't iron clothes properly,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SALAV® GS16-DJ Garment Portable Steamer Vertical Hot Steam Iron Easy Clothes Vapor Steamer Fabric Sanitizer Professional Machine Ironing Sterilize Remove Wrinkles 1.8L Capacity & 1500W Power
Really sorry to give this product such a low rating as I was so excited about it before it arrived. I read all the reviews and, while a little unsure, I felt that this might be the iron of the future! It's not.
Firstly it's really difficult to use alone as you essentially have to steam and stretch the fabric simultaneously.Meanwhile there's the strong possibility that you will burn your fingers from the steam, even if you use the glove that's provided.
Secondly, and fairly fundamentally considering it's an iron, it doesn't iron clothes properly! Unlike a normal iron which presses the clothes nice and flat, this just deals with the most minor creases. At first I thought it was my bad technique but my girlfriend has tried and my shirts still look half ironed. So disappointing.
I was tempted by this product as I thought I may no longer have the hassle of buying (and storing) an iron and ironing board but now I wish I'd gone conventional. Also, although it's small the Salav takes up quite a bit of room and it's heavy.
