Does anyone have one? Is it worth the money?<br><br>
I am horrible at ironing. I seem to create more new wrinkles and creases when I try to iron things like dress shirts and pants. I guess I just never learnt the right technique. I thought a garment steamer my be easier to use.<br><br>
This is one I saw at Canadian Tire, <a href="http://www.canadiantire.ca/browse/product_detail.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=1408474396672741&bmUID=1214854078449&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524443302713&assortment=primary&fromSearch=true#reviews" target="_blank">http://www.canadiantire.ca/browse/pr...h=true#reviews</a><br><br>
but the reviews we not favorable overall for this particular model. Does anyone have one they would reccomend?

I have a rowenta steamer and either I don't know how to use it properly or steamers don't work like they do on tv because I can't get wrinkles out of most things without using the iron.<br><br>
Some things like sweaters do ok with just the steam but everything else I can't "just" steam.

I have a Jiffy steamer and I love it! I originally purchased it when I thought I was going to sell clothes on eBay professionally (which I didn't wind up doing after all), but I still find it super handy for our clothes as an alternative to ironing (I am vision impaired and find the steamer much easier). It wasn't cheap though ($200 2 years ago), so it would depend, I think, on how much dressy clothing you need to steam, and how often, in terms of cost-effectiveness.<br><br>
HTH!
