The best travel fabric steamer is easily found online by reading reviews and checking ratings. There is always more than one best anything depending on need, preference and price. One person may believe a fabric steamer is best because it is portable and another may think the price is what made it the best choice. What I am going by in this article is how it is rated and performs. A travel fabric steamer must first of all be small and light enough to carry in a suitcase with no problem. It also needs to get hot fast just in case I am in a hurry for a meeting and I realize my suit is wrinkled and needs a little steaming here and there.
Most people don’t want to spend a fortune on a travel fabric steamer either, so price does matter. However, when it comes right down to it I will pay more if I think it’s worth the money just to get a quality garment steamer that gets the job done without any glitches. I use two fabric steamers, one for travel and one for home to use on furniture and drapes as well as clothing now and then. Both of them have been worth every cent I paid and are now must haves.
When it comes to top rated travel steamers, Steam Fast has one that is worth a look see. It is the Steam-Fast FS-435 Compact Steamer and it has 67 reviews with a 4 star rating on Amazon and is priced under $25, which is excellent. This may be my next travel fabric steamer when mine finally blows its last breath of steam or I might just get it as a backup while it’s priced low. Some of the features include: fabric brush, lint remover, rubber accessory housing, 7 oz water capacity, 12 minutes of continous steam with 800 watts of power. This portable fabric steamer is a winner in my book and I recommend checking it out.
The Jiffy Steamer Esteam Travel Steamer is another portable garment steamer to take a peek at. While it does cost more at $50 plus it also has more features and a 1 year warranty. The basic features include: 8 oz water capacity, 600 watts of power, 15 minutes of continuous steam, 9 ft. power cord and an auto shut off when it runs dry. You can read the 198 reviews and 4 star ratings to get specific details, which is the best way to make a comparison.
I advise reading reviews on both to compare in depth, but just knowing the basics I am leaning toward the Steam Fast model. For the money it sounds like the better deal, but everyone has their must haves. I don’t know about you but I’m off to compare the reviews.
