If you think a fabric steamer might be for you, keep reading for a look at some Jiffy Steamer’s best products.
Best Jiffy Steamers on the Market
Why Jiffy Steamer Is Worth Every Penny
If you want the best, sometimes you've got to go with the original.
And in the world of fabric steamers, Jiffy Steamer is the original. Since 1940, this American company has been producing innovative, high quality steamers.
Because of their history and reputation within the industry, Jiffy Steamers are well known for reliability and quality of their products.
Jiffy Steamer makes steamers for just about every use including home and commercial use. Whether you're looking for a small steamer to take along on your next business trip or need something to shape leather goods, the odds are good that Jiffy makes it.
This means they have a wide range of experience that can be applied to products across the board.
Things to Consider Before Buying a Steamer
If you’re thinking about buying a steamer, it’s important to understand what they are and how they work.
Fabric steamers have two main uses:
Releasing wrinkles and refreshing clothing and other fabrics
Cleaning clothing or other items that can only be dry cleaned
The great thing about steamers is how easy they make it to remove wrinkles from clothing. You won’t be able to get the same crisp, pressed look available with an iron, but the time and effort saved with a steamer is irreplaceable.
What Will You Use Your Steamer For?
Steamers come in a few different shapes and sizes, so it’s important to get a good idea of how you’ll use the steamer before picking one up.
If you think you’ll primarily use your steamer around the house, Jiffy Steamer has some excellent floor models that hold enough water to make it through quite a bit of wrinkled laundry or dry clean only outfits in need of a refresh.
But, if you travel often and need to keep your clothes looking neat and professional for that important dinner or meeting, you might want to consider a portable steamer. Jiffy has a few handheld models that can fit easily in a suitcase and warm up quickly when needed.
