I don’t know anyone who likes to do chores, with the exception of my friend Lovelys, who apparently looooves doing the dishes. Needless to say, she’s welcome to come by for dinner at my house any time she wants.
Dishes aside, the one household task that I truly dread is ironing my clothes, especially since I usually do a few laundry runs at the same time. The whole idea of pulling out and setting up the awkward ironing board, and then spending precious time trying not to ruin the garment at hand by burning it or ironing the seam tracks into the fabric, just seems…tedious.
That’s where the Joy Mangano mini steamer comes in. Back in my retail days, I worked at Zara, and I used to love the simplicity and usefulness of the steamers that we used to de-wrinkle garments with. This little thing seems to be much more compact, although it does come in a variety of sizes. Judging from the reviews, this gadget does just what it promises to do – “iron” the clothes gently, without the worry of ruining the fabric, or the hassle of the ironing board. Love the compact design of the steamer, and the colors are nice and bright! And at the mere $30 to $40 bucks, I think I’m sold!
