That's It: No More Ironing...I'm Searching for a Great Fabric Steamer Instead

I'm on the hunt. I've decided that the real solution to my ironing woes (read about how other Happy Slobs concur with my utter hatred of ironing in this old post: I Hate Ironing - and Other Happy Slobs Do To-- it's a classic post with comments that I LOVE!) is to find a great fabric steamer.

Just think! No more nasty, cranky ironing boards to contend with ever again. All I'll need to do - if I can find one of these elusive creatures - is to hang the garment up, steam it all over and then wear it. Voila! Easy as pie, and far better for my state of happiness than lugging around the ironing board and iron. Sure, it won't give crisp edges, but it WILL get out the wrinkles, of that I'm sure! And that's all that really matters to me.

I know, I know - some of you actually ENJOY ironing. :) I'm glad. I wish I was one of the Ironing Lovers of this world, but I'm simply not. I hate ironing, and you can tell. (Oops, did I let that slip? Yes, sometimes my clothes are apparently wrinkly...) So, I'm searching for a great fabric steamer. If any of you own one and love it, please let me know! Otherwise, I'll search on my own and post as soon as I find a great steamer!

Not yet Marilyn. :) I've been too sick with the flu lately to even THINK or worry at all about ironing!

But I am still on a quest...

I've heard that those steamers don't really work according to the consumers reports.
