Garment Steamer and Its Uses in Finishing Clothing Items

What is a garment steamer? 

In general terms, a garment steamer uses the technique of steam to remove wrinkles from the garments to give it a natural look. A garment steamer works best on delicate fabrics like silk, woollen, or cashmere to give it a fresh look. In garment finishing, both garment steamers and steam iron can be used. 

Unlike traditional irons that press clothes to smooth out wrinkles, garment steamers emit a gentle stream of hot steam that relaxes the fabric fibres, making wrinkles and creases fall away. It does not press hard the heat, rather steam loosens fabrics to remove wrinkles.
