Sick of racking up hefty dry cleaning bills? If the crisp seams on your shirts are costing you more trouble than their worth, it may be time to think about bagging yourself a steamer. At £99, the Rowenta Compact Valet offers professional results at a reasonable price.
Particularly great for delicates, the Compact Valet gets to work in just 60 seconds with its powerful 30g/minute vertical steam function. Tiny creases are blasted away with steam with no pressure on your behalf at all, falling out effortlessly.
Complete with a telescopic pole for easily steaming hanging garments, the Compact Valet, as its name suggests, is small enough to be stored away with ease, and will take little more cupboard space than what you’ve already given over to an iron and ironing board.
We had a quick test of the Compact Valet a few weeks back, and was impressed at how easy it was to get great results worthy of a dry cleaning session from the steamer. It was definitely required far less effort than an iron, and if you’re regularly ironing shirts, trousers or suits, this’ll save you plenty of time.
