    Default Upright Steam Iron/cleaner Thing

    Does anyone have one of these???? Do they work?? Our iron died on the weekend (as did the kettle - damn) so am thinking of investing in one of those Laura star thingies where you just hang the garment and run the steam hose over to remove wrinkles, but common sense tells me I could be dreaming if I think it really works lol

    Amanda... i too used have to buy an iron almost every year as they would seem to cark it easily.

    Your common sense is out of balance hun.. don't dream that the LauraStar works.. reality it ruddy works brilliantly..

    I paid $600- for my LauraStar G1 iron & ironing board package deal about 6 yrs ago




    I COULDN'T LIVE WITH OUT IT.. IT WORKS A TREAT EVERY TIME..

    It irons / steams through both sides of denim jeans & linen/ cotton with ease & it's almost impossible to burn delicates such as silk / satin etc providing you use the extra clip on iron plate thingy. I do hang up a lot of my clothes on hangers & just give them a steam with the Laura Star, works brilliantly.

    I no longer have dry cleaning bills for my kids school blazers, i hand wash them & just steam away with Laurastar...

    I use it to also steam the curtains, beds pillows etc kill off bed mite/ bug's etc, i have 2 asthmatics in my house....

    & i also use it to freshen up & steam up Floyd's bedding & blankies in winter time when its impossible to machine wash & line dry in 1 day due to cool weather...

    Ditto. I fold or hang away washing straight off the line.

    Thanks Deb, thats a great recommendation!!

    Di, I feel like you truly!!! I so don't want to do this ironing thing.... again.... ever. And that is where this line of thought came from.

    Live somewhere where you don't see neighbours/leave the premises more than once a fortnight. Steam cleaning is rputed to cut the ironing time in half.

    So compromising really!!!

    I use a similar system like AF's, saved us dry cleaning aswell, husbands suits/blazers just get a quick steam and helps take off odours.

    I must say it took a while to get used to doing the little fiddley bits (kids sleeves etc) but once you get the hang of it it cuts your ironing time in half

    I can't stand wearing clothes that have not been ironed. They just seem so uncomfortable for me
