REVIEW: The New Black + Decker Handheld Steamer Is What Every Fashion Girl Should Have In Her Closet

September 29, 2017 by Justine Schwartz
shefinds | Homepage

If you feel like you never have anything cute to wear, fall is a good time to give your closet a refresh. It’s dubbed the “January of fashion” for a reason–fall is when all the trends are refreshed in stores, so you can over-haul your entire wardrobe (well, depending how much money you have to spend).

But what if I told you that the one thing every fashion girl owns that you don’t isn’t a pair of Gucci slides or a Supreme tee–but actually a clothes steamer? You know that girl in your office who always looks put-together? She owns one of these and uses it every morning to get her clothes completely wrinkle-free and so they hang just right. And with all that time she spends not ironing, she masters the perfect winged eyeliner. Yes, I know–I hate her, too.

My morning routine was nothing like that, so when I recently got my hands on Black + Decker’s new Advanced Handheld Steamer I was pumped. (Full disclosure, I received a sample to review it.) I had always wanted a steamer and believed that it was something I needed to own, first as a fashion editor and then as a fashion editor with a toddler at home. My window of time to get dressed in the morning was rapidly shrinking, and the iron wasn’t cutting it.

The Steamer arrived in a box roughly the size of a blender, which I opened gleefully the night I was set to test it. I filled the water tank and placed it on my desk, alongside a silk blouse that I pulled out from the wayyyy back of my closet that was in really rough shape. The next morning, my alarm went off as usual and after showering I plugged the steamer on and starting going at it. Holding the steamer sort of feels like a shake weight with larger ends. It’s very light, especially for the first few minutes, but if you don’t workout (like me) you might find that the steamer becomes heavier the longer you use it.

I waited until the steam came out of the head, and then started working from the bottom torso up, and then through the arms. I pulled the fabric taut and moved the steamer in large strokes right up against the blouse. I kept the shirt on the hanger throughout. I used to be a shop girl, so I know that steaming can be really effective when you do it from the inside of the garment.

The result: there were only a few water drops on the top, but it was completely wrinkle free and the whole thing took less than 5 minutes. My husband even convinced me to do his work shirt while I was at it because I made it look so easy. (Men!) I would definitely recommend investing in a handheld steamer, and I can say with absolute certainty that the Black+Decker one works great. It retails for $40 at Walmart.
