  • Are you talking about a garment steamer? I have a garment steamer. I bought it on clearance at Target. It works great! There are certain fabrics that need a couple of steams and some fabrics should be steamed from the inside of the fabric, but I haven't met anything that the steamer can't tackle yet. Additionally, we can use it to freshen our upholstery, mattresses, rugs, carpet, curtains and drapes. I even put a little microfiber bonnet over the nozzle and cleaned my blinds, which isn't in the manual, but I just thought I'd give it a try.

  • I have the Tobi garment steamer and it works quite well. My Dad gave it to me as a holiday gift a couple of years ago, so I can't tell you how much it cost, but I can tell you that I really like it. I steam all of my skirts & tops to get the wrinkles out from hanging them dry. I also use it to freshen our mattresses, sofa and drapes.
