Small but mighty! I absolutely love the size of this steamer, some (aka me) would say it’s kinda cute. It truly is the perfect size steamer for any kind of travelling – near or far. It’s foldable so there’s no need to worry about it being too bulky and taking over precious space – whether that be in your luggage or storage room. Bonus: It comes with a travel pouch for easy storage and to grab-and-go. This steamer is also very lightweight – not just to carry around but to hold while steaming garments – nobody wants tired arms afterwards.
In terms of the steamer itself, it very easy to use. It comes with a 60ml beaker that you use to fill untreated tap water and pour (a maximum of 120ml – 2 beakers of 60ml) into the water tank. It also comes with a fabric brush which opens the weaves of the fabrics for better steam protection – should you want to attach before using.
Once the appliance is plugged in, press the power button and it will start flashing, when it stops flashing (about 15 seconds), it’s ready to use. Press the steam button to begin steaming; I like to start by passing the steam jets over the hanged garment from top to bottom – it doesn’t take long for the creases and wrinkles on the garment to smoothen itself out.
To turn off the steamer, all you have to do is hold the power button for 3 seconds and then unplug the appliance. Allow the appliance to cool down for an hour and empty the water tank completely.
Overall, this is a wonderful steamer that can be used for the home (clothing, furniture, curtains, etc.) as well as to travel. It doesn’t take up too much space and it’s light enough to hold and carry around.

JANUARY 2022 UPDATE: I am all about full transparency and honesty when it comes to my blog and my reviews. With that said, after using this product only a handful of times after this review, it has completely stopped working. As convenient and travel friendly this product was, after seeing other reviews with the same issue, I highly suggest NOT to purchase this steamer.
