First, let me say that I'm a big guy.  Keeping clothes sharp and pressed is a very difficult challenge for me.   I'm over 6'4" and if I don't stop eating, I will be 6'4" wide.   WHNT News 19 News Anchor, and legend, Jerry Hayes can do live shots in a hundred degree heat and return to the newsroom with no wrinkles and a crease on his pants sharp enough to cut a roast.

I, on the other hand, after wearing a suit for 20 minutes, can sometimes look like I not only slept in my clothes, but swam in them.

I got an email from a viewer asking about the My Little Steamer.   It's just that. It's a mini-steamer.    It comes with an eight-foot-power cord and uses just normal tap water so that means it's good for the environment.   It cost $19.99.  You can buy it at many of the "home" stores in our area.

I got a dress shirt and a pair of shorts that were seriously wrinkled. In fact, in anticipation of testing the My Little Steamer, I put them in a discount store plastic bag and threw it in the corner for a week.

But the My Little Steamer worked like a champ.  It took all the wrinkles out easily. It would make a great travel steamer.  The only problem is that it does not hold a large amount of water. But if you have to refill, the My Little Steamer takes only two minutes to produce steam.

  Since you are dealing with steam, there are some serious safety considerations.  It's easy to use, but there are some things that you need to read that are safety-related in the directions.  It may be a mini-steamer but it can still hurt you if you use it wrong.

We made the My Little Steamer a "Deal!"
