STEAMING vs IRONING. The Answer to the Debate
A Closer Look into Garment Care: Steaming vs Ironing

Your clothes are an investment. Don't you want to apply the safest, gentlest method for removing wrinkles?



A Closer Look into Garment Care


 


Steaming vs. Ironing


 


Your clothes are an investment. Don’t you want to apply the safest, gentlest method for removing wrinkles?


 


To determine which method of removing wrinkles is the better option for fabric care, steaming and ironing were put to the test.


 


-Two identical 6” x 6” squares of black wool were purchased from a local fabric store.


 


-We steamed sample “A” for 1 minute with a Model J-2000 Jiffy ® Steamer.


 


-Sample “B” was ironed for 1 minute, on the proper heat setting, with a top-of-the-line residential iron.


 


-We then bagged, labeled, and submitted both samples to MVA Scientific Consultants in Norcross, Georgia for detailed magnification.


 


The Scanned Electron Microscope (SEM) images show any damage that may have occurred. These images can be seen on the Steam vs. Iron page of the Jiffy Steamer website or by using this link http://www.jiffysteamer.com/SteamIron/.


 


The fibers in sample “A” are in near perfect condition due to the gentle nature of steam. However, the fibers in sample “B” are clearly distorted—you can easily recognize the damaged fibers caused by just one application of the iron’s hot sole plate.


 


Unlike ironing, steam actually relaxes the fibers rather than crushing them.


 


Now that you have a closer look into garment care, use what the professionals use…a JIFFY ® STEAMER!
