The best way to give your clothes a professionally pressed look and feel from the comfort of your home. The steam from the iron moistens the fibers of your clothes and makes them easier to press. Not only this, but the steam also helps keep the fibers in place for a longer duration.
Many traditional dry irons contain a steam option. Water is poured into a small reservoir and superheated until it becomes usable steam. A mechanical switch on the handle of the iron allows the user to select the steam setting. The steam itself should come out of small holes located near the tip of the pressing plate.
