I was tired of spending way too much time ironing or paying my housekeeper to spend hours ironing pillowcases, etc. when there is so much more to do. I decided to try a steam press and purchased a Singer product on Amazon for $199.00. I used it for the first time - WOW! cut my ironing time by at least half, probably more and does a much better job than ironing. And for those that use starch, you can use it with the steam press as well. You only have to press one side and both sides come out great for things like pillowcases.
This is the best purchase I have made in the 5 years of hosting and owning vacation rental properties. The only other one that comes close are the heated toilet seats that my guests rave about - who knew those would be so appreciated! Those heated toilet seats get me some great reviews - especially when you live in a very cold climate.
I don’t usually post due to lack of time between working full time and having a couple of properties, but I felt for those that iron, if you haven’t tried a steam press - it is simply wonderful and will pay itself back in no time.
