clothes steamer instead of iron?

hello.. is a clothes steamer a wise choice for minimizing the amount of time needed to iron dress shirts, pants, etc?

3 months of not having to iron has made me not want to go back to ironing. to time consuming to layout the fabric, etc.

Bought my valet rowenta years ago when I started wearing suits everyday. Never went back to ironing.
But be sure if u get a decent steaming u use distilled water or after a few years your steamer wont work properly and u will need to run vinegar through it which sucks lol

If you have hard water, yes. If you have softer water, there's no real need to use distilled water.

I've had this Rowenta for 10 years and would never go back to ironing. It takes so much less time than ironing, and does just as good of a job.

Interesting. Didn't even look at the reviews. It was bought for me as a gift about 10 years ago, and I haven't had any issues with it.

Aside from the steamer. I like to keep Downey Wrinkle Release in the car. When driving around from meetings, it comes in handy if you got a long drive and your clothes get wrinkled between. Also handy on vacations
