What should you look for in a travel handheld garment steamer?
It seems simple, but when you look at some of the handheld clothing steamer designs, it makes you wonder if they’re actually designed for portability. Your travel steamer needs to fit into your suitcase, backpack, or carry-on with room for all your other essentials. Fortunately, most of the popular travel steamers are well-designed to take up as little space as possible in your travel bags.
One of the problems with a travel handheld clothes steamer, when compared to full-sized steamer, is a lack of power. An ineffective clothing steamer with a weak steam flow is just frustrating and you might as well leave it at home. More power means a more powerful steam flow and a faster time to steam.
A handheld steamer for clothes is compact and lightweight to carry with you, but that leaves little room in the design for heating elements that produce the power you need. If you go too small, you may be disappointed in the performance of your travel steamer.
The water reservoir on a travel steamer holds the fuel that produces the steam you need to remove wrinkles. A larger reservoir will deliver continuous steam longer so you can remove more wrinkles. A larger reservoir adds weight, bulk, and because you have to hold it in your hand, possibly more awkwardness. A larger portable fabric steamer will also take up more space in your suitcase.
