As of today, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to everyone, and that means shopping ’til you drop on beauty, home and clothing items through August 8. So we were surprised to find out that one of the trendiest items on sale is the Steamery Cirrus No. 2 Steamer. Yep, a clothing steamer—it might sound boring, but here’s why you shouldn’t sleep on this deal.
Like a clothing iron, a clothes steamer is handy for removing wrinkles from dresses, dress shirts, drapes and everything in between. But unlike an iron, it doesn’t require an accompanying ironing board to use, and in the case of the Cirrus No. 2, the handheld design makes it portable and practically foolproof to use.
Another benefit of the steamer? Instead of pressing down on your garment’s fibers, the hot steam lifts the fibers, making them swell and regain their original shape. That makes it suitable for a wider range of fabrics, like cotton, wool and silk. It’ll also remove odors and surface dirt, and kill bacteria in the process. Basically, you can make your clothing look and feel like new with the wave of a wand—er, steamer.
Plus, the Cirrus No. 2 weighs less than two pounds and is compact enough to stash in a suitcase for that wedding you have in a month. (Its sleek design is thanks to Steamery’s Swedish roots.) To really upgrade your new appliance, you can add the brand’s Laundry Essentials Detergent & Dryer Ball Kit—it includes three gentle detergents and a trio of dryer balls to keep your clothes looking brand-new.
How’s that for an appliance that makes you want to do laundry?
