Life’s Good When Your Clothing is Steamed!
Staying neat and pressed (and on task!) with the new LG Styler
Time is something that I desperately wish I had more of. There really aren’t enough hours in the day to accomplish all that I’d like to, or to put it more accurately, all that I have to. I love keeping busy, but I often overload my schedule to the point where I begin to neglect some basic tasks.
Sometimes taking my own advice doesn’t even work.
When there are things that need to be done, they need to get done. Often this is at the expense of cooking a proper meal or bringing the boxes that have been piling up near the front door down to the recycling bin, unloading the dryer or taking my suits or blazers to the dry cleaners. I’m human, after all, and there’s only so much I’m capable of.
Keeping my clothes clean and pressed, however, is important to me. And not just for the sake of the site and our content!
Being neat and put-together is a key component of my personal style – and living space, as you can see – and if I don’t have that kind of order in my life, I tend to get very stressed out.
So I was more than excited to have the opportunity to integrate the LG Styler into my routine.
Steaming my clothing is something I’ve done for many years. I actually prefer it to ironing. And while steaming a garment manually doesn’t take a ton of time, it does, nonetheless, take time. Plus, with a manual steamer, I’m only able to do one piece at time.
And when time is at a premium, which it usually is in our household, I often don’t have even 15 minutes to spare to get my suit and shirt ready before heading out to dinner or an event.
I love the LG Styler because it allows me to multitask and can even work quietly overnight if I’ve got an early morning ahead of me with only minutes to shower and make an espresso but still need to have my clothes ready to go. Let’s talk about some of the best features.
TrueSteam™ Technology. With a simple touch of a button, hot steam is employed to gently sanitize your clothing. This technology works to refresh and remove both wrinkles and odors from clothing as well.
Odor Removal. The LG Styler uses steam and aroma sheets to help remove unpleasant odors left behind by smoke, food and perspiration. It’s important to note that I personally don’t care for scents when it comes to detergent or dryer sheets, but I find the light scent from the Styler to be very pleasant. It smells crisp and clean and is anything but overpowering.
Quick Refresh. This is the feature I use most often. It makes my clothing look, feel and smell fresh quickly. You can set it for a couple of different duration, but the shortest cycle (20 minutes) is often enough for me. During the cycle, Moving Hanger Action gently shakes your clothes after they have been steamed and de-wrinkles them.
Easy Pants Crease Care. All I can say about this feature is that it is absolutely amazing. I’d even go so far as to call it life-changing. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t set my expectations too high when trying it for the first time, but wow.
I find ironing my pants to be a laborious process and I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve double-creased them. And while a manual steamer is great, it doesn’t allow you to produce a crisp crease.
The LG Styler includes a special compartment in the door that helps restore the crease while reducing wrinkles at the knee, waist and everywhere else your pants can wrinkle. In this respect, the LG Styler is one of the best clothing care appliances I’ve ever used.
Drying. A built-in heat-pump system generates warm air and maintains it at a low temperature to keep clothing from shrinking or being damaged while drying. I air dry my dress shirts and pants all the time. And since I often do my laundry right before going to bed, they’re not dry in the morning.
I’ve gotten into the habit of putting dress shirts – the LG Styler will fit up to three of them at once – in before going to bed so they’re dry, steamed and wrinkle-free for me in the morning.
Beyond all of its features, the LG Styler is just an all-around great looking machine. It integrates seamlessly into our bedroom though once we make the permanent move to our office, it’s going to be built in to our walk-in styling closet.
