Are you constantly struggling to get stubborn creases out of your silk shirts or cotton bed sheets? If so, it might be worth looking out for a steam iron in the Cyber Monday sales — but hurry, discounts won’t last much longer.
Many online retailers and department stores, including Amazon, Lakeland and John Lewis, are offering up to 60% off top-name brands including Tefal, Philips and Russell Hobbs.
But with so many offers around it’s easy to miss the best ones, so we’ve rounded them up below.
Steam iron deals
A traditional steam iron comes with a built-in water tank and uses steam to relax the fabric and get rid of creases. The higher the steam output, the more powerful its de-creasing abilities will be.
Prices can start from as little as £10, and we’ve found plenty of top-performers for under £50.
Steam generator deals
Steam generator irons have separate water tanks, so can release more steam at a higher pressure. They’re bigger and bulkier but remove deep creases effectively and iron both sides of the garment at the same time, so you can speed through your laundry pile.
They tend to be more expensive, with the best models ranging between £100 to £300.
Clothes steamer deals
Clothes steamers are ideal for quickly refreshing your garments without the need for an ironing board. They’re suitable for delicate fabrics and can help you give curtains a once-over or get wrinkles out of sheets too.
There are two main types of garment steamer: handheld and upright. Opt for a handheld model if your priorities include small touch-ups and travel, but if you’re looking for a machine that can tackle the bigger jobs, an upright model with a big tank capacity is best.
