Best Steam Iron | T3 Magazine

The Best Steam Iron

This portable hand steamer is perfect for the travelling business bod, or indeed anyone who has ever tried to borrow an iron at a hotel.

We’re HUGE fans of T3 magazine in our office. It’s a bit blokey, but hey! We can be blokey too! It’s not all about steaming flowery blouses (but it is a lot about that, we love steaming flowery blouses).

ANYWAYS, T3 has done a huge article on the best irons of 2019, and our f10 handheld clothes steamer has made the cut!

Best Steam Iron

The Best Steam Irons You Can Buy

 

This portable hand steamer is perfect for the travelling business bod, or indeed anyone who has ever tried to borrow an iron at a hotel. You know the scenario. Either another guest has already nabbed the only iron in existence or the iron they’re able to loan you resembles something your great-grandma might have used. And then there’s the hassle of trying to fit the ironing board in the tiny space between the end of the bed and the obligatory writing desk that no one ever uses.

 

Frankly, I never expected this product to make much impression on my heavily creased, hand-held T-shirt but blow me down with a feather if it didn’t remove all the creases without the hot metal plate even touching the fabric. It did so very quickly, too, and without producing any significant amounts of steam; certainly nothing like the geyser-like blast of your average bog standard iron.

 

The lightweight Fridja takes about 45 seconds to warm up and is capable of providing up to 14 minutes of continuous steaming. The whole system is comprised of a hand unit, a 260ml water tank, a flat plastic collar stiffener, a collapsible clothes hanger, a soft fabric guard for delicates and a nice velvet pouch to put it all in. In a stroke of minor genius, it also comes with a space-saving adaptor that allows you to use any standard plastic drinks bottle instead of the main water tank.

Best handheld steamer for clothes | Evening Standard

best handheld clothes steamer

 

Best handheld steamer for clothes. Best handheld steamer for clothes. The best handheld steamer for clothes! Let that just sink in (you and the SEO).

I was innocently browsing the internet, googling Fridja, and low and behold I found this article, from six months ago. Oops. “Forget ironing – these days, it’s all about the clothes steamer”.

The Evening Standard ran a piece highlighting the best handheld steamer for clothes, and our humble f10 handheld clothes steamer, has seemed to have come top bill! It’s even earned itself a pretty stamp, check it out!

 

Best handheld steamer for clothes

 

They’ve said:

If aesthetics are important to you it doesn’t get much cuter than the Fridja F10, which comes in black, white or pink. Taking only 45 seconds to heat up, it makes quick work of crumpled clothing – especially as the steam jet can be held down continuously for up to 14 minutes.

The handle is slim and the model is light, making it easy to manoeuvre around garments and the chord stretches to almost two metres, which is great if your plug points are in awkward places. Add-ons such as the delicate fabric guard and collar press come in handy whilst the anti-calcium water tank gave us assurance that the product will is durable. Though one of the pricier products on the list, all these factors add up to make it a favourite.

 

Best handheld steamer for clothes

Here our wonderful super babe is sporting a Gigi (pink), but the f10 is available in Erin (white) and Raf (black).

They also had some really good tips for when using a clothes steamer:

Pro tips for a wrinkle-free wardrobe

 

1. After you have allowed your steamer to fully heat up, test it on a kitchen towel first to prevent any water sputtering all over your clothes. And always steam in a vertical position!

2. Be aware of the type of fabric you are working with. Silk should be steamed from the reverse side to avoid water streaks and velvet should never touch the face of the steamer.

3. Use distilled/deionized water to fill your clothes steamer. Hard water minerals found in tap water such as calcium and magnesium can clog clothes steamers and decrease their overall effectiveness. Distilled water is readily available from most grocery stores and costs about £1 for 2.5L.

4. Clean your clothes steamer with white distilled vinegar. Fill the tank with the vinegar (white distilled only), allow to heat completely then push all the steam out into your kitchen or bathroom sink. Repeat with distilled water to remove any trace of the vinegar and voilà, a good as new clothes steamer.

 

Thank you so much Evening Standard! What an amazing article – you can read it here.

Best Christmas Present Was A Fridja F10 | Vogue

I really thought Christmas was over. Turkey, crackers, jumper, over. Then Vogue Edit goes and gives us the best present ever.

Ellie Pithers, Fashion Features Editor (who we’ve all suspected in the Fridja office to be an actual genius), writes in the Vogue Edit her choice to buy, browse and crow over. A cool collab to check out here, some amazing interiors here, and our very own Fridja f10 handheld clothes steamer.

In the article on Vogue.co.uk, she writes:

Start your year crease-free, people! My best Christmas present was a Fridja F10 hand-held steamer. All my housemates are queuing up for access. Brides-to-be suddenly want me in their bridal suites for last-minute wrinkle management. At only 900g, it’s small enough to fit into a handbag, so I know my colleagues will be knocking on the hotel door come shows in February. It’s bringing me more joy than I ever thought was possible from an inanimate object without a Prada label.

 

The Vogue Edit

 

Thanks Vogue! Very kind of you, especially at the end of the first week of January. The week that everyone feels fat, broke and cold. You’ve warmed our hearts.

Two Awards Fridja Clothes Steamers | Ideal Home Magazine

Best clothing steamers – refresh clothes the easy way

Any mention by Ideal Home Magazine makes us happy, but they’ve awarded us two awards!! Very exciting. Oscar moment imminent.

Ideal Home Magazine is a beautiful British institute! Published since 1920, the Ideal Home Magazine focuses on home interior decoration articles; reader homes; high-street shopping news and consumer advice. And they’ve reviewed our steamers!

Step backstage at a catwalk show and you’ll see more clothing steamers than hair straighteners. They’re invaluable for refreshing and de-creasing all manner of garments, quickly and easily.

Fridja f10 – best handheld workhorse clothing steamer

Ideal Home Magazine has awarded us the highest marks for our f10 handheld clothes steamer, a whopping 4.5 out of 5. That’s 90%!

Definitely the best for handheld power, you could blitz a pile of garments with the Fridja where other handhelds are designed more for just refreshing one or two items.

Head straight to our shop to get one with free next day delivery here!

Fridja f1000 clothes steamer – best compact vertical steamer

Ideal Home Magazine were also lovely enough to award us the best compact vertical steamer award!

Cute and available in bright colours, this is the smallest vertical steamer on test. It takes up the space of a small cylinder vacuum cleaner, and looks like one too. It’s quick to assemble and the pole is telescopic, so it shrinks down small. The fold-up clothes hanger attaches to the front of the pole and a hook attaches to the back, to hold the steam head when not in use.

Metro | The Lust List

The Metro is a HUGE deal in London with 1.5 million readers a day! So when they talk about new tech that they want in the lust list, we listen.

 

Metro | The Lust List

 

Today, Fridja 19th January 2018, saw Lucy Hedges’ brilliant lust list featuring our gorgeous pink f10! It seems she doesn’t share my obsession with both steamers and extension cables (seriously, who doesn’t love excessive plug sockets?) Nevertheless our f10 handheld clothes steamer stands out on the page.

 

A steamer sounds about as exciting as an extension cable but if ironing is as tedious for you as it is for us, this nifty crease and crinkle eliminator helps you live the household-chore dream. £99.99, fridja.com

 

An amazing mention from a giant of the press, thanks Lucy and everyone who worked on The Lust List. See the article in full high resolution glory here
