Burning costumes or your favourite clothing. How many of you can relate to my heartache? Lol.
Can you imagine how many times i have accidentally burnt my own costumes just trying to get it wrinkle free just before an event.
That was one of the reasons why i actually bought myself a huge ass garment steamer but one thing about those steamers with a hose is that they do not iron out linen, cotton and other stubborn materials all too well. Only works best for softer materials such as Chiffon, organza, satin or silk.
I grew up with most of my white shirt school uniforms having this LOL.
So i am back to using the old manual heavy steel iron for my thicker clothings -_- oh joy.
But that doesn't make ironing any easier as well, because whenever i start with a low- medium settings + water spray, it isn't hot enough to straighten out those wrinkles and it leaves your clothes super damp.
And when i go higher, it always end up with a YELLOW-ish brown patch WTF. Worst case if it's a synthetic material, it will end up burning a hole through & stiffening. Ironing is such a nightmare, if you ask me.
Thank goodness for the current tech generation that keeps on eventing new stuff to solve our old problems and this time i feel so blessed to finally own a super smart Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron that actually doesn't burn clothing despite me accidentally leaving my iron on my clothing for more than 5 minutes (please don't try this at home with any old irons, you might end up causing a fire lol).
With their inbuilt feature that detects inactivity (approx around 2-3 mins) will cause the PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron to automatically turn off to prevent any Fire Hazard.
You all know how much of a scatter brain person i can be when it comes to doing stuff, easily distracted & forgetful. Explains the exploding burnt boiled eggs on the stove. Lol Wtf.
Honestly i was VERY sceptical about new products in the market making such exaggerated claims like this one states "Burn Marks No More".
Growing up with so many bad experiences with Irons, obviously my reaction would be "YA MEH? Sure bo?"
So when i first got my hands on it to give it a try, might just say i am totally blown away with it's functions, designs & "brain"<-- Its way smarter than me wei oTL
Tested this iron on various kinds of materials i could find at home, whether it's 100% natural, synthetic or a mixture but seems that this Iron is smart enough to detect a suitable heat for each material.
Above: Normal Iron, leaving yellow-ish marks & still slightly wrinkled.
Below: Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron, no burnt marks & wrinkle free.
Giving it enough heat supply to straighten out the wrinkles and not burning it in the process, makes me really wonder how does this amazing computerized Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron does it.
And after studying trough, it is revealed on how the process works by Philips creating an Optimal Temp Technology that removes the function of separating your clothes according to fabric type and to adjust the temperature and setting according to fabric type to make ironing much easier.
I agree with the fact that NO ONE in the right mind would say they love ironing, as it is time consuming & tiring, having to stand there for more than an hour struggling to get the wrinkles off your shirts.
Watch the video i made to summarize my experiment with Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron below and please do cry on my behalf as i sacrificed one of my costumes for this Iron experiment. Lemme go hide in a corner & cry now *sobs*.
If you are interested to upgrade your household iron or looking for a great Mother's Day gift, Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron would be something your mom/ wife would appreciate more than a bouquet of roses lol ;-)The Philips PerfectCare Azur range is available at major electrical and departmental stores and www.blipmy.com at a recommended price range of RM459-RM599 (before GST).
