Instructions for a steam buddy

Updated April 17, 2017

The Steam Buddy appliance helps eliminate the cost of dry-cleaning bills and saves you time and hassle. It works similarly to a standard clothes iron, and it's often used as an alternative to remove odours and wrinkles from clothing, curtains, bedding, tablecloths and on other fabrics. The Steam Buddy features a built-in on-demand steamer which takes only a matter of seconds to start up, and you can use the Steam Buddy to remove wrinkles and refresh fabrics by following a few simple steps.

Open the water compartment, located on the top of the device. Pour water into the water compartment to fill it up. Close the water compartment.

Plug the Steam Buddy in and press the power button, located on the head of the steamer.

Hang the piece of clothing or other item to prepare it for steaming. You can also lay the item on an ironing board or other flat surface, but hanging the item puts it in the best position for steaming, as you can reach the entirety of the fabric and your hands are left free to hold the Steam Buddy.

Point the bottom of the steamer to the desired area of fabric, holding the device directly above the item, and push the large button on the handle to spray out controlled bursts of steam. You can now move the Steam Buddy around on any fabric to remove wrinkles and odours.

Repeat the steaming as many times as needed, until the fabric is deodorised and free of wrinkles. Thicker fabrics such as cotton and denim are stubborn and typically require more steaming to remove wrinkles and odours.
