Smoothing with Steam Buddy -

Steam Buddy: Does it Work?

If you are planning your next getaway, this "Does It Work?" product will have you arriving to your destination wrinkle-free. Or will it?

Our first impression was that the Steam Buddy feels nice and solid, and you get a couple of attachments.

A measuring cup comes included. Tap water is acceptable. The Steam Buddy is easy enough to fill up.

Plug it in, and seconds later, it starts heating up - even before we pushed any buttons.

We started with the most wrinkled item we had, a child's shirt that looks like it came out of the dryer and then was hung up. It is 70% silk and then something else.

The directions warn against pushing the button too fast. Nothing major, just a little water, and of course, we have to see how fast too fast is. In about a minute we have a definite difference.

We popped on the fabric brush attachment, though we're not sure what it's for. It feels like a lint brush, but we tried it on an all cotton shirt.

In my haste pushing the button, I made a few water spots. But the final product left little doubt. The Steam Buddy made a difference.

Finally, we took on some ladies' pants with some pretty heavy wrinkles.

Most of the big wrinkles dropped out almost immediately. A few were tougher. But in the end, we were impressed.

Then, we broke out the creasing tool. It clips on just like the fabric brush. Just put the pants in its grip and slide on down.

Very, very impressive, and probably the best reason to buy the Steam Buddy over any other. Worked great on shirts, too.

Does it work? We give the Steam Buddy a 'yes.'

We picked up the Steam Buddy for $20. It's available both online and at stores like Walgreens.
