The Laurastar Lift Xtra Aluminum can be used as an iron and a clothes steamer. This steam generator can iron different types of fabrics in a row, because the temperature adjusts automatically. That means you'll get through that pile of laundry more quickly. Before you leave the house, freshen up that jacket, because the steam generator will be at the right temperature in 3 minutes. You can also use the clothes steamer vertically to freshen up the curtains, for example. It comes with a separate soleplate for delicate fabrics, so your satin dress will keep looking good. After use, the power cord rolls up automatically, and you can neatly put this compact, light steam generator back in the closet.
