If you want to avoid the expense (and chemicals) of dry-cleaning your clothing, consider investing in a handheld portable steamer to use at home. Using just the power of regular tap water, hot steam helps blast away wrinkles. But it also does much more. The steam is hot enough to eradicate odor-causing germs, so it helps freshen up things like sweaters and coats. You can also use it to freshen throw pillows, blankets, sofa cushions and even carpet. The key is to blast steam slowly over the item to fully saturate the fibers.
