I don’t know about you but I just love my work. The job that I do enables me to work and travel at the same time. I go to different places and enjoy the scenery during off days. I also sometimes let my family join me in some of my work-related travels. When the family goes with me, it’s even more fun! I really love my work! But you know what I don’t like? Looking for the best travel steamer in the morning before I go to work. Sometimes, hotels don’t provide the best steamers and I end up going to the my meetings with wrinkled clothes.
PurSteam Fabric Steamer
Let us start this list by defining what a clothes steamer is. It is a device used in the home or while on travel to remove wrinkles from clothes by means of steam coming out from the device. The rate at which steam is generated, the ability to iron clothes and remove unwanted folds and wrinkles depends upon the capability of individual steamers. Travel steamers are not created equal, unfortunately.
At the top of our list of Best Travel Steamers is the PurSteam Fabric Steamer. Let’s talk first about what keeps it functioning. The material that transforms water into steam is the aluminum ball which is the heating element of the device. Not only is the heating element the best among its competitors, but the PurSteam Travel Steamer also delivers steam more strongly and evenly compared to other steamers. This creates flat and well-steamed clothes. It is also BPA free, which means it is safe to use because it does not have unwanted chemicals that may transfer to you or your clothes. Since it is relatively small, this travel steamer is amazingly light and portable. You can use this travel steamer for different kinds of fabrics and garment like satin, nylon, cotton, wool, linen, sequins, bead and embroidery.
Pure Enrichment PureSteam Fabric Steamer
The second travel steamer that we have is the Pure Enrichment PureSteam Fabric Steamer. What’s noticeable in this steamer is its nozzle. The new design is purposely created to give a more generalized steam with pressure. You may not notice the difference if compared to other travel steamers but it is really more powerful than those other steamers in the market. It also heats up quickly. You can start steaming your clothes after just two minutes. What’s great with this travel steamer is its portability and fast operation. You can use this steamer in most fabrics and drapery in your house and outside.
You may be asking if the travel steamer is good only when you are going out of the house. But really, you can still use it while inside the house! You can use it normally when removing wrinkles from your clothes, furniture upholstery, beddings and linens.
A full water capacity of this travel steamer tank can do ten straight minutes of steamer use. Therefore, you have ample time to steam all your clothes in such a short time! For its specification, the steamer measures 7 inches length by four inches wide including the handle. Based on a lot of reviews, this steamer really gets the job done!
Urpower Garment Steamer
The next great product that you can use for steaming is the Urpower Garment Steamer. It is a highly portable travel steamer that you can carry around almost anywhere. You need a travel steamer for each day that you will use clothes, which is everyday!
Safety is everything, right? What I like most about this travel steamer is its automatic shut-off function. It means that the steamer will automatically switch itself off if the temperature inside gets too hot or if the water that is turned to steam reaches a low level. How awesome is that?! I hope all other companies that create travel steamers be required to implement safety protection on their products. In that way, the world will be a safe place! At least in the steaming clothes and fabrics area! The volume of the water tank for this travel steamer is 130 milliliters. Like most steamers, it can reach up to 10 minutes of operation for every full tank of water. The weight of this travel steamer is 1.2 pounds.
Ebest Mini Travel Portable Garment Steamer
What’s the best travel steamer that has great electronics? It’s the E-best travel steamer! Get it? E for electronics and best for the brand name “best”. Do you get it now? Funny, right? Well, never mind.
From the E-Best brand comes the Mini Travel Portable Garment Steamer. This steamer has a unique nozzle because it has a sort of circular type of steam exhaust. It looks a lot more like a thermos. The water tank contains 110 milliliters of water. You can steam fabrics up to 10 minutes for every full water tank. If you are worried that this steamer might be a little heavy for you, think again. It is relatively lightweight and its design is very compact. The product is 8 inches long. The weight of this product is a little over 2 pounds. It works on a 600-watt power and on a 110 to 120 V only. So if you like travelling a lot to other countries, be careful. You might accidentally plug this travel steamer on a 220 V socket.
You can use this travel steamer to iron out any type of fabric which include, but not limited to, cotton, wool, denim, upholstery and curtains. Do you have cargo pants? This travel steamer works great on these types of clothing.
A great feature of this product is that it has an automatic shut-off switch just in case the water level of the steamer is on a critical low level or if the unit becomes too hot.
Gideon Handheld Portable Fabric Steamer
Next up on our list is the Portable Fabric Steamer from Gideon. The assembly of this portable steamer is composed of a handle for easy maneuvering and an oval nozzle where the steam goes out. The nozzle is purposely made at an angle for easy steaming and ironing. On the side of the travel steamer is an indicator of the water level. The height of this product is 8 inches and the handle fits perfectly on the hand. It is very portable and compact. All the components of this steamer are simple and straight to the point. They all go together to create this amazing device!
The Gideon Fabric Travel Steamer is a very powerful device that creates steam from water to remove wrinkles from clothes. Aside from the usual clothes that we wear, the travel steamer can also be used to remove wrinkles from curtains, drapes, linens, bedsheets and other fabrics. If you are worrying that there might be some water that will go out from the nozzle, you are very wrong, my friend. Gideon guarantees that this travel steamer is 100% spit-free and drip-free. All you have to worry about is how many clothes and fabrics you have to steam out!
Conair Travel Smart Garment Steamer
This product has slightly different parts as most travel steamers because the main body of the steamer is translucent. It has the same nozzle and handle as any other travel steamer brand, although, I would say that some brands are easier to hold than this steamer. But the ease of holding the handle makes up through portability. The handle is foldable so that you can easily keep it in small spaces when not in use.
You can use this steamer at any angle. A full water storage can last up to 10 minutes of steaming. You also do not need to worry about sockets because an 8 feet cord is included in this product. Gideon also implemented dual voltage on this travel steamer. Why is this important? Because it is indeed a travel steamer, you can use it wherever you go because the voltage output of this device is 110 V to 240 V. For some of you who do not know, other countries implement 220 voltage on their electric outlets. If you plug a 110v to a 220 outlet, your device or appliance will completely be ruined.
In terms of built and construction, I would definitely recommend this product. It may be a little big and heavy than most travel steamers, but it compensates with the power of steam from the nozzle. It definitely removes all wrinkles of fabrics.
SteamGenie Portable Garment Steamer
Second to the last of our list of travel steamers is the SteamGenie Portable Garment Steamer. From what I observed, this travel steamer is very gentle to clothes. I have used this product once and found that you can easily use this on different kinds of fabrics like cotton, nylon and satin. You can even use it on fabrics with beads, sequins and embroidery! Some use it on crocheted fabrics! So for those who are very good with crafts, you can definitely use this product.
As for removing wrinkles, the Steam Genie is a very reliable product. It releases a very powerful stream of steam that eliminates wrinkles and unwanted folds. It is a great device to smoothen fabrics. The product is portable and compact. You can use this steamer wherever you go. You can also use it even at home.

Cotton Mini Steamer may be the right travel steamer for you. You can use this steamer to remove wrinkles from your clothes, your curtains, your carpets, and other upholstery.
What makes this unit different from other steamers is its options offered to the users. What do I mean by that? The user can push 2 buttons when operating this steamer. You can choose option I. The steamer heats the water for 20 seconds and then you can use the steam for up to 10 minutes. You can also choose option II. The heating time for this option is 45 seconds and you can steam fabrics up to 18 minutes.
Travel steamer are created for portability, accessibility, safety and usability. A steamer needs to be portable because you need to carry it comfortably wherever you go. It should be small enough to fit to your luggage or bag. But it should not be so compact as to not even finish removing wrinkles on one article of clothing due to small volume of water storage. Second feature that you should look for in a travel steamer is accessibility. You have your travel steamer. But it should be convenient enough to use. Most travel steamers have long cords that allow you to move comfortably as you steam your clothes. Third is safety. A travel steamer should have a safety protection. Travel steamers need to automatically shut-off just in case its water is on critical low level or if the steamer itself get too hot. You only want to remove the wrinkles. You do not want to remove the whole house!
Fourth is usability. A travel steamer needs to completely remove all the wrinkles of your clothes and other fabrics. Your steamer needs to have a water capacity to produce steam that could be used for at least 5 minutes. The handle must be ergonomic. The spout or nozzle needs to be designed at the right angle so that you can use it with ease. You need to get a travel steamer which is also made from sturdy materials so that you can use it for a long time. A reliable material will also not fail even if used frequently. You would not want to burn your hands as you use your steamer. A travel steamer is needed both inside and outside the house. Get one that will serve you fast and will serve you for the years to come!
