I am in a pinch and don't have time to run a formal-ish dress I purchased for my brother's wedding celebrations in Chicago this weekend to the dry cleaners. I shy away from the thought of running an iron over this for fear of weird crinkles or stains occurring since the material is silky/sheer. What are your best tips outside of the "shower steam" trick to get this dress looking freshly pressed.
Hand held steamers work great for all kinds of garments and some are compact enough to fit in a suitcase. We have a compact hand held steamer from Homedics that is great for traveling and so much easier than an iron! We got ours at Costco but I’m sure you can find them at Walmart or target. They are pretty inexpensive too.
