I find the prices of dry cleaning nowadays nothing short of outrageous. I wear a silk roll neck T-shirt every day and if I have a stain down the front, my local dry cleaners in their wisdom charge $7 to clean one. You do the math – it could add up pretty fast. I now have solved that problem with the steam cycle on my new front loading washing machine, but in lieu of that the new Hamilton Beach 11550 Garment Steamer at $74.95 is designed to steam out light stains, take out wrinkles and steam freshen clothing without enriching the coffers of your local dry cleaner and infusing your clothing with chemicals. This garment cleaner is affordable, it works and it saves you money, so look at it as an investment for 2010.
