Anyone who travels for business knows that it is important that you dress you best. Whether it is for a job interview, or a business meeting, your look may be the deciding factor when it comes to landing that position, or making your company proud. Part of this means that you need to make sure your shirts and pants are neat and pressed, which can be hard when you are on the road. Clothes get wrinkled in suitcases, and even when they are hanging up, you still want clean, crisp lines. While some may take their clothes to the nearest dry cleaners to do this, you can do it in your hotel room with a portable iron.
There are many different brands and styles of products out there, some with steam capabilities, some without. There are cordless irons, as well as regular corded products available. Conair, Hamilton Beach, and Black & Decker are among the top brand names on the market. While you want a good iron, you also don’t want to have to spend too much. Here are a few travel irons that you can buy, which are still within your budget.
The Conair DPP143 Iron has functions and power that make it ideal for both travel and home use. It has a variable steaming feature, so you can either keep the steam on, or just have a burst of steam when needed. It has an anti slip heal, and a stainless steel sole plate, has 800 watts of power, and comes with a comes with a one year warranty. This is a corded unit, and the price for this product ranges from $17 to around $30, depending on the retailer.
Another product is the Black & Decker Travel Pro X50. This corded iron is lightweight, yet powerful, and not only has an adjustable steam feature, but also includes a mist sprayer as well. The handle folds flat, and it comes with a convenient carry bag with a string closure. This product sells for around $20 through many outlets.
The cordless CEM Global CE23151 travel iron has a lot of different features, including adjustable steam controls, and the stainless steel plate helps to reduce drag. Even though it is cordless, it still delivers 800 watts of power, making it one of the most powerful cordless models available. It is available for less than twenty dollars.
This is just a sample of the products available. You can buy these or any of the other products offered from local retailers, or even online. Buying online allows you to review different products, and compare prices over several brands. One of the things you need to be on the look out for is a warranty.
Always check to see if a product features a warranty, and even if the price is a little higher than for one without a warrant, it is well worth it. The other thing you have to check is shipping costs on the products, and any returns policies the company offers. Some retail stores which also have online store fronts, can ship from site to store for free, and this can save you anywhere from $5-$10 on shipping alone.
