Who does not love wearing a crispy, swanky and ironed outfit whenever possible? We all do. Ironically, ironing is arguably one of the most hated chores. The electric iron was introduced in the late 1800s, while its younger cousin the steam iron got introduced in the early 1900s.
Asides a few fabrics such as silk which can become damaged via the steam iron, this iron represents an upgrade in ironing technology as it offers increased speed and ease when compared to the traditional dry iron. Most recent designs incorporate both features for users seeking to have both the steam and dry iron functionality present.
