Dresses in delicate fabrics can wrinkle easily. There are also pleats, puffed sleeves and sequins or beads to deal with – not that much fun with an iron. Luckily, it’s really easy to learn how to steam a dress. You just leave it on the hanger and steam it vertically – no ironing board required. This also means it’s easier to steam dresses with long skirts as you don’t have to wrestle with them on a board.
