Casa Quickie: Steamer-Free and Wrinkle-Free

I'd love to own a garment steamer, but I really don't need another space-hogging appliance lying around the house. While I do actually enjoy ironing, I tend to leave it to the last minute, so it's impractical for my morning routine. Wrinkles aren't practical either, though.
Instead, I hang my clothes from the rod at the end of my shower (far from the faucet), close the bathroom door, and then take my morning shower, letting the steam do all the work. By the time I'm finished, my clothes are wrinkle and odor free! If you don't have a shower rod in your bathroom, you can really hang your duds anywhere in the bathroom. Just make sure you close the door so the steam is contained, and don't allow your clothes to get wet.

I take cool showers so this trick never works for me (I live in Hawaii so outside temperature isn't a concern). I have a compact Conair steamer that works wonderfully. It has a hanger that hangs over a door and holds the steamer handle. To store, the hose and handle wrap around the base and I can slip it under my bed. Best thing about it, it's ready to go in about 5 minutes.
