Ironing might be the fastest way to get creases and wrinkles out of your clothes, but it can still be energyand time- consuming, not to mention your garments might not turn out as nicely pressed as you desire. Consider investing in a garment steamer like the Philips ClearTouch Air Garment Steamer GC568/60, which can help you get better ironing results – all in one go – thanks to its state-of-the-art features.
Getting creases out of clothes on a steam iron becomes easier when you turn up the heat, but this might damage the fabric, especially on delicates like silk, satin or brocade. A garment steamer provides an effective solution by steaming clothes without the contact of an iron’s hot plate. The Philips ClearTouch Air Garment Steamer GC568/60 is designed with extra powerful steam conducted through the SmartFlow Gold steam plate that keeps the temperature optimised and safe. There are also three steam levels, including an energy-saving ECO mode, so that you can choose the steam intensity for different garments and fabrics.
Thanks to its AirStretch Technology, the Philips ClearTouch Air Garment Steamer GC568/60 features an innovative air suction that uses adjustable force to gently stretch your garments so that the steam penetrates the fabric even quicker and better. A unique ShoulderFit Hanger with a 3D fabric pad helps provide a better fit for your garment when steaming. Use the Hang&Lock feature to lock the hanger for better stability when steaming, making the task so much easier.
The bonus of steaming your garments is that it also refreshes them, even without the need to wash or dry clean. Steaming helps kill up to 99.9 per cent* of bacteria in the fabric, and if you have pleated outfits to take care of, the Philips ClearTouch Air Garment Steamer GC568/60 comes with a pleat making accessory to help you create perfect pleats. The 1.2 L transparent water tank it’s fitted with has a special hygienic water inlet and comes with an easy rinse anti-calc descaling function for enhanced durability.
* Tested by external body for bacteria types Escherichia coli 8099, Staphylicoccus aureus ATCC 6538, Canidia albicans ATCC 10231with 8 minutes steaming time.
