It is also true that IHAN knew it Totally Rocked Big Socks back in May before it made Oprah's O-List. So perhaps Ms. Winfrey's staff need to contact IHAN for the skinny on all the best stuff going ay? :)
Velocity V50. Mr. McSteamy has the Velocity V100 (posted about here) and I use it when I iron the co-workers clothes for school. I will challenge anyone's iron against the V100 every day of the week and I know it will beat every iron out there for continuous steam and it will not leak or leave wet spots on your clothes. I do not own the Velocity V50 but I used it at Spring Quilt Market and I was just as impressed with it as I am the Velocity V100.
Art Grabedian and Kimberly Szucs tolerated Mrs. IHAN while she inspected their wears. Art already knows when he sees me to back away from the merchandise because I don't want them showing me how it works. I want to be the operator so I know for sure that it works and how it works.
I needed something to iron and Art would not take off his shirt so I started to take mine off to iron it (Linen wrinkles very easily) and I saw people starting to run so I quickly changed the game plan and just ironed the bottom of my Linen shirt. Here is the before.....
Velocity V50 had continuous steam the entire time. The other thing I really liked about the V50 is you can bypass the auto shut-off. That is really nice if you are working on projects and you don't want to be annoyed by your iron turning itself off. There were no water marks or drips....just like the V100.
The only other wrinkled item I could remove (yes I have other wrinkles but they don't come off that easily) was my camera strap. It had gotten wrinkled and bunched up in places. So off it came (no one ran this time :)Reliable Corporation and I don't own stock in their company either (that I know of) but when I find something I think is a great investment, I like to tell all my friends.
As with every product, there are things the V50 just does not do well.....after almost 45 minutes I discovered what the Velocity V50 really stinks at doing and I've gone to the trouble of posting my photos as proof.
Velocity V50 really stinks as a belt. I thought the cord did nothing for my waist line and the fob hanging from the cord was just not runway material. Sorry Reliable!!!
Lastly, it makes a really ugly necklace. The iron itself is way to heavy to dangle down even if you are into a huge amount of bling. I have to give it a negative rating in the necklace and scarf categories. Although I was thinking about plugging it back in and seeing if it would remove my crows feet.....but I was afraid to be disappointed.
Art and Kimberly also brought the new EnviroMate Pronto P7 with them to Market. I wanted it so badly I was willing to shoot Art to get it.
The EnviroMate Pronto P7 shot steam for 15 minutes straight....no kidding. And it was not a puff of steam either. I tried several times to take a good photo of the steam but I don't know how to do that and have the steam show up in the photo. I guess I need to take a video camera with me to Houston for Fall Quilt Market. That steam was literally coming out in front of the tip for quite a distance. The EnviroMate Pronto P7 is only available for pre-order at this time. But I have it on good authority it will be available soon!!!
I have purchased a steam cleaner last year only to return it to the store because it sputtered and spurted and did not really steam. I have been interested in Steam Cleaners because they clean and sanitize without using chemicals. With two young co-workers around that is very important to me. Guess what else it will do? Kill bed bugs. I know that is a gross subject to bring up, but I have read recently that bed bugs are not just in beds....they have found them in malls, clothing stores, and other public places. So when I travel, you know what I'll be bringing with me!!!
All I have to say is....."I'll Be Back."
