Rowenta Perfect Iron DX9300Dry cleaning your shirts is the equivalent to driving a rental car. Harsh, at best. Stop taking your shirts in for cleaning after one-wear and follow these three simple steps:

  1. Gentle wash and dry
  2. A good iron
  3. Quality wood hangers

The Rowenta Perfect Iron uses powerful bursts of steam to penetrate the fabric for pressing ease and the platinum soleplate glides easily over your shirts. The anti-calcium construction will add life to your iron and avoid that disgusting build up you see on your old $10 iron.

What this means to you: Ever wonder why that $100 shirt only lasted you a year? It’s because those dry cleaners subject it to the full gamut of chemicals and pressing. Ignore the dry-cleaning only instructions and do it yourself. Remember, you can’t get full coverage insurance on your shirts.

Cost: $95 @ iKitchen
