Remove obvious creases in no time with the new Philips QuickTouch Garment Steamers

August 1, 2011

Sydney, Australia – Philips has introduced two new compact garment steamers (GC526 and GC510) designed to remove obvious creases from your clothes in no time. The home-use garment steamers remove wrinkles from all types of fabric with powerful continuous steam, producing fast results with minimum effort.

 

“Philips is Australia’s leading garment care brand, delivering innovative ironing solutions to suit different lifestyles for over 50 years. The new Philips QuickTouch Garment Steamers make it truly quick for those who are pressed for time and want their outfits to be ready-to-go in an instant,” said Peter Bosscher, Senior Manager Business Development Personal Care & Domestic Appliances for Philips Australia & New Zealand.

 

Garment steamers are widely used in the fashion and entertainment industries where stylists need to keep garments impeccable under high pressure conditions. Intuitively easy to use, now you can touch up garments right on the hanger at the last possible moment whether getting ready for work or a night out.

 

The Philips QuickTouch Garment Steamer (GC526) with steam technology provides continuous steam at up to 35g per minute. With powerful steam blowing through the nozzle, the GC526 removes obvious creases on hanging garments in only a few strokes and is effective on all fabrics including delicate items such as silk, lace or wool. The steam output control feature allows users to set their preferred steam level depending on the garment.

 

The one-litre water tank enables users to steam and de-wrinkle garments for up to 30 minutes without having to refill the tank, saving time and hassle. The GC526 heats up quickly and is ready to use in no time as well as easy to set up with a detachable hanging accessory for hanging your garments while using the steamer. It is also much easier to store and use compared to conventional stand steamers for the home.  

 

The Philips QuickTouch Garment Steamer (GC510) is a handy addition to any home, producing a similarly powerful steam output of 30g per minute. The GC510 provides practicality for busy people who want to look seamless without having the get the iron out and without fear of scorching garments. It can also be used to refresh curtains, upholstery, tablecloths and other home furnishings thanks to the easy maneuverability of the garment steamer compared to conventional irons.
