URPOWER Garment Steamer Review
With our busy schedules most our housework becomes boring, tiresome and monotonous, but you will agree that ironing being one of it is a nightmare to most of us. Every time you do it you have to get out the iron, prepare your clothes, get the ironing board out and then wait for the iron to heat up. That is just the beginning, the boring, repetitive work comes afterwards.

Design and Functionality
The Urpower looks elegant and simple. The product is mostly white (this is the only color available so far) and, right off the bat, it looks and feels in hand just like you would expect it too. It’s light (weight only 1.2 pounds) and easy to use. The dimensions of the Urpower are 8.8 x 6.2 x 3.7 inches.
The handle feels good and has a good grip. An on/off switch and an indicator are placed above the handle that stands firmly attached to the base and the water tank of the Urpower.
The “neck” of the device slightly bends and on top of it lays the steam outlet. This state of the art steam channeling design is meant to deliver steam powerfully and evenly, which is supposed to help remove the toughest wrinkles from a wide variety of fabrics in clothing, tablecloths, drapery and more.
Overall, the Urpower fabric steamer doesn’t have a unique or eclectic design, but it looks fairly elegant and pretty. Most importantly, it seems really user friendly and practical, perhaps perfect for those who travel often and need a small, yet efficient garment steamer to pack and carry in bags.
This product was designed in a way that it is easy to use, powerful and yet not too heavy to carry around and, most definitely, pretty portable and easy to maneuver.
