My Little Steamer Go Mini
This find gets the personal stamp of solid-gold approval. After a visiting houseguest brought hers for a weekend, I made the $19.99 investment. The Go Mini steamer heats up in under a minute, uses regular tap-water and travels with its pouch like a dream. Each filling provides 15 minutes of 850-watt steam power. Available in pink and white at Bed, Bath and Beyond locations on Pineville-Matthews Road and South Boulevard. www.bedbathandbeyond.com.
