A Closer Look into Garment Care
Steaming vs. Ironing
Your clothes are an investment. Don't you want to apply the safest, gentlest method for removing wrinkles?
To determine which method of removing wrinkles is the better option for fabric care, steaming and ironing were put to the test.
- Two identical 6" x 6" squares of black wool were purchased from a local fabric store.
- We steamed sample "A" for 1 minute with a Model J-2000 Jiffy ® Steamer.
- Sample "B" was ironed for 1 minute, on the proper heat setting, with a top-of-the-line residential iron.
- We then bagged, labeled, and submitted both samples to MVA Scientific Consultants in Norcross, Georgia for detailed magnification.
The Scanned Electron Microscope (SEM) images show any damage that may have occurred.
|Sample A - Steamed||Sample A - Steamed|
|Sample B - Ironed||Sample B - Ironed|
The fibers in sample "A" are in near perfect condition due to the gentle nature of steam. However, the fibers in sample "B" are clearly distorted. You can easily recognize the damaged fibers caused by just one application of the iron's hot sole plate.
Unlike ironing, steam actually relaxes the fibers rather than crushing them.
Now that you have a closer look into garment care, use what the professionals use…
a JIFFY ® STEAMER!
Steam Kills Dust Mites
Do you or family members suffer from allergies?
A 2003 Environmental Protection Agency report stated that childhood asthma rates are doubling. The EPA report is the agency’s second comprehensive look at the environmental hazards to children’s health. The finding showed the percentage of children getting asthma has doubled in two decades, rising from 3.6 percent in 1980 to 8.7 percent, or 6.3 million children by 2001. The exact cause for the increase is unknown but researchers state a number of factors have been studied. Those range from exposure to dust mites, cockroaches and pesticides to tobacco smoke, ozone and soot. EPA officials are examining the role of indoor air pollutants, such as dust mites, especially since there have been modest improvements since 1990 in lessening exposure to outdoor air pollutants. The reduction of indoor factors will be the key to reversing this trend. 1
Dust Mites are microscopic creatures related to the spider family. They are invisible to the human eye and are about 0.3mm in length. They live on human skin flakes. They are most prevalent in the bedroom where millions can exist in your mattress, boxspring, pillows and comforters. They are also found in upholstered furniture, carpeting and other fabric items. Dust mites produce 20 or more fecal pellets per day, which is the primary allergen to humans. We inhale these allergens while sleeping and during periods when these particles become airborne such as when vacuuming and disturbing the infested fabrics.
It has been proven that dust mites and their allergen Der p1 are a major factor in allergic reactions. A key to controlling allergic reactions is controlling the dust mite population in your home. Lower mite populations lower the amount of mite allergen, Der p1. Other clinical studies have revealed that avoidance of dust mite allergens in early childhood can prevent the onset of asthma in adults. A study as reported in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Allergy tested the feasibility and effectiveness of using a portable, domestic steamer for the control of dust mites, its effects on mite populations and concentration of the allergen Der p1.2
A domestic steamer was used to treat carpet squares that were seeded with a known number of dust mites. The number of live mites was monitored for 4 months and in 8 test squares and 8 control squares. Measurement of mite populations and allergen levels were taken before and after steaming with a domestic steamer.
The results showed two significant findings. No live mites were found in any of the eight steam-treated carpet squares. In contrast, the numbers of live mites extracted from the eight-control squares rose from a mean of 11 on day 3 to 185 four months later. The fact that no live mites were found in any of the eight steam-treated carpet squares at any time during the study shows that steaming is a highly efficient method of killing house dust mites. More significant for allergy sufferers is the measurement of the allergen Der p1. There was no difference in the concentration of Der p1 in dust samples of untreated carpets, but in those which had been steam cleaned there was an average 87% fall in the concentration of Der p1.
The study concluded with:
"Steaming requires nothing more than water and heat and therefore is non-polluting compared with mite eradication methods that require the use of detergents and other chemical agents. Furthermore, the design of domestic steamers, [such as the Jiffy® Steamer], renders it safe for domestic use as long as the operating instructions are followed. In addition, we observed no damage, or shrinkage of the fabric, nor discoloration and the carpet dried within a half-hour of treatment. There is no indication of prolonged retention of residual moisture, as with wet-vacuum cleaning which may promote mite population growth.
Finally, steaming as reported herein is the only method of house dust mite control that combines effective killing of mites and substantial reduction in allergen concentrations within a single system. These factors, taken together, render domestic steamers, [such as the Jiffy® Steamer], especially suitable for the management of dust mites and their allergens in the homes of allergy sufferers."

Penny, you may have to hold the hose up higher in the air to prevent condensation from forming and coming out the steam head. Also make sure the hose coupling at the base is tight and not leaking. I am forwarding your communications to Jiffy for their further recommendations. Thanks. John Douthat, owner and tech.
Hello! Take your hose off and rinse it out just in case something has gotten into your hose. Empty the unit and start again with fresh water. This should help the problem. If you have any further questions, please call one of our technicians at 800-525-4339. Jiffy
The steamer I ordered doesn't put out the amount of steam I expected. I have a drapery workroom and I can't use it on the table because of the water spitting. Is there a steamer that will work horizontally and vertically? I have a Reliable boiler iron and am looking for that kind of steam. Can I return this steamer and get something better? Beverly
Jiffy Steamer is intended to be used upright so the steam can rise out of the hose. The steamer, if used horizontally will spit water out. The Jiffy also provides a continuous soft flow of steam, when being used correctly. Jiffy
I will recommend my friends to check this site before buying everywhere else.
Nancy T, Huntington Woods MI
We purchased our second jiffy steamer from you. The person I ordered it from on the phone was so knowledgeable and helpful. We had a good experience from your company. Thanks
When I was shopping for the best price for the steamer I was referred to your company by Jiffy. I contacted them for specific questions about my circumstances, found they had a price increase and they suggested I check with you for availability. Your company came highly recommended, I was assured I could depend on ordering with you. I was completely satisfied with my experience, thank you for saving me money and getting the steamer to me so quickly. The packaging was superior too, completely protected my merchandise, that is definitely not always the case when making a purchase from other vendors.
All it s ok. Many thank for your business.
I'm very satisfied with your company prompt service and shipment of my steamer. I'm gonna order another one for my sister. Please send her one too when you see the order from me. Thanks guys!!!
The item above is currently back ordered, so this is all the input I can offer at this time. I understand the circumstances for the back order and don't have a problem with the shipping delay. I'm just happy to know that there is an American worker out there putting my steamer together and bringing home a paycheck.
Cheryl Lynne, Maryland
GREAT WEB SITE!! I am so pleased with this company. Great web site, great prices, and excellent customer service. I am telling all of my friends. Keep up the good work!!
Thanks a lot! I am a happy woman!
This is my second purchase with AllBrands.com. When I saw AllBrands.com had clothes steamers I knew my search for where to buy a steamer was done now I needed to find the steamer I wanted to buy. I was able to compare steamers, read reviews, look at prices and make my decision. I love the Jiffy J-4000 - it is HEAVY DUTY, steams lasts forever and the clothes come out fresh! I have recommened the Jiffy J-4000 to my friends and told them when they are ready to buy - buy from AllBrands.com!
Order was processed, shipped and received amazingly fast. My Jiffy steamer is of the highest quality. Your company should be used as a benchmark for others to strive to be like. Thank YOU!
The standard rod set consist of 3 pieces for any Jiffy unit that has the 5.5. ft. length hose. The rod set is the appropriate length for the hose attachment. If an extra section were to be added, it would be too tall for the hose attachment. The rod set it designed to hold the clothing when steaming but also to hold the hose attachment when the unit is not in use. Your customer may purchase the additional section of rod, however, we do not recommend this and it may cause damage to the hose attachment if used.
It is a pleasure to do business with your company. In this world of "short-term operators" where it is all about making money for personal gain, rather than truly delivering quality service toward a long-term, mutually satisfying relationship, we are happy to find a company such as yours that instills trust for doing business with you in the future.
Linda, Augusta, M
I AM EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH MY STEAMER, I LOVE IT AND HAVE 3 PEOPLE THAT ARE GOING TO PURCHASE ONE AFTER I HAVE RAVED ABOUT HOW MUCH FASTER IT IS TO PRESS YOUR CLOTHING, VERSES THE TRADITIONAL IRONING BOARD. YOUR SERVICE WAS, OUTSTANDING. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS, IS THE CUSTOMER SERVICE. THE PRODUCT IS IMPORTANT, BUT YOU DON'T MIND A PROBLEM IF YOU HAVE A REPUTABLE COMPANY STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT AND RESOLVE ANY PROBLEMS THAT MIGHT ARISE. THANK YOU AND I'LL KEEP SPREADING THE WORD ABOUT ALLBRANDS.COM PRODUCTS AND SERVICE.

My husband bought me the Jiffy steamer 4000 for a Christmas present. I could not wait to try this item. Within 4 days the package was at my door and the Jiffy steamer is incredible. I love this machine!!!. I gave my iron and ironing board to charity already. I would order from your company without batting an eye. Service was great and product excellent.

Your site had the price out of all the other websites. I order lots of stuff online and I got this very fast for an online order. Those are the main factors considered when I buy online. I personally am bigger on emailing customer support as opposed to calling. Thanks!

Please note that this is our commercial model…it takes 15 minutes to reach PREHEAT, then when you are ready to STEAM, simply move the switch to STEAM and you will have warm, moist steam in 2 minutes or less. Jiffy Steamer Company
