How are steam irons
different from dry irons?

We are all well aware of the power of smoothly pressed clothes and their impact on our personality and others.

It's okay to roam around inside our houses with crumpled t-shirts and pajamas on, but when we step out of the house, it's necessary to put on neatly pressed clothes that make you look more put together and stylish.

Well-pressed clothes instantly make you look more confident and presentable. Shopping for an iron that fits your needs is not that easy. It is a confusing task.

Steam irons and dry irons are the two best types of cloth irons available in the market today.

Let's find out the difference between a steam iron and cloth iron:-

Steam iron is an ironing tool with steam holes in its soleplate that produces hot steam to eliminate severe wrinkles. Simultaneously, a dry iron has a soleplate that heats up and can be pressed on the crumpled clothes to make them smoother.

01. The water tank

The significant difference in both of these cloth irons is the water tank. Steam iron has a water tank to store water and produce steam out of it. Having a water tank helps it produce sufficient steam for perfect and effective ironing. On the other hand, there's no water tank in dry irons; they work on the heated soleplate.

02. Steam holes

Steam irons have steam holes to produce steam, which helps remove the stubborn wrinkles on your clothes; some of them have several spots that produce a lot of steam to make your clothes smooth and wrinkle-free. However, the steam holes can be difficult to clean.

Dry iron does not have any steam holes, and they have a flat soleplate, which is comparatively easier to clean.

03. Versatility

Steam irons are very versatile as they can be used as dry irons too; all you need is to switch off steam production and empty the water tank. Dry iron doesn't have that quality; they are basic irons that produce heat for ironing.

The significant steam iron benefit is that it is excellent for fabric care; it can double up as dry iron, too, and then it can be used on any fabric you want to. Now it's clear that steam iron is much better than dry iron.
