Thanks for tying ironing and steaming together.
I just used my old iron to melt wax into my apple press and was thinking I was going to have to buy a new one the next time I sew something.
But I have the steamer I bought for blocking. I'll try that first.

I don't think a steamer will help your wrist. The hose on mine adds quite a bit of weight.

This is what I have. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=4360372

It works fine for blocking at least. Heats up fast and lasts long enough for blocking. Steaming curtains may require a refill.
I use tap water and figure I'll delime it when I notice it slowing down.

The steam is HOT, much worse than touching a hot iron.
