Keeping your clothes wrinkle-free can be easier said than done, especially once they’ve been stowed in a suitcase. And with all of the traveling you’ll be doing this summer season (not to mention the weddings!), you’re going to need a way to keep your things looking nice and pressed without having to hope that your hotel has one.

And sometimes, even when the hotel provides a hair dryer or iron, you really just wish you’d brought your own, anyway.

Thankfully, this genius product will be a real life-saver the next time you’re on-the-go and need a quick ironing. The Ovo 150GT Portable Steam Iron made by Reliable is sure to come in handy. It’s a compact 7.5-by-5 inches and will easily fit into a suitcase or overnight bag. It’s equipped to iron and/or steam garments, so you’re sure to be wrinkle-free whenever you need to be. 

As if the size of this tool didn’t lend itself to being taken anywhere and everywhere enough, it also comes with a travel bag so you can keep its cord and accessories easily wrapped up, all in one place.

It’s available on Amazon for $49:

Many of those who have tried this product gave it high ratings on Amazon. People love how portable this thing is, but do warn that it’s a bit heavy, weighing in at 2.25 pounds, for its small size. But that’s only a big of deal if you’re worried about baggage-weight restrictions when flying.

The other thing to highlight is that this product doesn’t have multiple heat settings, which could impact the types of garments you choose to steam vs. iron.

“It is very small, although quite heavy, and there are NO heat controls, which is why only 4 stars, so only use as a steamer with synthetics. It can, however, iron cotton t-shirts, dress shirts, and Jeans, no problem,” one review reads.

Another review pointed out that this definitely does everything it’s supposed to, with no dripping involved. “This works great as an upright steamer as it gets very hot and it does not drip. The design makes it very easy to use. I appreciate the case it came in, which is heat resistant. It also works wonderfully as a traditional iron. I got this to replace a much larger, dripping steamer and am so glad I did. Travels well due to its small size,” another customer wrote on Amazon.

So, you’ll definitely want to consider packing this along with you to keep your clothes in tip-top shape wherever you go.

Happy (wrinkle-free) travels!
