Every once in a while, a travel gizmo hits the market that really catches our attention. What these items have in common is that they are portable, compact, and make life for the traveler easy. This week the Collar Perfect travel iron caught our eye.
Small and Powerful
Brandon Dierker is a former Marine who invented the Collar Perfect to keep his uniforms crisp and perfectly creased. The iron is about the size of a cell phone when completely extended but has the power of a full sized iron. It folds in half in order to iron on both sides to make collars and pant leg creases perfect. The double-sided plates work much like a hot clamp, heating both sides of the fabric at once, saving you time and effort.
Should You Own One?
The simple answer is yes. Anyone that has use of iron should have one of these to throw in their suitcase. In fact, this little gadget replaces a full sized iron for most people that purchase it. Frequent business travelers will love the iron when they need to freshen up their business attire for those long meetings. The iron has angled edges so it fits perfectly between shirt and suit buttons. The average vacationer will usually pack a couple of nice outfits in case they need to dress up but when you’re living out of suitcase wrinkles and stale clothes are bound to happen. Instead of relying on the steam from the shower to relax those wrinkles, have the peace of mind that your wardrobe crises can be easily averted with the Collar Perfect. The iron runs about $30 and is worth every penny. For more information check out their website:
