Siemens Dressman shirt iron
I don't do the ironing in this house, but you can bet that if I did, I'd be much more selective with the clothes I buy. Siemens has relieved the tedium of ironing shirts with the Dressman.
The equipment looks like the upper body of the mannequins you see in store windows. A freshly washed shirt is simply pulled over the device, and any wrinkles are smoothed out. Twelve fully automatic programs for various types of shirts and materials take care of the rest. The shell made of balloon silk literally inflates itself with hot air and gets the shirts into shape. And the process is easy on the shirts because it uses low temperatures. Broken buttons and unsightly stains will also become things of the past, and additional functions can dry wet jackets or air out sports coats. Read the full press release.
Obviously what we need now is something that does the same for skirts and dresses. A Dresswoman, in fact.
