But why this process is so important and how it can help your business?

Why is Fabric Steaming Important to The Garment Industry

In the garment industry, fabric steaming is an important process that helps to remove wrinkles and give the fabric a softer feel. It is also used to set the dye in fabrics and to prevent shrinkage. There are 2 ways to steam fabric—by using a steamer or by using an iron.

Using a steamer, fill the reservoir with water and turn it on. Hold the steamer about 6 inches from the fabric and move it back and forth until the fabric is thoroughly saturated with steam.

If you are using an iron, fill a spray bottle with water and mist the fabric lightly. Place a towel over the fabric to protect it from direct contact with the iron. Set the iron to the steam setting and hold it about six inches above the fabric. Move it back and forth until the fabric is thoroughly saturated with steam.
