Open Thread: Easy Home Handheld Fabric Steamer

In addition to selling an array of laundry detergents and fabric softeners to get your clothes clean, Aldi rotates various laundry-related products through its stores at different times during the year. We’re fans of Aldi’s clothes drying racks, laundry baskets, and laundry carts, for example. One product we haven’t tried but that we’ve seen in stores each year is the Easy Home Handheld Fabric Steamer.

The Easy Home Handheld Fabric Steamer is entirely different from the Easy Home Hand Held Steam Cleaner that is often in Aldi stores around the same time of year. The Hand Held Steam Cleaner purports to clean household surfaces, and we were not impressed when we reviewed it. The Handheld Fabric Steamer, on the other hand, is for use exclusively on fabrics. This post deals with the Hand Held Fabric Steamer.

What We Know:

Easy Home Handheld Fabric Steamer

The Easy Home Handheld Fabric Steamer (product code 44614) sold for $14.99 in February of 2020. It also sold for that price in 2019, and it sold for just $12.99 in 2018. The steamer is an ALDI Find (Special Buy), which means it’s only in stores for a short time and then it’s gone until the next year.

Aldi also sells a different, larger, more expensive upright fabric steamer: the Easy Home Upright Fabric Steamer, which last appeared in stores in August of 2019 and cost $39.99.

Going back to the 2020 Easy Home Handheld Fabric Steamer, features include:

  • 100% chemical free
  • Removes wrinkles, stains, and odors from a variety of fabrics
  • Heats up in 35 seconds
  • 8.8-oz. detachable water tank capacity
  • Steam lock button
  • Viewable water level indicator
  • Includes steam brush, lint brush, and measuring cup

We found a video about the 2019 model here, and for something a little different, here’s a YouTuber reviewing a version of the fabric steamer sold at Aldi in the United Kingdom in 2019.

The 2019 fabric steamer came with a three-year warranty, and we assume this year’s model comes with a similar warranty, but since we haven’t gotten our hands on it yet we can’t say for sure.

What We Don’t Know:

We have not used the Easy Home Handheld Fabric Steamer, so we don’t know how well it works. We also don’t know what kind of warranty the 2020 model may come with.
