REVIEW – A clothes steamer is one of those utility appliances that you pick up in your journey towards adulting and hold on to for years. With this in mind, I present the Hilife Clothes Steamer. This compact fellow is looking to replace my old (and crusty) clothes steamer that’s been around for 10+ years. Does it smoothen the wrinkles? Here’s the review!
What is it?

What’s in the box?

Design and features
The Hilife Clothes Steamer makes a strong little appliance. Measuring in at 8″ by 7″ by 4″ and 1.7 pounds, it feels sturdy and substantial despite its small size.
The steamer includes a 9.2-foot power cord and rubber cable wrap to store it.
You’ll start by filling the chamber with water. There’s a measuring cup included with the kit for filling as shown here.
If you misplace your measuring cup, don’t sweat it. There’s a max fill marker on the side of the chamber so you don’t overfill.
You’ll twist the lid on to lock it into place.
The Hilife Clothes Steamer includes two attachments for your brush that can be attached to the nozzle. Both are the same; I’m guessing they threw in an extra one in case the first gets damaged or lost. If you’re using a brush you’ll want to do this before you turn the steamer on. Things will heat up quickly!
Once you have all that in place you’ll flip the power switch, which lights up to indicate that stuff is happening. It takes approximately 2 minutes for the chamber to boil, so you can get to work. The Hilife Clothes Steamer has a stable base, so I’d be comfortable putting it on a table or countertop. You can see the full length and power cord when it is on the floor.
Once you’re up to temp and see the steam billowing out, it’s time to get to business as we’ll see below. I was able test this unit and it delivered approximately 15 minutes steam per complete fill. According to the material and how wrinkled, this will last you for about 4-6 items.

So my kid, much to his mother’s chagrin, dragged a rolled up t-shirt out of the drawer just before we were going out the other night. You can see the wrinkles.
Hilife Clothes Steamer is here to save the day! Two minutes to get hot, and we’re in business. I like the small size of this steamer. It’s easy to maneuver around corners and angles on the clothes to be straightened out. In the photo below, you can see the progress on your left hand side.
It’s also got a nice punch for a small unit. Despite the heavy cotton fabric, the Hilife Clothes Steamer was able to quickly finish this shirt. The handle design allows for easy gripping and maneuvering.
The brush attachment is a mixed blessing for me. The brush attachment does help smoothen out the fabrics but it can also collect condensation that can then fall on the garment. This is less noticeable with lighter fabrics, which can be steam quickly (like rayon), however I was leaving a trail of condensation on this heavy cotton shirt. I took out the brush to do the follow-up rounds of my testing.
The 9′ long chord is the standout feature here. Demo pictures show that I have ample reach to get around the shirt. My old clothes steamer had a 6 foot chord that you would think would be no problem… but steaming clothes involves hanging stuff, which means that you’re not always right next to an outlet. This can mean that you may need to use some creative gymnastics to get steamer around garments while battling the shorter cord. The extra 3′ of cord here dramatically reduces those issues.
This steamer works well for steaming curtains. The brush is particularly handy for this application, as is the 9′ cord length.
Hilife advertises this unit as great for travel. I don’t know that I buy that. It’s relatively compact, but not THAT compact. If you’ve got room in your luggage it will work, but it still takes up a bit of space.
What I like
- Compact design is easy and maneuverable
- The 9′ cord makes the unit very flexible
- Rugged design
What can be done to improve?
- Nothing that I found.
The Hilife Clothes Steamer has been a great performer and I am happy to say that it replaced my old clothes steamer. The compact size makes it great for maneuverability and easy storage, and the 9′ cord makes it very adaptable to different situations. It is strong and will last many years. This one has no complaints or reservations!
