Ironing your clothes is such a mundane, annoying task. If you’ve resorted to only buying wrinkle-free fabrics or pushing your linen shirts to the back of the closet, you’ll be glad to know that there’s a way to make ironing easier. In fact, the Nori Press is actually kind of fun to use.

The innovative Nori Press looks like a large hair straightener, and you can use it like one on your clothes. Simply plug it in, choose your fabric setting and place your clothing between its hot plates. Then, apply pressure by clamping the iron and dragging slowly. The slower you press and drag, the less you’ll have to repeat this step to get the wrinkles out.

However, if you prefer to steam your clothes, you can do that, too. Fill the Nori Press with water, choose the steam option, and you can either press it with steam or point the tip of the device upwards to gently steam clothing.

It’s so smart, you may wonder why you never thought of it yourself. Plus, it’s much easier to store in your closet than a full-sized iron and ironing board. It’s definitely a more compact option; however, it’s 14 inches long and has extended arms for reaching across your garment.

The Nori Press also sells a Fabric Facial solution to refresh, deodorize and sanitize clothing. You can spray it on clothes before ironing or fill the Nori Press with it and use it to steam clothing.

“I have been using my Nori Press for months now, and have been thrilled with the results,” wrote one reviewer on its website. “It’s so lightweight and compact to take on weekend trips, but also perfect to use at home before heading to work or to a night out!”

“The Nori Press is the best money I’ve ever spent!” wrote another reviewer. “It is a lifesaver! It’s super easy to use, is compact (even fits in my carry-on), is really quick to heat up, does not get my clothes wet like every other steamer I’ve tried, and comes in really cute colors!”

The Nori Press costs $120, and it comes in white, light blue and a limited-edition matte navy. And it’s worth every single penny. Get it online, and you may seriously be excited to iron your next shirt.
