I've been looking for a steamer for blocking acrylics and acrylic blends for 6 months or so. Watched for and read posts here on KP for recommendations. I have found it!

It is a Beautural-Steamer, which is on Amazon for $34.99 and claims to not spit and sputter, as well works vertically AND horizontally. Received it on Saturday and steamed the first shawl on Sunday. Have now steamed four shawls and could not be more pleased. I found all of its claims to be true. Each shawl dried in an afternoon and came out beautifully.

It is here on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Beautural-Steamer-1200-Watt-Powerful-Sterilize/dp/B01N1QE5ME/ref=sr_1_2_acs_osp_osp20-e47682d4-de_1?s=arts-crafts&ie=UTF8&qid=1540939922&sr=1-2-acs&keywords=steamer+handheld&tag=bestcont06-20&ascsubtag=e47682d4-de59-4a59-b421-0f5ab13e959f&linkCode=oas&cv_ct_id=amzn1.osp.e47682d4-de59-4a59-b421-0f5ab13e959f&cv_ct_pg=search&cv_ct_wn=osp-search&pf_rd_p=53b688eb-671a-4acd-886f-dc89fa36d3d2&pd_rd_w=f6zHF&pd_rd_wg=h6BAd&pf_rd_t=301&pf_rd_r=6BP8BFWGCPDXJ4Z0VPMR&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-sx-inline&pf_rd_i=steamer+handheld&pd_rd_r=87173753-50c0-43d0-8a88-b572de2ce37c&creativeASIN=B01N1QE5ME&pf_rd_t=301&pd_rd_i=B01N1QE5ME&pf_rd_i=steamer+handheld&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pd_rd_wg=h6BAd&pf_rd_s=desktop-sx-inline&pf_rd_p=53b688eb-671a-4acd-886f-dc89fa36d3d2&pf_rd_r=6BP8BFWGCPDXJ4Z0VPMR&pd_rd_r=87173753-50c0-43d0-8a88-b572de2ce37c&pd_rd_w=f6zHF

Thank you

I am glad you found the perfect one for you. I don't usually block my items that are made out of acrylic, but sometime I do. I, too, like my steamer which works both horizontally and vertically.

Congratulations on finding one that works horizontally. Being able to easily steam block acrylics makes such a difference.

Thanks for sharing this information! I have purchased two different steamers over the years, but neither can be used horizontally. I will check out this one.

I bought the same one in April (for $29), but lent it to my daughter to steam some new drapes, and she has claimed it! YESTERDAY I just bought the same one again! It worked great for blocking. Can be used vertically and holds a good amount of water.

Just checked Amazon Australia and they are between AUD $52.00 to $90.00 something here. A bit too much for me I'm afraid.
