Any traveling businessperson needs to make sure that their exterior doesn’t reflect the jet-lagged and overworked interior that they’re dealing with on a regular basis. One way to do that is keeping up with hygiene, and the other is to have clean, crisp clothing. Ironing a shirt can make you appear as though you’re ready to take on the day, but not every hotel has all the tools you need to make this happen. No one wants to waltz into a meeting with a wrinkly shirt, but you don’t exactly want to haul around a iron and ironing board either.
If you want something compact and ready for action, then the Travel Smart Mini Iron would be a good idea to have handy. This little thing can get up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit, and sports an 8′ long cord. It’s dual voltage, and comes with a pouch that can withstand a good deal of heat. This costs $25, and would be useful for stays in places that don’t have a iron sitting around. However, you’ll still have to find a makeshift ironing board.
