There's no on-off or zero/neutral feature. So once you plug in, it's ON. And it means you have to watch out and wait for the water to boil until the steam comes out. This process doesn't take long because the water compartment is tiny. But if you forget and do something else, all the water is boiled quickly. Not sure what will happen if one forgets to attend to this. Once water is fully boiled at the level steam comes out, you still have to keep it plugged in. This could make the process a bit troublesome because we usually stand to use this steamer. Make sure there's a stand to hang the clothes and put this steamer when you need a quick rest. Also as the water compartment is tiny, it takes several rounds (including waiting for the steam to come up), to complete wrinkling out a piece of clothe. The steam can be quite hot so users should be careful. It works on some fabrics and texture better than others. As it's not hard pressed, wrinkles can come back easily. If you want to have the wrinkles cleared fast, it's better to point it closer to clothes; but then clothes got damped. And thus, the feel on skin is not really great. It doesn't work well on certain work clothes that I want to look sharp. Yet, it is still good for the weight, travel, and certain clothes [design]. I haven't used the brush; maybe it'd help with moderating the amount of mist left on clothes and the heat. Very glad they invented this option for travel purpose though.
