# Hello Hiveians # What are your experiences like using a coal iron?. You probably may not have known the ease you enjoy using a steam iron when making new outfit. It is very much less stressful and flattens seam very well. Looking back from where we have come from, the advancement from using Charcoal iron and the other electrical ironing devices with no provision for steam, you will see that technology has lessen our burden. This was how it looked like in the past ![images (9)_1617841701204.jpg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/monica-ene/242YC5Ee5LQyktfFdBpbb11op8QLUYTLtMZonj1qD1DpysKPDuSR8vaYrBfTZafPnyQ4k.jpg) <a href='https://www.google.com/search?q=Charcoal+iron&client=ms-android-transsion-tecno-rev1&prmd=ivn&sxsrf=ALeKk03XC8QXwrtu0M3B8YUpmWaKrvOTkg:1617841837828&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwigia_Asu3vAhUB1RoKHQ5kD1wQ_AUoAXoECAQQAQ&biw=360&bih=664#imgrc=npCDWXvO0mK1ZM '> source </a> Before we moved to something like this but without the steam. ![IMG_20210408_055844_148.jpg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/monica-ene/EoGw3StJvnnxDLy4VK9BTYhGhwKYpohPjsVbEWHTsdPFBgAWELKfcdYLGcmba5EneCU.jpg) And now here we are ![IMG_20210408_001436_515.jpg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/monica-ene/EoK5RDfmJdvLqz8Vy3EmM2B3oiJXLzB5iQuFG8PzWgo2mtiXobWhPEzgcQkdABnzKfA.jpg) ---- ![IMG_20210408_001405_990.jpg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/monica-ene/23wC3YLpwahBTd8NpnB8SdZnch9Anv6MEEQZwVLWPjtXPcezwyPEd4FRSjH2rXZrwPApC.jpg) The more convenient and comfortable one. Another stage we might probably get to is when we started having pressing irons that can do the jobs by themselves or probably a robot to control them. Ironing is one task I never liked before and I could go out in squeezed clothes just because am too lazy to iron them straight, but with fashion its inevitable if you want to get clean flatten steam. I like to keep gifts items or money down a memory lane and the moment someone gifted me these cash, I turned them into material gift buying this fairly used steam iron in the name of that person. Someone told me that doing such means am keeping track of the people who invested in my life positively.
