Default Re: Can I bring an iron? Is there one available on the ship

Pardon me, but I beg to differ on this. The steamer has heating elements in it as well. Once the water has boiled away it is essentially an electrically energized heater.

The steamer might be safer, but it is not non-hazardous. I think the NFPA ought to mandate automatic shutoffs when the unit is left on for an extended period of time. I know my home iron has this feature.

Regards,
Thomas
