Yes, I use a plastic hanger bc the wood can stain your clothing. There is a spot to hang next to where you hook the hose at the top. Love this steamer. Word of warning, do not leave water in it when not in use. After each use, I take the water bucket out and allow it to continue steaming until the water in the machine is gone. This prevents spores from growing and prolongs usage of steamer I believe.
I asked Jiffy about this. The rep said that the 2000 is preferred because the water bottle is locked in place. He said that the J2's water bottle is just held by the gravity of the water in the bottle and that when the water gets low, it can leak slightly.
He also said that the j2000 fits under a counter better, as the water bottle is lower profile. Mine just came in the mail today!
It depends on where you live. Some states have soft some states have hard water. If you live in an area where the water is not hard (high in calcium, magnesium, etc.) then you don't need to use distilled water. If your iron has not been building up deposits then you should not worry about the steamer either. Hope this helps.
I personally think this steamer is good for shirts especially the wrinkles. If you want something that quickly presses out your clothes then I will recommend jiffy. But if you want the starchy look of shirts then I guess a regular iron would do you best . On a scale of 1-10 and ten being good I will give jiffy an 8/10 for shirts.
This machine puts off a lot of steam. It does a fantastic job but unless your house is very dry, I think that you would be left with a fairly damp comforter if it's not hanging up where it can get air to both sides.
