“Will you agree with wearing used clothes for another several times before they eventually end up in the washing machine? Especially for clothes that are barely used such that they are only worn for several hours and are still in pretty clean conditions. How about outerwear, cardigans, jackets, and hoodies?”

We do consider the fact that clothes that have been on standby for too long, hanging on a cloth stand or hanger, may not be hygienic to be worn again - especially during this Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, we end up throwing our barely used clothes into our laundry baskets and very fast they start to pile up!


This will definitely eat up into our water consumption and bill. Not to mention that you will spend more energy to do the chores of putting the clothes in the washing machine, hanging the already washed clothes to dry them, folding and ironing them, so on and so forth.


Do take note that washing your clothes too often will reduce the lifespan of the clothes!

So, How?

‘Liven’ by Stephanie might just be the right solution to this problem. It can help to reduce germs and odour for those barely used clothes and it can be used to refresh your long-kept clothes in the wardrobe too.

‘Liven’ offers a hands-free process of refreshing barely used clothes with a total 10-minute cycle of hot steaming followed by hot airing. It is a chemical-free clothes refresher that firstly utilizes hot steam to disinfect, reduce wrinkles, and neutralize odour on the clothes. The hot air will then prepare dry, warm, and fresh ready-to-wear tops for the users. The 10 minutes waiting duration also allows the users to first get themselves ready for the day while waiting for their clothes to be refreshed with ‘Liven’.

‘Liven’ is designed to be compact and very easy to install. You need to plug its cable in the socket, and voilà! Its water tank could be used up to three times once it is fully refilled.

It offers adjustable hanger height that caters to various clothes lengths. The clothes' bottom edges can be inserted and clipped into the two tiny gaps created on the ‘Liven’ body to help straighten the clothes and reduce wrinkles on them.

There are two choices of leg heights, enabling ‘Liven’ to either stand on its own or be placed on a table. Its base serves as excess cable storage to prevent the cable from cluttering. When ‘Liven’ is placed on a table, the base could also be used as a tray to put several piles of stuff on it.
