When ironing several clothes, the existing handy steam iron has the inconvenience of having to replenish water in the middle with a small water capacity. In addition, water that has been stored for a long time has a problem of germs or viruses. So i propose Riron, which can easily replace clean water at any time to solve these problems. Riron can keep large amounts of water clean in the cradle. Water replacement is also conveniently designed. The amount of water left in the iron can be checked visually through the lighting of the iron, and when the water is insufficient, it will be replenished in a short time if it is mounted on a cradle. Additionally, tap water can be used in the cradle to produce electro-analysised water. Steam using electro-analysised water shows a stronger sterilizing effect than existing steam irons.
