The iron that steams like crazy is a Euro Steam, got it at a quilt show about two years ago.
The Soy milk made from scratch from dry soy beans does not smell, well it does in a way. It smells somewhat like fresh mowed grass but once the silk is soaked and air dried the smell goes away. The smell comes back when the dried fabric is ironed but over a period of a couple of weeks it dissipates entirely. Or it might be that my nose gets used to the smell.. Once the painting is dry you do not wash the top which is why I like using this technique so much. Paint, press, sandwich and quilt.
