Get Rid Of Wrinkles Without An Iron With These
Creative Hacks
Wrinkle-Release Spray
Wrinkle-release spray is a popular and effective solution for smoothing out clothes. All you need to do is spray it on the wrinkled garment and shake it out.
If you don't have store-bought spray, you can make a DIY version by combining 1 cup of distilled water, 1 teaspoon of fabric softener, and 1 teaspoon of
rubbing alcohol.
Another alternative is to mix one part white vinegar with three parts water and add a drop of citrus-scented essential oil into a spray bottle.
Shower Steam
To smooth out your clothes, hang the wrinkled garment near a hot shower. Ensure the doors and windows are closed to keep the steam in, but avoid splashing the item with water.
The heat from the shower will break down the wrinkles. While it isn't the most powerful way to get rid of wrinkles, this quick and convenient solution is ideal for those in a rush.
Blow Dryer
A hair blow dryer can smooth your hair as well as wrinkled clothes. To use this method, dampen the wrinkled clothes slightly and lay them on a flat surface.
Aim the nozzle towards the wrinkled areas, gently running it over the fabric, using your hands to flatten it as you go. Keep the dryer at a safe distance
to avoid burns.
Flat Iron
A flat iron can serve as a mini iron to de-wrinkle small clothing items. Clamp the iron onto the wrinkled area and slide it from one end to the other, as you would with hair.
Ensure the flat iron is clean and free of any hair product residue. Also, be mindful of temperature settings because different materials tolerate different heat levels.
The weight of a mattress can smooth out wrinkles. Tightly roll the clothing item and place it under the mattress for 15-30 minutes for wrinkle-free clothes.
