DIY Wrinkle Release Tips
If you don’t have any Downy Wrinkle Releaser close by or would like to try a homemade alternative, here are some tips you can try for your clothes.
These come in handy while traveling and you forgot to pack your iron.
1 tsp fabric softener (liquid)
1 cup water (distilled is best)
- Mix the water and the fabric softener together in a small spray bottle, one that has a fine mist spray nozzle.
Use as you would with a commercial product, spray generously on clothing then tug and pull item to smooth. Hang or lay flat to dry (overnight).
*Try a small spot first to make sure this solution won’t stain the fabric.
Fill a fine nozzled spray bottle with plain water. Spray the clothing item generously then use a hair dryer to blow clothing dry (flatten, straighten clothing item while its drying).
Try The Shower:
Hang garment in the bathroom while you take a shower, the humidity will help pull out the creases. Use a hairdryer to dry smooth if necessary.
Note: Fiber Content
These techniques work best on poly/cottons or rayon blends. If it’s a 100% cotton clothing item that’s heavily creased, an iron will probably be needed.
