29p ‘homemade spray quickly’ removes wrinkles from clothes so ‘you don’t need an iron’

When doing the laundry it is almost impossible to avoid creases and wrinkles, and ironing them out is a time consuming task, that increases your energy bills...READ THE FULL STORY HERE▶▶▶

One of the best ways to get rid of wrinkles without an iron is to prevent them from happening in the first place.

Once households remove hot clothes from the dryer, promptly fold or hang them versus tossing them into a laundry basket or in a pile.

If wrinkles have appeared, laundry experts at Bakers Centre Laundry, have shared four of the “most effective” ways to banish them so “you don’t need an iron”.
1. Use a hair straightener

A hair straightener makes for a “perfect ironing tool” for “quick fixes” as it “works wonders” on small areas, like a shirt collar or between buttons.

Before beginning with this method, ensure there is no product buildup left from your hair on the iron to prevent stains on clothing.

Delicates, like silk, should be ironed on the lowest temperature setting possible, and sweaters can be ironed at a warmer temperature.
2. A wrinkle spray remover

If you don’t have a hair straightener on hand, a wrinkle remover spray will do the trick.

The experts claimed that most are safe for all fabrics and are made with a fabric-releasing technology. Simply spray the garment and shake vigorously.

For those who don’t have a wrinkle remover spray a “homemade spray can quickly be made with some everyday household items”.

The laundry pros advised: “Try mixing one part vinegar with three parts water. Using a spray bottle, mist the garment all over and let it air dry. The wrinkles will all smooth out quickly.”

Alternatively, households can mix one cup of distilled vinegar, one teaspoon of fabric softener, and one teaspoon of rubbing alcohol and spray the wrinkled area.

White vinegar is incredibly cheap to buy from local supermarkets with it retailing for 29p at Tesco and Asda.
3. Use a hot pot

Whilst this method is “effective”, it doe “work best” for wrinkles on the smaller side. For this method, boil a medium-sized pot of water, and once it starts to steam, spill the water out.

The experts instructed: “Then, use the bottom like you would an iron. Avoid ‘ironing’ plastic embellishments, like buttons, because this can melt them.”
4. Steam from the shower

Steam from your shower can help “release stubborn wrinkles”, but make sure to close all the windows and doors in the bathroom, put the clothing on a hanger, and hang it in the back of the shower or on the shower curtain rod.

The laundry gurus explained that in about fifteen minutes, the steam will “smooth out the wrinkles”, leaving households ready to take on the day.
