How To Remove Wrinkles Without An Iron

Wrinkle emergencies. We’ve all had them. Maybe you’re traveling and your suitcase didn’t quite keep the fabric of your dress as smooth as you’d hoped… but there’s no iron at the place you’re staying.

Or maybe you’re at home, dying to wear that beautiful tunic you love (that’s been somehow living on your floor for the past few weeks)… but your iron is nowhere to be found? Have no fear, my dears, because there are plenty ways to smooth out lightly-wrinkled clothes without an actual iron. Here are some of my favorites! If you have any iron-without-an-iron tips, please share them below!


Fill a spray bottle with water, hang your clothes on a clothesline outside (on a dry, sunny day), and give them a little spritz wherever they’re wrinkled. The moisture will help release the wrinkles and the sun will dry your clothes to keep them that way.

Dryer method

Add a damp washcloth into the dryer along with your wrinkled piece of clothing. Let it dry on low to medium heat for about 15 minutes, and voila!

Hairdryer method

Another type of dryer to use… the hairdryer. First, slightly dampen your clothes wherever the wrinkles are. Smooth the fabric with your hands and use the hairdryer to give a burst of hot air until the wrinkles disappear.Mini floral blowdryer

Straightening iron method

This is my personal go-to, as my straightening iron always seems to be around! This can get tricky because the hinged part can restrict you from getting to certain areas, but if you get a little innovative, there’s usually a way around it! Just be careful not to set the straightener to too high of a temperature or to leave it in one spot on an article of clothing for too long.

Steamy shower method

Hang your wrinkled clothing on the shower rod and adjust the shower head so that the water won’t hit it. Take a hot shower for 5-10 minutes while the steam works it’s magic on your clothes!

Towel method

Lay out your wrinkled piece of clothing on a smooth, flat, clean surface. Press a damp towel over the wrinkled area and use your hands to smooth out the spot.

Adore each of these steam showers

There is no doubt in their mind that with time, and hard work their dreams will come
true. While money, sports cars and good looks may offer some initial advantage
to some men, most of the time it still isn’t enough to keep the beautiful woman interested for long.
Another concern of women is how natural the panties
will feel to the human touch.

Magnificent site. Lots of useful info here. I’m sending it to
a few buddies ans also sharing in delicious. And certainly,
thanks for your sweat!

Maintain sufficient chicken toys inside top section of the

There were times of biggest happiness, when he
was young and fell in love. The subconscious then relates the
emotions of self-esteem and achievement

Each new age brought the criminal element forward with it.
The says of free proxies and tunnelling services
are over, and as the Chinese government begins to tighten its grip on what comes in and
out of the country informationally speaking, the need for a vpn to bypass internet censorship in China grows every day.
It’s probably some mix of the two, so I have to give him
props for not going too far in either direction.
