Introduction: How to Remove Wrinkles Without an Iron

Picture of How to Remove Wrinkles Without an Iron

I show a few ways to remove wrinkles from clothing without an iron. On my “How to Pack Clothes for Traveling” video a few people mentioned that this way of packing may cause wrinkles in the clothing. So I am going to show some simple ways to remove wrinkles from clothing for when someone is traveling and doesn’t have a clothing iron. In different situations you may want to get wrinkles out of your clothing but do not have an iron or other implements on hand. This is why I show a few different methods. The efficiency of each method may vary.

Step 1: Methods

1. Blow Dryer Method: A hair dryer is a great quick fix to get wrinkles out of shirts especially. Use your hair dryer to “dry” areas where the wrinkles are. The heat will help de-wrinkle and you can spritz with water to soften the fabric. Just be careful not to get too close to the fabric.

2. Dryer Method : Place your clothing in the dryer and add a damp cloth/sock or 2-3 ice cubes. Leave for about 15 minutes.

3. Shower Method: Hang the clothing on the shower rod, turn the water onto hot and leave the water on for 5-15 minutes.

4. Spray and Hang Method: Hang the clothing out in the sun and spritz with a water sprayer. Leave for about an hour.

If it's just a shirt collar, spray it lightly with water and smooth it with your hand. It'll dry quickly while you wear it =)

how about, get up and do your laundry like a normal person?

Please don´t use the shower method, there is no water in California!!!

Great ideas. Sometimes I'm just too lazy to iron my clothes and use the spray & hang method you mentioned above. Works like a charm.
