Do you love smooth neatly pressed clothes but hate ironing or too lazy to drop your fabrics with the dry cleaner? These clever tricks will no doubt make your heart skip a little beat.
Ice in the dryer machine:
Throw a couple of ice cubes into your tumble dryer with your wrinkled clothes.
Run the machine on its hottest setting for a couple of minutes, take the garments out, shake them and they will be wrinkle-free.
Life –hackers say this trick has a similar effect to using the steam setting on your iron.
Do not over-fill the dryer or try it out on thinner materials, such as blouses or scarves.
Dampen clothes and then dry:
If you need to smooth out a few items of clothing that are only lightly wrinkled, skip the iron and use your dryer! Use a spray bottle of water to dampen the items, then toss them in your dryer for a few minutes. The heat of your dryer will cause the moisture on the clothes to turn to steam, and those wrinkles will fall right out. Throw those clothes on, and you’ll be ready for anything.
Hang clothes immediately:
Once your clothes are done drying, hang them up immediately! This simple step can really cut down on the amount of ironing you have to do. The clothes will still be warm enough that wrinkles won’t have affected it yet.
Shake it out vigorously:
When you’re transferring clothes from the washer to the dryer, give each item a vigorous shake with an downward-upward-downward movement. A good shake helps to untwist and untangle your clothes, so they’ll have a better chance of coming out of the dryer wrinkle-free.
Blow dry your dress:
Another hair care tool to the rescue! Shots of hot air from your blow dryer can release wrinkles from your clothing. Move the dryer quickly, holding it a few inches away from the fabric. Just dampen the cloth first.
The shower steam style:
Set the shower or tap and let the water run at the highest setting. Hang your clothes on a hanger from the shower rod for some minutes with the water running. Shut the bathroom door and let the magic of steam naturally de-wrinkle your outfit.
The spray bottle and Sun:
If the weather’s nice, take the wrinkle removal outside. You’ll need a spray bottle filled with water. Lightly spray your clothing, and then let it hang outside for an hour. The outside air and sun will dry the garment, and as it dries, the wrinkles will naturally ease off.
This will be pretty beneficial to those who do have inconsistent or no power supply. What other ironing hacks have worked for you? Please share with us in the comment section.
