5 ironing hacks to get wrinkle-free clothes without using an iron!
Hate ironing? Find out how you can say goodbye to your iron forever!
Have you ever heard of anyone professing their love for ironing or ditching a night out as they had to iron? No, neither have we. The truth about ironing is that it’s time-consuming, boring and never ending. Why spend so much effort if you are able to tackle it effectively? Especially when you have to juggle work and kids at the same time
#1 The shower method
The first tip requires minimal effort and is a great last minute solution for creases: All you have to do is to hang the affected garment up in your bathroom, and take a nice warm shower. In less than 10 minutes, once you are done with your shower, remove your garment from the hanger and have a look at the affected areas. You will be amazed that the steam will have got rid of the unsightly wrinkles, leaving you with crease-free clothing.
If you are really rushed for time, try shutting all the windows and doors in your bathroom to avoid steam from escaping.
#2 Use a spray bottle
Preparing your clothes for the next day and noticed some wrinkles on them? Grab your spray bottle, fill it with water and spray away. Be careful not to overdo it, just a little water goes a long way!
#3 Your flat iron: not just for straightening your hair
This method might seem a little like ironing but some have found it to be faster and more effective in getting rid of wrinkles than ironing. The flat iron works best on collars, cuffs of your shirt and the hem of your dress.
Make sure your straighteners are clean from hair products to prevent dirt stuck to your favourite white t-shirt!
#4 Flatten under your mattress
Here’s another reason to love your bed, as it can be also used to de-wrinkle your clothes. Roll the creased garments like how you would to a burrito and place them under your mattress. Leave them there for about an hour or so and let your mattress work its magic. Your clothes will be crease-free and ready to wear!
Ensure that your mattress is clean first, to avoid dust mites getting into your clothes.
#5 Tumble dry tough creases
The final quick fix would be to tumble dry your garments. Just spray a little water on your creased clothes and dump them in the tumble dryer. After just a few minutes, they’re ready to be worn!
Remove the the clothes from the dryer as soon as they’re done. If you leave them in for too long, the wrinkles will return, and you will have to start over again.
