Wearing wrinkles clothes is a cardinal sin of fashion. Whether you are going to work, a party, or just running errands around town, you’ll want to make sure your clothes are clean and wrinkle-free. Arguably, one of the easiest ways to remove wrinkles from clothes is to use a hot iron. But what if you don’t have access to an iron?
In the event that you don’t have access to an iron, you can remove wrinkles from clothes with a hair dryer. Either hang the garment on a clothes hanger or place it on a flat surface and drag the hair dryer slowly across the surface (about 2 inches away). The heat from the hair dryer should flatten some, if not all, of the wrinkles. Just remember to begin by using the low heat setting, and if that isn’t enough, gradually increase the heat until it does the trick.
Turn on The Shower
A second technique for flattening wrinkled clothes is to place them inside the bathroom while the shower is running. A hot shower will produce steam, turning your bathroom into a steam room. And it should come as little-ton surprise that steam is a helpful tool for eliminating wrinkles. When using this method, it’s recommended that you use the hottest water setting possible, keep the bathroom door and window closed, and make sure the vent is turned off. You want to keep as much steam as possible inside your bathroom for maximum de-wrinkling effect.
The next time you need a dress shirt pressed but can’t find the clothes iron, try placing the shirt inside the dryer on the tumble or no/low-heat setting. After about 10-15 minutes, the shirt could come out flat with fewer wrinkles.
Of course, another solution is to use a de-wrinkle spray, such as Downey Wrinkle Releaser. Products such as these contain special chemicals that are designed to “relax” fabric and flatten wrinkles. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s going to eliminate all wrinkles from your garment, but it’s certainly useful in situations where a few minor wrinkles are present. Carrying around a bottle of de-wrinkle spray is an excellent idea for hard-working men who are always on the go.
These are just a few simple ways to remove wrinkles from your clothes without an iron. Assuming you have the time, you can always take your wrinkled garment to a professional dry cleaner, which will not only clean but also de-wrinkle the item.
