Ways to Get Rid Of Wrinkles Without Iron

  1. Use a blow dryer

Turning your blow dryer on high heat and hitting your wrinkled outfit hard will help you get rid of wrinkles. The heat from the dryer along with the strong air releases the wrinkle in almost no time. 

  1. Use the dryer

Toss your clothes in the dryer for a quick spin if the care instructions allow. The heat and tumbling will have your clothes get rid of wrinkles and come out wrinkle-free. (Just don’t forget to take them out right when the cycle is done!)

  1. Wrinkle release spray

The wrinkle-release spray is a godsend when on the go. The formula relaxes fabric and dries quickly so you can be crease-free, almost anywhere. They make travel-size bottles of this, which we HIGHLY suggest picking up. 

  1. Turn on the shower

Hanging your clothes outside of your steamy shower will help get rid of wrinkles while you’re getting ready for your event.

  1. Hair straightener

Your hair straightener is probably the closest to an iron if you think about it. Using the hot plates to smooth the fabric is super quick and easy– just make sure the temperature is right for your fabric. (We do not want any burns or holes in your favorite shirt)

How to stop wrinkles in the first place

  1. Remove clothes from the dryer as soon as they’re done

If your clothes cool down while bunched up, they’re sure to have wrinkles when you pull them out of the dryer. Take them out as soon as the dryer beeps and hang or fold them to prevent creasing. 

  1. Roll clothes instead of folding them when packing your suitcase

When traveling, it’s easy to start digging through your bag and looking for your favorite shorts. This can lead to a pile of clothes that is zipped up and tossed around for the remainder of your travels. Instead, when packing, roll all of your clothes so they are tight and visible in your suitcase. This method is actually proven to give you more room in your bag as well. 

  1. Use the right amount of laundry detergent

Using too much laundry detergent in your washing machine can leave your clothes feeling crunchy and creased. Make sure to read the measuring directions on your detergent to prevent this. 

  1. Don’t overload your washing machine

Much like putting too much detergent in your washing machine, overloading it with clothes can also cause wrinkling issues. Detergent cannot disperse correctly when your drum is jam-packed so keep this in mind next time you try to squeeze everything into one load.
