Taking the Wrinkles Out -- Without Ironing

Wrinkle Releaser -- A Product Review

I’m sure some people are like me and enjoy wearing cotton clothing more than the synthetic blends, but probably many people are not as fastidious as I am about wrinkles in their clothes. Since I wear a lot of cotton to work, I want my slacks and cotton shirts to be wrinkle-free. I liked the un-wrinkled look so much that I used to even iron my jeans. Lately I don’t like to iron so much, and I run out of time to iron my clothes because I would rather be doing something else.

I have found a product called Wrinkle Releaser. A similar product called “Febreze” will work much the same way as Wrinkle Releaser. You can purchase this at your local Dollar Tree store for a buck. This liquid spray has been a life-saver for me, allowing me to rush off to work without having to take the time to iron my clothes. I usually decide what to wear as I get ready for my shower each morning and then de-wrinkle those items that I plan to wear for the day.

Wrinkle Releaser really works well. I just lighly spray my clothes with it, then brush my hands over the wrinkles as if smoothing them out. Sometimes I tug a little on the fabric where the wrinkles may be worse. Then I let the items hang on hangers while I shower. When I’m ready to get dressed, the wrinkles are gone.

Now, many people swear that a damp cloth and a quick tumble in the dryer will produce wrinkle free clothing, and I’ve done that, too. But for quickness’ sake, and without using all that electricity to run the dryer, Wrinkle Releaser is a good choice.

One thing to note: if you use Febreze rather than Wrinkle Releaser, you get the added benefit of an odor eraser. Febreze is a Proctor and Gamble product that contains an ingredient called cyclodextrin, which is used to reduce unpleasant smells. Cyclodextrin is a sugar-like compound that traps odor molecules. These molecules would still be present in the fabric but you usually can’t smell them after using Febreze because the odor is masked. Usually you won’t need this on your clothing, but having this around the house for de-wrinkling allows it to be used in many different ways once it is on your shelf. You can use it to remove lingering odors from cooking, smoking, pets, or musty smells from clothes, sofas, carpets and so on.

A person could make their own wrinkle releaser product by mixing a quart of water with 1/4 cup of fabric softener. In a spray bottle, this works just like the commercial stuff. You can use it to stretch tight waistbands or too-small t-shirts, too. Just spray on and tug and pull to stretch that tight waistband or shirt.

What a great idea! I'm going to try that.

I'm using the homemade product now and it seems to work just fine. Spraying just plain tap water on my clothes also works to some degree, but the added fabric softener seems to work even better. I had read that the fabric softener would leave a "coating" on clothes. But I don't use very much fabric softener in my mix and I haven't noticed any difference in my clothes when I'm wearing them.
