Most of us hate the dreaded weekly ironing, or, if you’re anything like me, if it really needs ironing, I drag out the ironing board and iron and iron that one item of clothing! My mother does all of her ironing on Mondays!
When I ran across this tutorial I got super excited! This stuff really works, folks! You can use your favorite fabric softener in this mixture and it works the same as the one she uses in this tutorial. I was glad because I love the smell of Downey!
To make the DIY wrinkle releaser spray I used:
I like using the Downy fabric softener because it is what I buy to wash my clothes in. I like making this to put in a travel size bottle so that I can stash it in my purse or can easily add it to my suitcase if I am traveling. You can always double the recipe if you want to add it to a larger spray bottle.
I found a shirt that I hadn’t worn in a while and used the DIY wrinkle releaser spray on it. It had been waded up in the bottom of my closet so there were some real deep set wrinkles in this shirt.
I sprayed the shirt a couple of times, pulled on the bottom, top, and sides of the shirt to get the wrinkles out. I think it is a lot easier to get the wrinkles out when you have the clothes hanging up like I do here.
It’s amazing how well this works! As you can see, it got almost every wrinkle out and dries pretty fast. This only cost me about $0.15 or $0.25 to make compared to the travel sized bottles that are selling on Amazon for $6! I’ll be making this DIY wrinkle releaser spray from now on. Forget paying high prices. I believe it’s the exact same thing!
Watch this step by step tutorial so you can put up your iron too!
