If you are like me, you probably have a husband who has never used an iron before in his life. Why? Because why take the time to pull the iron out and set up the ironing board when you can just pull out another shirt and wait for your wife to fix the problem. 😉
Well, don’t tell the HH, but I don’t get the iron out very often either. I prefer cheater methods–and with so many of the fabrics being wrinkle resistant these day, cheating works like a charm.
When I need a quick wrinkle relaxer, I toss the shirt, pants, cape…whatever into the dryer along with 2 ice cubes. I dry it for five minutes and presto! wrinkle free magic. I don’t have to lug out the ironing board and then wait around for the iron to heat up…and then cool, and the HH goes to work pressed and professional. I am not saying I am a homemaking wizard, but let’s face it, this one is about as close as it gets.
**If you don’t want to try the ice cube trick, you can always wet a washcloth and toss it in the dryer with the wrinkly culprit. You can also spray the clothing with a water bottle, smooth with your hands, and then hang to dry. However you choose, the point is to avoid setting up the ironing board at all costs. Ha!
