As much as we love our cotton shirts, there is no denying the fact that this light fabric is prone to wrinkling. Nobody likes to wear a wrinkled shirt so you have to make sure that your clothes are ironed and maintained. Sometimes when you are getting ready, you decide to wear that particular shirt but on taking it out, you find it all wrinkled up. This definitely is not a great thing to discover especially when you are in a hurry. Even if you are not in a hurry, you might just not be in the mood to iron. This is where these hacks come to the rescue. These may not give you the perfectly ironed look but they will save the day-
The Shower Hack
This is the most popular hack to smoothen clothes. Hang your clothes in the bathroom while you take a shower. The steam from the shower will straighten the clothes quite a bit. It takes just about ten minutes of hot shower when the bathroom door is closed.
Spray and Go
Spray clean water on your shirts and shake them like you are fanning someone with a Japanese-fan with all your power. This should rid your shirts of wrinkles.
Yes the hair styling tools come handy in removing wrinkles from clothes. Borrow a hair straightener from the ladies and use it to straighten the collars and cuffs of the shirts. Straighteners can also be used to smoothen wrinkles on the hems and other smaller areas. Make sure that the hair straightener is clean or you might stain your favorite shirt.
A hair dryer also helps in wrinkle-removal. Damp the clothes with water mist and dry the area pointing a hair dryer towards it.
Sleep On It
This is the favorite hack of hostel dwellers but can be used by anyone in need. Roll your shirt or any garment tightly and put it under your mattress. You can use some other heavy article to press the clothes. Wait for an hour and take it out. Your clothes will be smoother.
Mix white vinegar and water in the ratio of 1:3. Spray this solution on the wrinkled area of clothes and leave them to air-dry. Voila! No more wrinkles!
