Toss away your ironing board and iron, ’cause this easy hack will make your clothes wrinkle-free in a few minutes.
Who has time to iron anyway (I certainly don’t!) so I was super excited to learn about this simple and super cheap trick to smooth out your clothes.
This hack has been floating around the internet for years but it’s the first time I’ve tried it and let me tell you….it works!
So here’s what to do:
Simply pop two or three ice cubes in your tumble dryer and dial up the setting on high for a few minutes and hey presto, no more wrinkles.
Many have tried it out and most have given this unconventional method a big thumbs up.
So how does it work?
The ice cubes turn your dryer into a steamer. When the ice melts, the heat of the surrounding air turns the water into steam. This pretty much does the same job of an iron.
However, this really only works with a few articles in the dryer – if you overload the dryer, it won’t work.
The Daily Mail suggests that hanging up clothes as soon as they are finished in the dryer can also help smooth out the wrinkles without an iron.
Some also suggest using a hairdryer to warm away the wrinkles or wipe down a wrinkly shirt with a damp towel.
