Got a rayon, silk, or otherwise delicate garment that can’t take ironing but gets seriously wrinkled? A sheet of aluminium foil can help straighten out, and do a few other neat tricks. Grab your tube of foil, set up the ironing board, and set up an indirect ironing station:
To get wrinkles out of silk, wool, and rayon clothes that can’t take direct heat, place a piece of foil on your ironing board, then lay the garment flat over it. With the steam button down, pass the iron three to four inches over the fabric several times. Wet heat radiating from the foil helps smooth out wrinkles.
Beyond ironing, Real Simple points out that the thin shiny stuff can also reduce TV interference and scrub the heck out of glassware. Hit the link below for more clever uses of a pretty great material. Photo by tanakawho.
