Use Ice Cubes And Your Dryer To Steam Out Wrinkles

Use Ice Cubes And Your Dryer To Steam Out Wrinkles

If you’re too busy to iron, but you need a shirt or pair of pants smooth and wrinkle-free, this time-saving tip can help. Toss a couple of ice cubes into the clothes dryer with your wrinkled clothes. Run it on its hottest setting. It’s strange, but it works.

This trick works best if you have a couple of shirts, or maybe a shirt and a pair of pants. Throw in jeans, heavy fabrics, or too many clothes and it won’t work. As you run the dryer, the ice cubes (you only need one or two) melt to water which eventually gets hot enough to become steam. That steam — along with the hot temperatures — smooth out the wrinkles. It’s like the shower trick and the dryer trick all rolled into one.

Hit the link below to see a few photos of the tip. It’s simple, and in the right circumstances, it can free you up to do other things while your wrinkly clothes take care of themselves. If this doesn’t appeal (many of us don’t use a dryer anyway), check our our other tips to avoid ironing.
