Perrie Samotin at weblog StyleCaster suggests ironing your clothes using a saucepan. Just fill your pot with a little water and wait for it to boil. Then use the flat bottom of the saucepan as your iron to press your pants and shirts. You can pour the water out before ironing if you’d like, but the added weight of the water might be helpful. Just be careful and make sure your saucepan has a good handle. You can even boil some pasta or some eggs while you’re at it and save some time and energy.

You can use a simple spray bottle to mist your clothing before ironing or just iron them when they’re still a little damp. There are a lot of ways to de-wrinkle your clothes without an iron, so find one that works best for you and continue living your glorious, iron-free life.
