Imagine having truly wrinkle-free clothes without ironing. Sure, “wrinkle-free clothes” may be the next best thing to have, but there are a few techniques you can use to straighten your clothes without lugging out your ironing board. Here’s our favorite ways to remove wrinkles out of clothes that may have you wondering why you have an iron in the first place.
1. Use a Flat Iron Hair Straightener
Well, you may argue that they are still irons – straighteners work because they have flat plates that get hot and add pressure to your clothes, very much like what an iron does. You won’t need a full-size hair straightener for this – a small one like the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Mini will do great!
It’s perfect for small touch-ups and hard-to-iron areas such as shirt collar and between buttons. Remember not to hold it down in an area for too long, and make sure the flat iron does not have hair products on it, or it may burn your clothes.
2. Use your shower steam
Hang your clothes on your towel rack or shower rod while showering. The steam will flatten out most creases. Make sure the bathroom door is properly closed, so steam can’t escape. It should take more than 15 minutes for the steam to work its magic.
3. Use a garment steamer
