How to Iron without iron

There is absolutely no doubt owning an iron is a huge benefit, making your life a whole lot easier when it comes to ironing out creases and wrinkles in your fabrics. However, did you know that you can actually achieve this without using an iron?

Sometimes life may surprise you with an emergency – your iron might get broken, or perhaps you are traveling and staying somewhere that doesn’t have an iron. These situations are common, and it makes life a whole lot easier if you know how to iron without iron.

So, let me teach you how to iron your clothes and fabrics without an iron!

Master the Art of Ironing without an Iron with These Simple Hacks:

By following these steps, you will become an expert at ironing your fabrics without actually having to use an iron.

Remove Wrinkles in a Dryer

There are a few ways in which your dryer would help you remove the wrinkles from your clothes:

1. First is the steam cycle present in the latest dryers. It smooths out all the wrinkles as you start the toss.

2.  Another hack is with the ice cubes. Throw the cubes with your clothes in the dryer, and let them melt with the toss at high heat. The generation of steam will relieve your clothes of wrinkles.

3. Even if you are short of ice cubes, just dampen the clothes or spray the wrinkled parts with cold water.

Give Your Clothes a Steamy Bath

Who’d of thought that a nice, hot bath could perfectly iron your clothes? Follow these steps:

1. Hang your clothes in any corner of your bathroom.

2. Shut the windows and the doors and turn on the shower.

3. Keep your shower in a warm setting.

4. Now take the steamy bath and let the steam do its work.

5. As you would turn off the shower, you would see your straightened clothes free of any wrinkles.

Get Your Hair Straightener

Your hair straightener can work miraculously on your clothes, especially the collars of your shirts! Try the following:

1. Keep your straightener at the medium to low setting and wait for it to heat up.

2. Remember you have to use it exactly like the way you straighten your hair – with caution.

3. Spray the wrinkled parts of your collars and start running the straightener once heated.

4. Begin to iron with the straightener until you have removed all the creases.

Buy Yourself a Steamer

If you are here because you simply do not have an iron, nor intend on getting one, then a handheld steamer might be the thing you are looking for.

1. Handheld steamers are considered the cutting-edge and most effective device to remove creases and wrinkles.

2. They heat up quickly and work on every type of clothing and fabric.

3. They work very well even in those expensive dresses which are covered in accessories and impossible to iron.

4. All you need to do is hang your clothes and begin the steaming process.

Make a Vinegar Spray

Vinegar is one of the best-kept secrets when it comes to de-wrinkling your clothes. You can purchase white vinegar from the supermarket and make your own by following these steps:

1. Take a spray bottle and add a cup of vinegar to it.

2. Now make a solution with the addition of distilled water.

3. Shake it well to blend the water and vinegar.

4. Spray it on the wrinkled parts of your clothes and straighten it with your hands to achieve the best results.

Get the Blow Dryer

Utilizing your hair dryer to remove the wrinkles from the clothes is another effective hack. Just follow these steps to see the magic of a hair dryer:

1. First, dampen all the wrinkled parts of your clothes.

2. Turn your hair dryer on at the highest heat.

3. Start to blow dry the wrinkles, but keep the dryer a few inches away from the fabric.

4. The hot air from your dryer will iron out your creases with relative ease.

Use a Kettle

This is actually the oldest trick in the book, but still works brilliantly today!

1. Make sure the kettle you have chosen is clean.

2. Now boil the water until it begins to steam.

3. Direct the steam coming out of the kettle at your clothes from a distance of a couple of inches.

4.  Steam all the wrinkled parts, straighten them with your hands, and see the results!

Let Nature do the Ironing

It is pretty simple, but take advantage of a hot summer’s day, ideally with a slight breeze! Follow these steps to iron your clothes using the weather:

1. Hang your clothes up either in your garden or next to a window that gets direct sunlight for most of the day.

2. Spray with water all the creased parts of your clothes.

3. Now wait for nature to do its thing!
