Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Goodbye to Ironing!

Iron No More!

Irons are practically banned in my house. My husband is allowed to use one on rare occasions, but not I. I hate ironing. It's a waste of a perfectly good nap-time and it is impossibly dangerous to try ironing when young children are afoot. A solution to the problem is here! Read on.

The next time you have a few wrinkles to tackle, leave the iron on the shelf and put your dryer to use!

Step 1: Dampen fuzz-free cloth or lightly spray wrinkled clothes with water only
Step 2: Toss cloth and wrinkled clothes into dryer (max 5 lightweight garments or 2 heavier garments)
Step 3: Dry on high heat for 10 minutes
Step 4: Remove from dryer immediately!
Step 5: Dress or hang promptly

Just think of all the things you can accomplish while your dryer does the ironing for you!

  1. Great tip! I have ironing too. And so does Gadget Guy. I'd rather wash and re dry everything that pull out the iron.

  2. Love that tip!! Need to use it often too - hubby does most of the laundry in our house and almost everything ends up super wrinkled. I am grateful he helps out though. :)

  3. Great tip! I hate the iron just as much as you do!
