Magic Wrinkle Eraser Spray with Fabric Softener

DIY Wrinkle Spray

When you are traveling or are in a hurry and have no time to iron out the creases in your pants or shirts, try this magic trick. Its a mixture of fabric softener and water that I call, the Magic Wrinkle Eraser Spray!

To Make:

To Use:

  • Lay the garment on a hard flat surface (floor, table, etc.)
  • Mist the garment
  • Use your hands to press out the wrinkles on the garment. Use friction to create heat for deeper wrinkles.
  • Let it dry and put it on! See isn’t it amazing?

It also works great to give it a quick mist and toss it in the dryer.

What are some ways that you have found to get rid of wrinkles in a time crunch?

  1. Hang your dress or shirt in the bathroom while you shower, the steam usually gets out most wrinkles, put on while still steamy and press and pull to smooth out.

  2. While hanging on a hangar, I sprau plain water lightly on them and brush my hands down the garment. More water for bad wrinkles. Only takes a sec, then I just leave it hang there until dry. The shower thing works too.

  3. I’ve done the diluted-softener trick for years. An alternate trick (for anything that is dryer-safe), even an entire load that you left in a basket to fold (towels, jeans, sheets, kids clothes, uniforms, husbands shirts, etc.), is instead of spraying individual garments, I take a washcloth or kitchen towel and dampen it well, sometimes with just water, sometimes with the softener mixture, and toss it in with the whole load and redry for 10-20 mins. You’re not really “drying” them, but allowing the steam from the dampened cloth to do the work. I guess this is the “steam-while-in-the-shower” method, only confined to the dryer and able to tackle many garments/items at one time! Second time around, though, GET THEM OUT OF THE DRYER, LAZY WOMAN, AND GET THEM HUNG OR FOLDED AND PUT AWAY!!! lol!!

    1. Haha, I can’t count how many times I have had to re-dry the wrinkles away for being a LAZY WOMAN too. Thanks for your comment!

  4. Febreze works too. I use the off brands that are only $1.00 and they work just as well. The fresh scent is a bonus, although it doesn’t stay very long.

  5. Thanks for the tip. I’ve spent sooooo much money on that Wrinkle Release spray, I could kick myself!

  6. Turn the shower on using hot water. When bathroom gets steamy, turn water off & hang garment hanger on shower rod. Close bathroom door & leave it shut for 10 min.

  7. I quit using liquid fabric softener in the washer because it was ruining my clothes with stains almost impossible to get out. Any advice?

    1. I’ve had this problem to, if your washer doesn’t have a slot for your fabric softener id buy a ball that’s made for fabric softener to be put in it. (They sell them down the fabric softener isle, I believe downy sells them.) You throw it into the wash and it opens and releases the softener at the right time so your clothes don’t get stained from it. Or you could just try putting it in the wash first while water is running and be sure it suds up real good before you throw your clothes in. Hope this helps 🙂

  8. Oh wow I didn’t know that this type of thing worked.

    If I’m super lazy and don’t have time to use an iron and the wrinkles are few I used my hair straighteners instead haha 🙂

  9. i quit using fabric sheets and liquid about a year ago. I now just fill the liquid fabric softener slot in my washer with white vinegar. It acts to cut the soap left behind during the rinse cycle and also acts as a fabric softener. My lint filter now does not get all petroleum gunned and my lint is reduced immensely. Clean smelling but not coated.
