Wrinkled Clothing?
« on: October 23, 2008, 11:04:41 PM »
I’m using some fabrics this year on my dresses that I’m afraid might wrinkle when packed for camping. Does anyone know a good way to freshen the fabric and get the wrinkles out when electricity for irons isn’t available?

Downy Wrinkle releaser works quite well.

Thanks, mates. I'll give that a try.

An old school iron with hot coals will work too. I have been guilty of ironing my kilt with one. Just spray whatever it is with water for steam.

It really works.  Even my husband figured out how to use it!  :o

Just a warning - if you have any fragrance problems like I do, Downy Wrinkle Releaser may land you in a hospital bed instead of at Faire!  I can't even be within several feet of someone who has used it.  (Admittedly, I am hyper-sensitive to fragrances and chemicals.)

For those of you who choose to use it and don't know how you would live without it - did you know you can make your own?  Buy a cheap spray bottle fill it most of the way with water and add a couple of teaspoons/tablespoons of regular Downy fabric softener.  Spray clothes lightly, let dry, and you're good to go.  (Too bad I can't use that trick anymore.)
