I hate, hate, hate ironing...but I love, love, LOVE the blog Rocks in my Dryer.
I have read some stinkin' fantastic tips over there on Works for my Wednesday.
(Skip on over, browse through til you find something interesting and click on that link.)
So I finally came up with a tip I could share...on a Wednesday...when I actually remembered!
I bought the Big Shooter a Nice New Iron for Father's Day last year - and he loooooved it!
I do not like to iron. I will do anything to get out of it...blech! Soooo, a former bachelor friend of mine told me this little tid bit a few months ago...
Spray "Spray Starch" on the offending wrinkles then throw the garment in the dryer for a few minutes and Wa-La! No more wrinkles!
Now it is by no means pressed and starched. But, it serves it's purpose fabulously! Woo Hoo!
I do it all the time.
Do you have any little hints to pass on today?
P.S. I already put a Wordless Wednesday post up earlier with a Big Shooter Update on it for those of you who come to find out the scoop... sorry about my lackadaisical ways in that regard. Really. I mean it. He is always on my mind. (Ringing his little "I need something bell" may have something to do with that...I may take it from him. Just kidding. I would never take it. Misplace it maybe, but never take it...)

I've never tried using Spray Starch on the clothes I'm trying to de-wrinkle in the dryer. I have thrown a wet wash cloth in with my item and that seems to work pretty good too.

Thanks for sharing!

I am a pro at the wet wash cloth and wrinkled clothing in the dryer sort of ironing. I hadn't heard of using Spray Starch but then I don't think I'd heard of Spray Starch until I was pregnant for my daughter, about 4 years ago. My mom made me great maternity dresses from cotton. I actually ironed them and now do my daughter's cotton dresses. Sometimes I even iron her cotton shorts. I will have to try your idea out.

Great idea...will have to try that at some time since I very RARELY iron.

I love to iron (eyes rolling back in head just thinking about it), but I like to save up big batches so I feel productive when I iron.

Spray Starch huh? Never tried that... I have sprayed wrinkled items with Fabreeze tossed them in and it saves the day.

ps. I hate the iron too. My grandmother ironed everything even her pillow cases & sheets, but she was extraordinary.

I try to avoid ironing at all costs so this sounds like a great tip to me!

Thanks for stopping by. I thought the same thing when the idea about the prize board came to my mind. Duh, why hadn't I though of this sooner. Oh well, better late than never, right?!!
