Make Your Own Wrinkle Releaser – Unleash Smoothness with DIY Tips

This post is part of my Organize Pretty Series!

The only thing I hate more than ironing is wrinkles. Introducing homemade wrinkle releaser. You’ve seen it in the store, maybe even bought it a time or two. But let’s face it, it’s kinda spendy. And now, no need, you can make your own for super cheap! Thank me later!

What you need:

Simple enough.

What you do:

Fill your spray bottle with bottled water, and leave room at the top for 2 tbs of fabric softener and 2 tbs of isopropyl alcohol. Now the ratios will actually depend on the amount of water you use. Shake and spray!

Rule of thumb: 1 tbs per 16 oz of water.

PS I once was told that the phrase “rule of thumb” originated from the rule that back in the day, a man wasn’t allowed to hit his wife with a stick thicker than his thumb. Not true, I looked it up.

See! This is one of my fave shirts. Chambray is so in, and so wrinkly.


PS “Rule of thumb” comes from carpenters. They used to used their thumbs to measure. Not The Carpenters (why do birds suddenly appear), but wood workers.


Now it’s just the perfect amount of unwrinkled. I don’t want to look perfectly pressed. 🙂

There you have it. Go forth and unwrinkle. No iron necessary!

PS: I used an empty Method cleaning solution bottle. I love that the labels come off so cleanly. Reduce, reuse, recycle. And I added this cute chalkboard vinyl label and a bistro marker to make it real cute.
