Steaming Out the Wrinkles

I was walking through Lowe's the other day when I saw the fancy new dryers that have the ability to steam wrinkles out of your clothes. [LG Steam Washer & Dryer pictured.] They claim to take wrinkles out of your clothes, but cost a pretty penny. I can do the same thing without spending an-arm-and-a-leg on a dryer...

Take a clean washcloth and get it wet. Ring it out gently (you want it wet, just not dripping). Toss the washcloth and your wrinkled item into the dryer, turn it on the regular drying cycle (mine has a sensor dry that I like to use) and leave it in there for 10 minutes or so. The washcloth will steam out the wrinkles in your clothing. When it's done, you can put the washcloth back in the drawer. :) Hang the item up right away so it doesn't re-wrinkle while it cools.

I don't claim in any way that this process will remove all wrinkles from all fabrics, but it's a great way to freshen up your clothing during your shower in the morning - all without the time and effort of getting out the iron and ironing board.
