How to Dry a Shirt Wrinkle Free


Leave a shirt in the dryer too long and the wrinkles actually set in, forcing you to start the entire de-wrinkling process over again. Let it sit unattended for any period of time and, again, it'll show creases. Drying a shirt---and having it emerge free of crinkles---doesn't have to be as complicated as it may seem. It should take only a couple of trial-and-error runs before you have the system figured out.

  • Place a couple of clean tennis balls or dryer balls inside the dryer with your shirt. Make sure the dryer isn't too full; this prevents clothes from circulating and allows wrinkles to set in.

  • Remove the shirt from the dryer while it's still just slightly damp. Grasp it by the shoulder seams and firmly shake it out.

  • Hang the shirt up immediately and use your hands to gently smooth out wrinkles. If a hanger is not available, lay the shirt flat, smooth any wrinkles out with your hands, then fold it neatly, smoothing it down as you go.

Tips & Warnings

  • Don't take the shirt out of the dryer too early; otherwise, you're left with a damp piece of clothing that may take hours to dry.
