If you have a garment or piece of fabric that is ridden with wrinkles but you don't have an ironing board, you can use your clothes dryer to get rid of the wrinkles. When a wet item is placed in the dryer with the wrinkled garment, the dryer acts as a steamer and the wrinkles will smooth themselves out pretty quickly. The technique, while simple, is extremely effective in getting rid of wrinkles.

Things You'll Need

  • Wash cloth
  • Dryer sheet
  • Hanger

Saturate a wash cloth in water, then wring it out until excess dripping has ceased.

Toss the wet rag into your clothes dryer along with the garment from which you wish to remove wrinkles. Place a dryer sheet inside as well.

Let the dryer run on "High" for 20 minutes.

Remove the garment and immediately place it on a hanger to cool.
