How to Get Rid of Wrinkles in the Clothes Dryer

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

Step 1

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

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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

Step 4

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