How to Iron Without an Iron
I'm pretty sure my kids won't know what an iron is until they're interviewing for their first job. We live in a house where I. Do. Not. Iron. Make me clean every toilet in town, but please don't make me deal with a hot steel weapon and its gangly, unruly board-friend.
But there are days when you forget about the laundry in the dryer, and your favorite shirt looks like it's been through Wrinkle Wars. And lost. What's a girl to do?
Here's how you iron without an iron.
Do you have water and a hairdryer? Then you're set. Simply wet the offending area. Don't submerge it; just generously slap water on with your hand until damp. Then stretch and flatten as you blow-dry. Be careful not to get greedy and get the end of your hairdryer too close to the fabric; you'll blow a fuse that way. Don't ask me how I know this. Depending on the fabric and wrinkle intensity, the process shouldn't take more than 2-5 minutes. That's a Hulu commercial break; piece of cake.
You won't win any points from Helga Housecleaning with this one, but you won't look like you just walked out of a bar fight either. I'd call that a win.
