I hate ironing. It's seriously the worst chore.
When I was a college, we had teaching days, but also salon days where we had to wear white tunics and they had to be pristine. You could literally fail an assessment because a tutor thought you didn't look smart enough.
DIY Wrinkle Release Spray
- 1 clean empty spray bottle with a mist setting
- 2 cups warm water
- 1 tbsp white vinegar
- 1 tsp salon essentials smoothing conditioner
Mix together your warm water and until thoroughly blended. Stir in the vinegar and pour it into your bottle.
To use, gently mist the item (don't soak it - just dampen) and the stretch out the creases. If it's a heavier fabric you may need to lay it on a flat surface to apply some pressure. Lighter fabrics often just drop out with a slight pull.
You'll need to either lay it flat to dry, or keep the pressure lightly on whilst it's drying (I found a hand dryer in the bathroom sped things up!)
What's nice about this spray is that you can make it up in advance and it keeps really well (thanks to the essential oils in the conditioner) so you can have it in your handbag when you're travelling - much easier than bringing an iron!
