So I decided to see if there was anything else I could do besides iron, and after a lot of research and experimentation, I found something that worked really well.
Best Wrinkle Spray Recipe
Now when my clothes come out of the dryer all wrinkled up, instead of heading straight for the ironing board (which is such a hassle), all I have to do is spray this wrinkle releaser on them and then hang them up in the closet. It’s so easy! And it works great too – no more wrinkles! Just make sure you shake your bottle before spraying each item with it though because the ingredients separate over time.
You can buy this product at the store, but it is very inexpensive and you get more for your money if you just make it yourself. I’ve also made sure that my wrinkle spray doesn’t include any harmful chemicals or ingredients that might irritate someone’s skin or cause an allergic reaction.

- Water (distilled, if you have hard water),
- Hair Conditioner
- 2 tbsp white vinegar
- 6 drops of Essential Oil for fragrance (optional)
- Spray bottle
How to make wrinkle releaser
- Fill a spray bottle with just enough water and 2 tbsp white vinegar to almost fill it.
- Add in 6 drops of therapeutic grade essential oil for fragrance, if you like.
- Add in the hair conditioner and shake to mix thoroughly.
How To Use:
Make sure your wrinkled garment is free of lint or debris first. Spray on your wrinkle spray liberally over the entire surface of the wrinkled area AND one inch around the outside perimeter.
Then take your garment by the shoulders (maybe holding it upside down by the skirt while you’re at it) and shake it to work out the wrinkles. Hang clothes on hangers immediately after spraying.
You can use this before you hang your clothes in the closet. It works best if you spray it on each item right before wearing it, but if you are pressed for time, simply get ahead of yourself and make a whole batch at one time.
As I said earlier though, make sure that your wrinkle releaser does not contain any harmful chemicals or ingredients that might irritate someone’s skin or cause an allergic reaction. Hair conditioner is a safer option than a fabric softener for this reason. And, remember to use essential oils and not fragrance oils.
Otherwise, you can use this spray in conjunction with my homemade linen spray to make your clothes smell great too.
Does wrinkle spray really work?
Yes, this really does work but it will depend on how wrinkled your clothes are. If you have a few wrinkles after removing your clothes from the dryer, this is the perfect solution. But, if you left the clothes wrinkled in a basket all night, you may actually need to take the iron out to remove all the wrinkles.
