Works for Me Wednesday (ironing made EASY!)

Let's talk about getting wrinkles out of your clothing....FUN HUH???
AND NO, we are not going to toss everything in the dryer. GOSH WHO DOES THAT?
ahem......surely not me :wink:
Grab your iron (if you can find it) and then grab some aluminum foil from your cabinet.


Now go find that wrinkly white shirt that refuses to stay wrinkle-free. *you know the one.
Place the aluminum foil under your ironing board pad, place the shirt on the board and start ironing.

The foil will reflect heat so you're actually ironing from both sides at once.
VOILA....Saves time and energy too!!

OR you can just take that same shirt and throw it in the dryer for a few minutes.
Hardy Har Har!

Well, I hate ironing and never feel too successful at it, so perhaps this is just the tip I need! Thank you!

I'm definitely going to try this. Yesterday, I was ironing some scrap fabric to make cloth napkins, and getting frustrated that I just couldn't get all the wrinkles out. This is a great tip!

The last time we were in a hotel room my 6 year old asked what the iron was. I said, "that's an iron"... he said, is it in case of an emergency... I replied, "yeah, I guess it is!" Thanks for sharing. If I EVER do get the iron out, I will try to remember that. ;)
