Dewrinkle Tip of the Day

If you have somewhat wrinkled pants or a reasonably wrinkled shirt (we're not talking something that's been crumpled up into a ball at the bottom of a laundry basket for a week) and you don't have time to iron them, mist them with water from a spray bottle and throw them in the dryer for a few minutes. If you don't have a spray bottle handy, take a tee shirt and dampen it in the sink and throw it in the dryer for a few minutes with the wrinkly garment. If it's a fabric that releases those creases nicely, you'll have something non-wrinkled to wear in minutes.

Steph - You are full of interesting crap. I'll remember this when I get a dryer. Should "de-wrinkle" be hyphenated? Only you and I care about such things. :)

...another way to fix those minor wrinkles if you're in a rush in the morning and can't put your shirt/pants/etc., in the dryer is to (if you're a girl, of course) take your flat iron and "iron" out the wrinkles. I promise; it works.:)

julie - i believe the standard is no hyphenation for most prefixes unless there is a double vowel situation (de-emphasize). :D not that i would be, you know, a grammar geek or anything...

Awesome tip Steph! I also heard a similar one once that says to bring the item in question into the bathroom with you, hang it up as you take a steamy hot shower.

I'm not sure if it works but its a great excuse to take a hotter than normal shower.
