Hack: How to Iron without an Iron

Staring down a pile of shirts waiting to be ironed? On holiday without an Iron? Don’t worry, check out our guide below

Steamy shower

Step into the shower. Hanging your freshly washed clothes in the bathroom while you’re running hot water (making sure the doors and windows of the bathroom are closed) can help to de-crease your shirts and get them looking great.

Tumble iron

Need pristine clothes with no ironing board in sight? Put your clothes in the tumble dryer. Even on a low heat, a dryer helps to smooth out creases – if they’re already dry, spray your clothes with water first to aid the process. If you don’t have a dryer, check out our other hack on how to quickly dry your clothes

Line dry the right way

If you chuck your clothes onto the line without much care, it’s unlikely you’ll be collecting pristine dresses and trousers once they’re dry. Smooth clothes out before you peg them, and try to hang them – taut, without stretching the fabric – in a position that preserves their shape. 

Emergency situation

If you want to de-crease clothes fast – and to iron without iron – a quick blast with a hairdryer and straightener can help to release folds and crumples. This works best with small and light items, and thin fabric.
