I have a confession to make; I hate to iron. I know my local dry cleaners will get my clothes pressed to perfection and why would I want to compete with that. I do not iron at home so there is no way that I am going to iron my clothes while I am on vacation. When I am packing I try to bring clothes that are wrinkle-free so that I do not have to worry.
However there are a few occasions when you may need to travel with dress clothes perhaps a business trip, a wedding, or even a night on the town. In last week’s post I shared my strategy for how to avoid wrinkles with good packing solution. Yet now you have arrived and the worst has happened….the dreaded wrinkles. UGH!
What is a girl to do?
My secret answer is simple and does not cost you anything. Take the dress clothes into the bathroom and hang them on a hook somewhere while you are in the shower so the wrinkles are naturally steamed out. I have on occasion been known to run the water a little longer if necessary. I realize of course this may not be the best solution environmentally but I am obsessive about minimizing unnecessary water usage at home; so 1-2 times a year to steam my clothes I think we are even.
In the event that this solution did not work there is always the hotel laundry service or the local dry cleaners down the street.
