    So I'm in Germany and can't get my favorite no iron spray for post dryer wrinkles and I found this recipe on the Web. I report that it works like a champ and costs a fraction of the price of what I was using.

    2 1/2 cups distilled water
    1 teaspoon Downy fabric softener

    Mix and put in a spray bottle. Spritz on dh's long sleeve, cotton shirt and it looks like you ironed it. (Okay, so you have to swipe down the shirt and the sleeves with your hands but it beats ironing any day!)

    Whaaa whooo. 'even spritzing the three-year-old's stuff now. I do admit that I have to do it the night before they wear it but it's fabuloso!

    Sounds like a good idea. Bet it would work if you sprayed it and then put it in the dryer for a few minutes. That's what my girls always do to get wrinkles out -

    Thanks for the recipe. Can't believe a military man would wear a shirt that had not been ironed. I remember when hubby was in army when I first married, I had been ironing at home for years, but I could never iron his stuff good enough for him.

    I prayed that neither of my Navy spouses wanted me to do it. I took their shirts to the base laundry and their pants and blouses(jackets) to the drycleaner. I never could get the creases in the shirts correct!

    Well, that is true, ladies. The military man has different requirements. I do take all of his uniforms and AF shirts to the dry cleaners for heavy starch but I'm slowly getting away with the spray deal on some things and the boys' things for sure. I can't iron the military things right either.

    I forgot to say that when I saw the title of the post on the left, I thought it was going to be a layout with a burned iron mark on a shirt or something!

    Thanks for this Laura! My DH's uncle was actually one of the inventor's of the no-iron spray (he passed away recently), but I've never tried it.

    My Dad was military and I was the officially "ironer", as he called me. I think one of the things that attracted my DH to me was my military creases!

    Laura, isn't it one of the 10 commandments. Thou shalt not iron. I'm sure I've read that in my Bible somewhere.

    Well, it's a perfect product but I can't get it over here so I must make do. I hope your DH's uncle made a killing on it because it's awesome.
