How to spend less time ironing

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who love to iron their clothes, and the rest of us. But by using Downy, and these helpful tips, you’ll be a steaming, pleating, wrinkle-free ironing machine.

Better ironing starts in the washer

That’s right—wrinkle-free clothes start in the washer. Reduce wrinkles by using Downy Liquid Fabric Condition, which helps lubricate fibers, keeping them smooth. Upgrade your wrinkle-fighting tactics with Downy Wrinkleguard Fabric Conditioner. WrinkleGuard contains a patented and revolutionary technology that penetrates deep into and around fabric fibers to improve flexibility and relax fibers to help prevent those in-wear wrinkles (caused by things like sitting and walking) from forming in the first place."

Remove wet clothes ASAP

Once the washer is finished, promptly remove your clothes, and shake them out before placing them in the dryer. The fewer wrinkles going in, the fewer coming out—which means less ironing for you.

Minimize wrinkles in the dryer

If you’re still troubled by wrinkle-prone fabrics, try drying them on the lowest heat setting. Also, make sure to remove your clothes as soon as the dryer is finished so all your hard work reducing wrinkles isn’t wasted. Again, the less wrinkled your clothes are coming out of the dryer, the less time you have to spend ironing. Use WrinkleGuard Dryer Sheets to keep your clothes wrinkle free in the dryer.

Is your dryer running?

There’s nothing worse than suddenly realizing the dryer finished hours ago. That’s why you need to perfect the art of catching the dryer as soon as it’s done. Stick close to the laundry room so you can hear the dryer chime. Or set a phone alarm to remind you that clothes are in the dryer.

But my wrinkly clothes are already clean!

Don’t fret if your clean clothes are wrinkled and you don’t have time to wash them again. You can make ironing easier by tossing the wrinkly items, along with a damp hand towel, into the dryer on the lowest heat setting. Follow these tips and use Downy so your ironing is done in no time, leaving you more free time to be wrinkle-free.
