When “Wrinkle Release” Doesn’t

We all know that I’m not a big fan of washing windows or dishes or clothes or…

Yeah, yeah.

When I bought the Rolls Royce and Cadillac (the washer and dryer) several years ago, I thought my days of ironing were over. They both have wrinkle preventers.

Riiiiiight. Sure they do. That’s why I see this:

The wrinkles, not the minion…

I would love to know what I’m doing wrong that keeps the washer from preventing wrinkles and the dryer from releasing them.


How hard is it to push those buttons and then pull out smooth clothing at the end of the cycle like they show in commercials?

That’s what I want.

I want the laundry to be wrinkle free.

I want it now.

Is that too much to ask?

I’ve even used the wrinkle release sprays as I hang up the shirts.

I don’t want to use another product. The dryer says, “Wrinkle Release” on the settings. It should say, “Wrinkle Crease.”

What do you do to decrease your chances of laundry wrinkles? Short of ironing, of course. πŸ˜€ Share your tips, please!

  1. Alas, my wife has me iron my own clothes. I too would LOVE a secret method on preventing those darned wrinkles. I’ve had *some* success if you shake/separate out the clothes before you put them in the dryer. It helps them not be plastered together. Of course you can always wash your clothes using the perm press cycle. That helps too. And.. just ignore the fact that I’m a male.

      A-ha! I’ll just get my husband to do all the ironing! Brilliant, Ryan!


  2. Have you tried hauling clothes out of the dryer as soon as the cycle finishes? … and wrinkles don’t last long on clothes while they’re being worn – body heat and all … the last wrinkle falls out just in time for the first drop of sauce to spill onto whatever you’re wearing.

      I have done that, too. It does help. I suppose if it mattered more to me, I’d be in the laundry room when that cycle ended, wouldn’t I? Sigh.

  3. It’s a trick, pure and simple. I would suggest you learn to embrace the wrinkles. Let’s face it, by the time humidity has had its way with our clothes…

    I promise, the world has not stopped spinning because our clothes are a, er, tad wrinkled. Grin

  4. One good thing about babysitting the grand babies is they don’t care if my clothes are wrinkled or not. I hate to iron anymore, but if we’re going somewhere special, I have no choice!

      LOL. We felt as if we really splurged when we bought those appliances. Isn’t that shirt great?!
