Wrinkle release

Does this work for you? I roll my clothes and that definitely helps, but some things still get a bit wrinkled. I’ve never used this and before I buy “one more thing” (as we do carryon), I’d like to know if it really works,

It depends on the material. But they do work.

I have cotton/polyester blend and just use plain water in a small spray bottle. I do this the night before and the wrinkles seem to go away. Try it at home before you leave.

I do the same as Frank. Some kits of travel bottles have a small spray bottle and thats what I use. Easy to fill when you need it. I spray and then shake the garment out and the wrinkles hang out by the AM.

I agree it’s good to do a trial at home. If the wrinkles don’t fall out that garment is off the travel team! Has to sit in time out in the closet while it’s friends have fun, lol!!

Downey Wrinkle Release spray works like a charm on almost anything I have tried, quickly with almost zero wait time. I always carry a travel size bottle with me on all trips, and use it at home as well. Quicker and easier than having to bring out the iron. You can fill your own spray bottle or buy a travel size bottle on Amazon, (Kinda hard to find the travel size Downey bottles in the stores).

My sister used the hair dryer on her wrinkles and it worked pretty well.

Ok, I will roll my clothes for a day, then give a try. Didn’t think of doing it the night before,,,duh! I like the blowdryer tip, too. Thanks!

Lulu, I don't use wrinkle release mainly because of the scent. Like others here I take a small empty spray bottle and just use water. If that isn't enough I also use a hair dryer or hotel iron.

You might want to try wrinkle release at home and see if you like the odor.

Good point from cj-traveler. I’m pretty sure that’s why I changed to water. The Downy is way too perfume-y for me!!

I was all excited but stopped reading when I realized this was about clothes.

I give my clothes a wrinkle test—keep them rolled in the packing cube for a week—and see how they do. If they get too wrinkled, I don’t take them. These shirts from REI did great on my trip to Switzerland:

I also just got these shirts from royal robin. I folded them in the packing cube and no wrinkles.

We pack the clothes in layers with plastic bags from the dry cleaners in between. They remain remarkably wrinkle free.

I am very scent sensitive and the Wrinkle release was too strong for me. It would not be my perfume of choice. I also did not find it any better than water and blow dryer.

I’ll try the water and hair dryer the night before, too. I’d prefer something without a scent.

Well, I tried both on both sides of 2 dresses. The water and blower dryer did the best. That’s one liquid Carryon I can leave at home now.
