Homemade Wrinkle ReleaserPosted: November 2, 2011
I have to iron all of my husbands shirts. I disdain this task. I’m really not that good at ironing. I used to buy Downy’s Wrinkle Releaser to help with quick touch-ups. My sister informed me that you could make your own! Here’s the recipe:
2 cups water (distilled is best, but I use tap water)
2/3 cup liquid fabric softener
A few drops of rubbing alcohol
Pour in spray bottle (I use my old Downy bottle) and shake well! Test on inconspicuous area of clothing before spraying entire garment.
Here is a roughly estimated cost break-down.
1 33.8 fluid ounce bottle of downy wrinkle releaser costs approximately $9.99 according to drugstore.com I used the cheapest fabric softener I could find, Cuddle Soft. I bought a 60 fluid oz bottle for UNDER five dollars in August. It’s now November. I still have a lot of it left. Believe me, I do a LOT of ironing and de-wrinkling. I love this money-saving recipe!
