    Getting out wrinkles in dryer

    Just ran across this, thought it was worth a try!

    Put wrinkled clothes in dryer, turn on hottest setting and throw in a couple ice cubes. It will make steam in dryer and take out wrinkles!

    Neat idea, my dryer has a steam option. It is really nice.

    I've used fabric softener sheets and a wet wash cloth
    gotta try the ice cube trick.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I use the wet wash cloth method as well. My washer and freezer are on different floors!

    "Getting out wrinkles in dryer"...... My first thought, isn't this a rather uncomfortable and drastic method to deal with a life issue we all have??

    Silly me!!

    I have a water bottle on my shelf. I just spritz the dryer sheet. Toss back in and go.

    I take the wrinkles out of Hobbs tightly packaged batting by putting it unfolded in a dryer with damp towels.

    My sister's dryer automatically spritzes clothing thrown for a wrinkle release session. It caught me off guard as I had only planned to dry a shirt for a few minutes but then had to let it go for about 20 to get it dry again

    I keep 4 tennis balls in my dryer, dedicated to the dryer, no dogs allowed!! I have also used the damp washcloth.

    I usually use a damp towel, which works for me.

    I've never heard of doing any of those things. Thanks everybody. Those are really handy tips.
