If you hate ironing as much as I do, then you will love this easy hair hack to iron clothes with your hairdryer.
I think ironing would have to be one of my least favourite chores. I try and purchase clothes that don’t crease to remove the need to iron as much as possible from my life.
Also, to be honest, I have to confess that I am very lucky. My husband is incredible and irons my clothes when I need them. Only on rare occasions, I need to iron my own clothes and this weird use for your hairdryer is a great trick for at home or when you’re travelling.
I’ve made a video to show you exactly what I do.
Hair hack – How to iron clothes with your hairdryer
What you need:
- Water spray bottle
You can do this while you’re wearing the clothes or lay them flat out on a bed or table.
- Use your water spray bottle to spritz the clothes with a light mist of water. If you don’t have a water spray bottle that’s still OK. You can just flick a little bit of water at your clothes so that they are slightly damp. This helps to soften any stubborn creases.
- Then holding the clothes taut, use your hairdryer to smooth down and remove any creases from your clothes.
- This hack is fantastic for skirts or dresses that are difficult to iron and for delicate fabrics too. As when ironing clothes (or so I’ve been told), it’s a good idea to drop the heat for silk or delicate fabrics. For cotton clothes, like the top I’m wearing in my video, you can give them a blast on any heat.
In seconds you’re ready to go.
