Well, I mixed about a teaspoon of fabic softner with about 20 ounces of water. I sprayed my tees, and pulled them straight. I only recently washed them so it is still early to tell, but so far, they aren't wrinkled.

I tried the homemade anti-wrinkle stuff and it did its job! My tees did not wrinkle. I will be doing it again this weekend since it worked so well.

For those frugal folks, this would also be an excellant tip! Take 20 ounces of water and 1 teaspoon of your favorite fabric softener and pour it in a sprayer. Spray it on closes while they are still dry. Pull the wrinkles out of the clothing while they are still wet. They will dry without the wrinkles.

You must use a fabric softener and don't squeeze your clothes to let water out. What you must do is to hang your clothes directly on a hanger while it is still wet then hang it on your clothesline. Since you did not squeeze the clothes to drip the water out, the water will naturally move it's way from top to bottom without making any wrinkles. The best way to achieve this is with the help of the sun.

ksuzy1958, nailed it right on the head.

There are two ways to drastically reduce wrinkles when line-drying.

First method, place washables in the tumble dryer for a few minutes... longer for larger loads, then hang to dry.

Second method, remove washables from line while still slightly damp... place in tumble dryer to finish/complete the drying process.

One of my pet-peeves (wrinkle related) when my kids were little, was wrinkled diapers! Made for difficult folding!

Remedy for such... toss wrinkled diapers into tumble dryer for a minute or two with a damp towel! Wrinkles be gone!

DeBora, if you spray the mixture on when dry doesn't the softener wash out?
