I have to wear dress clothes all the time. Its unfortunate really but that also means I have to iron my dress shirts, my pants, etc etc etc. My only problem is that I hate ironing!! I'm no good at it...I get some wrinkles out but I'll also make more wrinkles. So to me, ironing feels like a waste of time. That's why when I heard of this magical stuff that makes wrinkles go away without ironing, I was incredibly happy. Actually, to be honest with you, I saved up a pile of my wrinkled dress clothes just so I could test this stuff out. For those of you who do enjoy ironing, there's a new product too that'll help things along.
Bounce has come out with the Bounce Ironing Spray ($2.99) which is a non-starch ironing agent that helps make ironing easier. Since its non-starch, it won't clog up the iron and won't leave flakes on your clothes. Now, the Downy Wrinkle Releaser ($3.99) is seriously awesome. Spray, tug a little and hang it up. Its as easy as 1-2-3.
So, take a look at the before/after pics. The green shirt was the one I ended up ironing with Bounce's Ironing Spray and to be honest, it did make it easier to iron. It was smoother and nicer. I tried doing one side of my dress shirt without the spray and found that I had to put in more effort and iron longer before it straightened out. The brown dress shirt is the one that I used Downy's Wrinkle Release on. It really was just simply spray and tug and the wrinkles "released". Not bad considering I only put about 30 seconds of tugging and pulling on it. I can see how this is going to be a regular for me! If you asked me to compare the difference between the two. I'm going to say, ironing does definitely make it crisper. However, if you're on the run and need a quick solution that'll work fast and efficiently, I'd take the Wrinkle Releaser.
