Here is how to get the flattest lapel in town; it is better than using an iron. Take your shirt out of the dryer and hang up on a hanger damp or if it's already dry apply a mist of water to the edge you are looking to press.


Cut a piece of cardboard into a 6" x 6" square and score right down the middle of the cardboard but not completely through so that it can be folded over into a 3" x 6" piece.

Lay piece of cardboard under the edge of fabric you're looking to press. Then fold the piece of cardboard over the edge as if you were grabbing the edge with the cardboard. Secure the cardboard with two clothespins.

Do this to each side and after a couple hours remove the cardboard and you will not believe the flat crisp edge you have with no need to iron!

Don't have an iron? Use your curling iron to straighten your hems. After curling your hair, simply run the curling iron along the hems of your cotton or cotton-blend clothes. This works best for jean skirts that roll, but can be used for many other pieces of clothing as well, including collars that bend.

If you're afraid the curling iron may melt your garment, use the blow dryer instead. Simply spray lightly with water, pull garment taut and blow the fabric dry.

We all have tossed away "fabric softener" sheets; but if you have clothing coming out of the dryer wrinkled or have clothing that is wrinkled coming off of a hanger, wet one of the fabric sheets that you were going to toss away and let the dryer run for 5 minutes. No more wrinkles and a hint of fresh scent remains.
