Guide Review - Laundry Aid

Step 1...spray. Step 2...tug and smooth wrinkles. Step 3...hang to dry. This simple three step process left me hopeful that I had found the magic solution to my most hated chore.

What I found out is that the wrinkle releaser is almost magic for minorly wrinkled items. I could take clothing in the closet that had been pressed too closely together and smooth it very easily with just a little effort.

My more heavily wrinkled items needed a little more attention. I found that by spraying clothing and then tumble drying on low, most could be made wrinkle free without ironing.

For my family's really nice clothes, the wrinkle releaser needed to be utilized as an ironing tool. Lightly spraying the clothing during ironing gave a nice freshly pressed look without the overbearing chemical scent of some of the other starches, sizers, and releasers. Overall the product does what it claims to do and can be a big saver in a time crunch.
