DIY: Wrinkle-Release Spray
Here is a wrinkle-release spray that you make in three parts. Do not worry, each part is pretty quick to make but the outcome is totally worth it.
Part 1 — Fabric Softener Crystals
Mix 1 Cup Epsom Salt with 10 drops of an essential oil of your choice. Place ingredients in a jar, top with lid and shake to combine.

Part 2 — Liquid Fabric Softener
Boil 2 cups distilled water — remove from heat (pour in large bowl, if necessary) — add 1/2 C fabric softener crystals (from above recipe) then add 6 cups white vinegar and slowly add 1 Cup baking soda, stirring constantly — Allow to cool
Part 3 — Wrinkle Release Spray
Mix 1 cup distilled water, 1 teaspoon liquid fabric softener (from recipe above) and 1 teaspoon triple distilled vodka or rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle
How to Use
To remove light and deep wrinkles, just:
1. Lay outside of fabric from 8 inches away with a sweeping motion, until just slightly damp (use more spray for heavy fabrics or severe wrinkles)
2. Tug and smooth away wrinkles
3. Hang dry
To reduce static cling, spray your garment lightly and evenly from about 6 to 10 inches away before wearing.
Got the Time? It’s Great for Ironing
While a wrinkle release spray can eliminate your need to iron, you also can get great results when you use it with your iron. Simply lightly spray fabrics while you iron for a smoothly pressed look.
