Already wearing that wrinkled garment? No problem! This hack works even if you've already gotten dressed. Try it on thinner fabrics like silks, satins and thinner cottons. It's especially effective on areas that need a steamer, like ruched sleeves.

What you'll need:

  • Hair dryer
  • Wrinkled garment

What you'll do:

1. Toggle the setting to hot and the highest setting, and then turn the blow dryer on.

2. Pull the fabric taut from the bottom edge of your garment as you're wearing it to pull the wrinkle smooth.

3. With the nozzle facing your garment, direct the warm air to the crease. Be careful to not touch the hot nozzle to the fabric; the metal coils can singe the fabric.

 Your blow dryer can become a makeshift steamer when you're in a pinch. Anna De Souza

4. The key move after you've "ironed" out the creases is to make sure that you don't re-wrinkle the garment. Let the fabric cool before you throw on your jacket!

This will be especially helpful for areas that are difficult to iron, like ruched waistbands and statement sleeves.

We're thrilled to find out this method isn't full of hot air!
