I have a confession to make.  A few Some Most of the clothes in my house are wrinkled.  Yep.  There. I said it.  I wash, dry, fold and put away….but here’s where the problem starts.  We have NO ROOM in our house.  Things are stuffed into drawers everywhere.  My two younger boys share a bedroom.  The older of the two has the dresser and the younger…he has a secondhand set of file cabinets for drawers.  Now before you go imagining a rusted metal cabinet on wheels these are oak and they are the kind used in legal offices.  They are very nice and deep and hey, the rest of the room is oak so they match.  The cabinet/drawers are huge but little guy loves his art supplies and the entire bottom drawer is filled with that so he only has the top drawer for clothes and they are jammed in there.  When he takes them out, he’s a wrinkly little guy.  The rest of us are wrinkly because we just don’t get rid of stuff.  No excuses.  Just packrats in a small house.

So now to this cool, cheap and super easy to make DIY.  I usually have a bottle of wrinkle release on hand but this particular day, I didn’t have any.  I remembered seeing a pin on Pinterest a while back and decided to give it a try.  I had nothing to lose.  It was so simple and it worked!  We even made a video so you could see how quickly it got down to business.
