I often go to a location where there is no electricity. When I need to press my clothes, I have no idea of an alternative method. I also often face this problem in my city because of loadshedding. Please tell me if anyone knows some hacks to remove wrinkles from clothes.
I watched videos oh life hacks and one of them is you put clothes under the mattress and under the cushions of sofas. the weight of them will help to flatten the clothes and remove some wrinkles. A way for me to save is to use the free iron from the office and iron my shirts there. Saves me money in electricity.
another way is to spray a bit of water and then using a hair dryer on top of the water marks. This helps to remove wrinkles easily.
If you happen to have a way to heat a pot or pan, such as a wood stove or campfire, you could use this in leiu of a normal iron. As well, you could try using a small, portable vintage iron such as this one; they can be very cheap to obtain, and with care, will last a lifetime [many I have seen lasted several lifetimes]. Another option would be to dampen the area lightly, and add a flat, heavy weight to the wrinkled area for a while -- this can remove some wrinkles in my experience. Lastly, you could try dampening and hanging the clothes, although this will work well only for certain materials.
Wear the clothes for about half a day at home.
The small irregular movements of wearing the clothing will render most wrinkles pretty invisible. After that, you can wear them to the occasion where they should be wrinkle-free.
This won't look good enough where there is a need / expectation to remove every last wrinkle. But it will look ok where the only expectation is to "look ok".
