Ironing is not one of the favorite household chores *.

But the shirts and blouses should always be wrinkle-free, especially for important occasions.

But if you have absolutely no desire for an ironing board and iron, the following tips might be quite good for you.

Iron without an iron with steam

  • Iron-free in the shower

    : This step can even cover two steps in one.

    Because during the hot shower in the morning, you can simultaneously let the wrinkles "steam away" from the blouse.

    To do this, hang the top on a hanger and position it so that it gets enough steam but does not get wet.

    This will smooth out the wrinkles in just a few minutes.

  • Tips for the tumble dryer

    : According to

    brigitte.de,

    the tumble dryer (promotional link) can also

    contribute to crease-free laundry without ironing.

    The steam in the dryer is created when a small handful of ice cubes is added to the laundry.

    At medium heat, the ice cubes slowly melt and, in combination with the heat, generate the necessary steam.

    If you take the laundry out again after about 16 minutes, it will be hung up directly and will remain crease-free.

  • Steam in the kitchen

    : There is also a helper in the kitchen whose steam ensures wrinkle-free clothing.

    We're talking about the kettle.

    To do this, hold the item of clothing over the steam and brush the area to be smoothed again without creasing.
