How To Iron Clothes With A Hair Straightener

.

We'd be lying if we said we never stepped out of the house with a wrinkled shirt because our clothes iron was broken (and, trust us, it was not cute). But there's no need to walk around looking so tousled, so long as you've got a hair straightener handy; This tool can be used as a make-shift steamer to help you straighten out your clothes. And guess what? It actually works.

First, make sure the hair straightener's plates are clean and the garment is iron-safe. If the plates need to be cleaned, do so when the tool is cool using a wet cloth. If the fabric is more delicate, set the flat iron on a lower setting period. If it's a thicker material, set it to high. Then, carefully place the item between the plates and run the straightener over the wrinkles until they have smoothed.
