DIY Wrinkle Remover for Clothes

I love this shirt! - the color, the style, fit. Everything pretty much, except 1 thing: wrinkles. 

I have renamed this shirt "the wrinkle factory." When I bought it if I had any clue  to the fact that this shirt needed ironing, I would have ran for the hill. I.HATE.IRONING. Period. Maybe I haven't figured out the proper way to iron but I always seem to iron more wrinkles into the shirt than out. It doesn't make sense. I have no idea why. I've even been shown how to iron properly, I just can't seem to get it to work. 

The other day I was getting ready for work and really wanted to wear this shirt but I really didn't want to iron even more so I skipped it and went with a different outfit. I didn't like that outfit so I switched.  The same cycle continued until I had circled back around to "wrinkle factory". The dread. Ugh. I was just about to break out the iron when a light bulb went off. I actually had a vision of a commercial I had seen many years ago advertising wrinkle release spray. Then I though --Hello?! Why can't I just made some. 

I didn't have the time to search Pinterest for a recipe but I figured most spray was fancied up water anyway. So water it was - minus all the fancy and guess what!? It worked.  Water. That's it! 

In this case, I only had a mini mister bottle that I use for scrapbooking but it worked perfectly and provided just enough moisture to get the wrinkles out. All I did was lightly mist the shirt then rub the wrinkles out.

I know I probably can't avoid the iron all the time but I'm glad I found this solution for when I am in a bind and need a quick fix.
