Cooks commonly use vinegar when preparing food. Vinegar is made from alcohol but goes through a fermentation process. It is then diluted with water to make it suitable for cooking. Vinegar has many other uses aside from food preparation. It is also effective before, during and after laundering clothes. Clothing often comes out of the dryer with wrinkles and vinegar helps to quickly eliminate them.

Mix one part vinegar and three parts water in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on the wrinkles and hang the item up to dry. Most, if not all, of the wrinkles will fall out.


Iron the item after spraying with vinegar mixture to eliminate sharp creases and wrinkles that are hard to smooth.


Add 1/4 cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle. This reduces the amount of wrinkles present after washing.
