Ironing is one of our LEAST favourite household chores. If there’s a quicker way to do it, we’re all for it! Here’s an awesome tip tip try from an Instagram mom.

Ditch the iron with just THREE ingredients!

Chantel Mila, mother and wife, has created a secret recipe for a DIY spray that allows her to skip the mind-numbing chore that is ironing.

Chantel calls her secret creation “wrinkle release”, and it consists of just three common household ingredients that most people may already have in their kitchen cupboards, mixed all together in a spry bottle.

The mommy took to her Instagram page to share her her cool creation with her 62 000 followers, and her DIY post was captioned “Guys, I’m so excited to share this one, because I’ve been working on a formula for a while.”

“This spray is so great for travel or for those hectic mornings when you’re rushing out of the house! Simply spray a light mist, smooth and leave for 5 mins (while you shower and get ready) and voila – no more creases! I’ve tried it on both light and dark cotton-blend clothes, and it’s worked so well for us. My husband is now a convert. Patch test before trying it at home. Hope this is helpful. tag a friend who needs this xx”


In the post she shares a before picture of the wrinkled shirt, and proceeds to explain what needs to be done in order to get the desired outcome.

What you need instead of your iron:

  • A spray bottle
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of hair conditioner

Chantel then sprays the wrinkled and creased shirt and says to gently flatten the shirt out, and then hang the shirt up and wait for 5 minutes until the shirt is completely dry.

At the end of the video, Chantel shows us the outcome of her DIY trick, and the shirt has completely been straightened out.

Since Chantel posted her DIY video on Instagram, it has received more than 2000 likes, and 100 comments.

Chantel’s followers were very pleased with her DIY hack, some leaving comments about how they cannot wait to try it, and how they cannot believe that it actually works.
