Mum ‘ditches the iron’ for three-ingredient spray that gets rid of creases

Ironing is one of those chores that no one likes to do – it’s tedious and time-consuming.

But one mum has shared her secret recipe for a DIY spray that’s enabled her to “ditch her iron” forever.

Chantel Mila created what she calls her “wrinkle release” spray using just three ingredients, that most of us will already have in our kitchen cupboards.

Whether you’re running late and need to dash out the door or you’re on holiday and have a suitcase full of crinkled clothes – Chantel has you covered.

Sharing the hack to her Instagram under the username @mama_mila_au, she explained that all you’ll need is two cups of water, one tablespoon of white vinegar (which softens the clothes) and one tablespoon of hair conditioner (to relax clothes fibres).

She mixes all of the ingredients together in a spray bottle before she sprays it on the creased item.

Once applied, Chantel gently flattens the material before leaving it to hang for five minutes.

And in the time it takes you to shower, or to eat your cereal, the spray has worked its magic.

She shared a video demonstrating the hack to her 66,000 Instagram followers showing the before and after results.

In the caption, she wrote: “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.”

Since being shared, the hack has received more than 2,000 likes and 100 comments.

One person said they needed to try it out on their quilt cover.

Whilst another asked: “Amazing!! Do you leave that mixture in the bottle and just shake each time or start fresh?” to which Chantel replied: “I just leave it in there. The mixture lasts for about a month, but does need a little shake before use.”

“I am definitely trying this!” wrote a third.

And for those who hate vinegar, don’t worry.

Chantel says that the hair conditioner overpowers the vinegar smell.
