Wrinked clothes are sexy!!!! It is the cruise look!

Seriously, there is a self-service laundromat on most of the cabin decks. In these laundromats is an iron and ironing board. On formal night if you wait too late there will be a few people waiting to use it.

You can, if you want, send your clothes out to have the ship's staff press them but there is a cost to that unless you are a platinum member or are in a suite. (I believe??)

I have used Downey Wrinkle Release and was amazed at the results! Try it at home and see how effective it is! And I don't own stock in the product!

Laundry rooms [each with irons] are opposite:
1359
2367
6387
7339
8351
9270

[No "travel irons" alllowed. Along with the Wrinkle Releaser, you can bring a steamer/turn on the shower's hot water on full blast/let the steam build. That will take about 30 seconds. Hang washable clothes in there that have wrinkles]

HSN sell a steamer by Joy Magnano (sp). It is awesome. I hardly ever use my iron any more. Who need to set up an ironing board and all when this is soooo easy.

I got my little steamer for less than $10 at WalMart. Works fine, especially if you let things hang in the steamy bath first. The wrinkle spray is good too but I prefer not to pack any more liquids than necessary these days.

We take a small squirt bottle. Fill it with water, mist your clothes, then shake a few times to get the wrinkles out. Works best if you can plan ahead on what to wear (so you can let the clothes dry before wearing). Works like a charm and is a cheap alternative that doesn't take up much space in your luggage.

I agree with Darlene, the Downy Wrinkle Releaser works like a miracle and you can purchase it in a travel size container.

Downey Wrinkle Release for T-shirts, jeans, etc. works great!!!
Don't use it on silk.

We also bring a steam iron for stuff that I don't think is safe for the Downey Wrinkle Release.

Also, if you pack hanging clothes in drycleaning bags, they tend to wrinkle less. That seems to work well for us.

Steamers are allowed but no irons. I am not sure what the cabin attendants do if they find an iron in someone's cabin.

Anyone ever experienced this?
