Default How to unwrinkle clothes

So what is the best way to keep your clothes ironed or at least not to wrinkled. Can you take an iron or steamer to take the wrinkles out.

No irons are allowed because of fire hazard. I still bring my travel iron with me but haven't used it in the last few cruises. I use Downey Wrinkle Releaser found in the laundry department of WalMart or Target. We have also started just bringing my DH suit in our carry on and as soon as we are allowed to our cabins, put it in the laundry bag and give it to our steward for dry cleaning. Only $7, less than at home and it is delivered to our cabin the next afternoon in time for our first formal evening. You could also give them all your clean shirts for the week for pressing if you like. I think it's only $1.50 a shirt for pressing.

You can also pack you nice stuff in the plastic cleaner bags, help to not wrinkle and using a garment bag also helps.

We tried the plastic dry cleaner bags on our last cruise...they really worked! I brought Downy Wrinkle Release too..but nothing needed it!

Okay, how did you get the extra dry cleaner bags? Did you have to purchase them? We went to our local dc and they would not give us any extras.

save the dry cleaner's bags wire hangers when you get your clothes back from the cleaners, hang them in your garment bag. Hang your clothes up as soon as you get your suitcases delivered to your stateroom. If they are really badly wrinkled, most lines have self-service laundry rooms with irons. Steaming them in the shower works great also.
