In your opinion which "wrinkle release" type product works the best.. Downey, Faultless or the brand that is sold on some of the travel store sites (not sure of the name). Does any of it work on cotton?

Re: Wrinkles
Downey Wrinkle Releaser works great and is probably the least expensive. I have used it on all types of materials but you should use it a few hours before you plan on wearing the item because it will be wet. I try and use it as I unpack the first day. I have found it in the laundry dept of Target and WalMart.

Re: Wrinkles
I prefer Faultless as it's an aerosol spray rather than a pump (finer mist). It is also sold in a travel size can. Works great on cotton, just cannot be used on silk.

Re: Wrinkles
They don't work at all - every night I spray that stuff on and every morning I look in the mirror and the wrinkles are still there - better get back to my Avon Lady soon lol. I actually found the stuff works ok - but I didn't care for the smell it left on clothes. TTFN Jennifer

Re: Wrinkles
I'm not sure if there is a Dollar General store where you live but I use their brand of wrinkle release. It costs $1.50 for 33 ounces and it is the cheapest I have found and works very well.

Re: Wrinkles
Pack your individual blouses and dresses in dry cleaning bags...very few, if any wrinkles!

Re: Wrinkles
why not bring a hand held clothes steamer? they work great and are safe on ships.
Got one at walmat for $30.00 love it.

Re: Wrinkles
I was told that you couldn't bring an iron onto the ship because of the potential fire hazard. Anyone know if this is true?

Re: Wrinkles
Yes it's true. Carnival offers self service laundry on their ships but RCI does not.

Re: Wrinkles
irons are not allowed, but hand held clothes steamers are ok. bring mine all the time.

Re: Wrinkles
Youre not supposed to have a steamer either, but I did bring one until I discovered Downy Wrinkle Release. Works great, unless you like the really neat pressed look. I never noticed the smell once it dried.

Re: Wrinkles
hang your outfit in the shower and turn on the hot water, the steam from the shower works just as well as the steamer and the de-wrinkle products. If

Tip I learned on my cruise last week was. If you need the clothing right away spray wrinkle releaser on and use your hair dryer to speed up drying. Plus the heat from the hair dryer while pulling on the wrinkle helps alot.
