Guide Review - Downy Wrinkle Releaser - About.com Laundry Product Review

Downy Wrinkle Releaser is one of the many offerings from OneCARE Co. that is designed to make our laundry chores a bit easier. It can be used to remove wrinkles from most fabrics, reduce static cling and even during ironing to help the iron glide easily over fabrics.

Downy Wrinkle Releaser comes with the fresh scent of Downy fabric softener. The 16.9 oz. bottle comes with a handy trigger spray. While it is safe on most fabrics, it can cause water spotting on silk or rayon. Always test in a hidden area before using over the entire garment. I like to turn the clothes inside out before spraying.

Wrinkled clothes should be sprayed from about eight inches away. Then tug and smooth away any wrinkles. For heavy wrinkles, you may need to apply again. Then hang your garment and allow it to air dry. You will have greater success by allowing the garment to dry completely before wearing. Wearing a damp garment can actually add more and deeper wrinkles.

Listed ingredients are:

  • Fiber relaxers
  • Water
  • Quality Control Agents
  • Perfume

    I gave Downy Wrinkle Releaser a try on both natural fiber clothes and synthetic fibers. I was very pleased with the results. Deep wrinkles relaxed and static cling was gone. The clothes don't look freshly pressed but they look much better than before the spray down. NOTE: Downy Wrinkle Releaser does not remove facial wrinkles no matter how many times you spray!
