  • Well, I think that everyone is just not understanding why you don't just go get a cheap iron for $10 or less. Why not? Once you do one of these projects, you will want to do more. And how do you get stubborn wrinkles out of your clothes? Do you just wear them looking all sloppy? Just go buy an iron.

  • To answer your question.....I would think that would work.

    P.S. I don't own an iron either

  • i would buy an iron. i just did 5 ironons for onsies for my friend, and the home iron barely transferred then - they dont get hot enough to do it easily. so a teapot might work for wrinkles but i dont think it will for the transfer.

  • I got rid of my iron years ago! I just dampen the item with a spray bottle & put in in the Dryer with a towel & all the wrinkles are gone:) I use the bottom of my small fry pan (its stainless steel) when I'm desperate though.
