Laundry question

My dh is very tall. We try not to by tall clothes for him because they cost alot more. So he just buys x-large shirts and I hang them up to air dry. They are always wrinkled. My question is if I throw them in the dryer for about 10 minutes to get wrinkles out, will they draw up any? I really hate ironing.

  • Spray them with wrinkle release and you don't have to use the dryer. Another alternative would be to throw a damp washcloth in the dryer with the shirt and put your dryer on a fluff dry setting.

  • I have 2 sons and a husband that all wear dress shirts and the Downy Wrinkle Releaser is a God send no matter if you air dry or use a dryer !

  • I would think that as long as you pull them out and they are still damp, you would be okay.

  • @scout mom- I never have used a wrinkle release. Can you get it at any store?

  • Yeah, I only airdry my shirts too because I don't want them to shrink, and they come out of the washer so wrinkled it's ridiculous. I too hate ironing so the crap just stacks up till I need it. Interested in all the answers you get....

  • Natural fiber cloths will shrink a little when exposed to heat, therefore buy poly-blended fabrics or dry w/out heat.

  • I usually throw stuff I want unwrinkled in the dryer with a wet towel. I wouldn't think it would shrink it but I'm not sure.

  • If you put them in the dryer with a damp cloth the wrinkles will come out.
