Review: Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus

*Disclosure: I received samples of this product to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

I consider myself to be a pretty good manager of my household.  Things are usually pretty clean and organized around here, and the laundry generally gets done in a fairly timely fashion. There is one area where I completely fail (and honestly don't even try to do better), and that's ironing.  I'm not even sure where my iron got put when we moved into this house. In December 2012. My ironing board still is safely enclosed in the plastic in which it came from the store. We generally do a pretty good job of buying clothes that don't require ironing, but a few months ago Daniel got a new job, which requires him to dress a little nicer.  Meaning clothes that sometimes wrinkle. 

Thankfully, I have a new way to avoid breaking my long no-ironing record, and that's Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus.  Here's a bit about this product that is my new best friend, from a press release that I received:

Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is much more than a replacement for the hassle of everyday ironing. “The WonderBottle,” as it’s known in its new campaign, has over 101 uses for the home, family and traveler. In addition to its ability to reduce wrinkles in clothes, Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus can be used as a quick-fix solution to remove creases from pillowcases, bed sheets, drapery, tablecloths, cloth napkins, ribbons on holiday decorations and many other household items. A quick spritz from the WonderBottle can also remove odors and freshen up furniture, pet beds and infant car seats just to name a few. For those who still want to iron, it serves as a better ironing aid than water without the residue of starch. And in a fashion emergency, Downy Wrinkle Release Plus can even save the day by eliminating static cling. Truly a WonderBottle.

After thorough research and testing, the design of the spray trigger on the new bottle was perfected to deliver a finer mist of Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus. The new and improved sprayer delivers broader coverage to reduce drying time. Downy Wrinkle Release Plus works to eliminate wrinkles by coating fabric fibers with silicone that allows them to relax and slide apart instead of being frozen in a crease. Simply spray, smooth and tug, then allow fabric to dry for a crisp, fresh smelling and wrinkle-free look in minutes.
I used the spray on my skirt this morning as well as a shirt of Daniel's that I almost donated to Goodwill because it was so badly wrinkled. Seriously, I do not iron.  And I was very pleased with the results! 


Just a minute later!
No wrinkled skirt for me to wear out in public today, and Daniel can now go to work without looking like he slept in his clothes.  Best of all, it just took a couple of minutes to get the clothes wrinkle-free. My only issue with the spray is that it is a little bit of a floral scent, which my husband isn't crazy about for his clothes.  I do love that this spray isn't just for getting out wrinkles and that it has so many other uses- I love multi-functional products!
