Excitement around Brit HQ is at an all-time high, with the just-days-from-now release of our book, Homemakers, on the horizon. For today’s sneak peek, we’re serving up four must-know hacks for getting rid of wrinkles, even if you don’t have an iron.
We’ve all been there. We’ve dreamed up the perfect outfit for an interview, date or night out with friends and then, alas: WRINKLES. The worst. Though we often admit to subscribing to the “I’ll just wear this and then the wrinkles will fall out naturally” routine, it’s not a great move when you don’t have an entire day to hang around in your perfect little ‘fit. Unlike previous generations of stylish women, not all of us have our iron at the ready… or even in our apartments. So, what’s a gal to do besides try to embrace a Zoolander-inspired derelicte trend? One of these four iron-free hacks!
Hot Shower Hack: Crank up the steam. This is a favorite hack for hotel rooms and apartments alike. Hang up your outfit in your bathroom during a hot shower.
Repurpose Your Flat Iron: You can use a flat iron to smooth out creases on your collars and cuffs! I can personally tell you that my husband uses this hack almost every morning. And even though this is his jam, I still raise an eyebrow every time I see him plug in my flat iron.
Spin Cycle: Give your wrinkly garment a quick spin in the dryer. Done and done.
Blow Out: What do you do to your hair when you need a blowout in a matter of minutes? Spray it with water and blow dry that ‘ish! You can take a similar approach to getting rid of wrinkles. Spray the wrinkled part of your garment with water, then dry with a blow dryer to smooth out wrinkles.
Be sure to pre-order Homemakers for over 1,000 tips and tricks for living more creatively, inside and outside the home.
Want more info? Here’s what the book is about, straight from the back cover:
The rules of homemaking have radically changed. Today’s generation is digitally connected 24/7 and often more focused on climbing the career ladder at the office than the stepladder at home.
But the home “maker” evolution has just begun. Thanks to advances in technology, tomorrow’s men and women will find themselves using new gadgets and apps to cook, clean, decorate and even manufacture everything from decor to clothing, from right inside their homes.
In Homemakers, Brit Morin, founder of the wildly popular lifestyle brand, app, and website Brit + Co, reimagines homemaking for the twenty-first century, making it as simple as possible to go from amateur to pro with easy charts, tips, recipes, DIY projects and tech shortcuts. Simple, beautiful and stylish, it offers the digital generation a wealth of innovative ideas and how-tos for a more creative life.
But wait, there’s more! For a limited time only, we are offering up all sorts of awesome freebies if you pre-order the book From inspirational prints to a custom-etched Moleskine to a dinner party hosted by Brit Morin herself, head to our Homemakers Gifts page to see what you can score.
We can’t wait for you to see our book in person next week — Homemakers hits shelves on March 3. Woot woot!
