Picture the scene. You had decided to stay in for the evening, drink some glasses of wine, watch a movie with your cat. Then you get a phone call from a friend and things change. You consider swapping the wine for prosecco and putting on the favorite dress.
But when you fish it out it’s wrinkled. This garment is the perfect thing to wear for the evening but there’s no way to wash it and iron it in time. Fortunately you can wear it with this quick tip.
