Don't Believe Claims on The Original Wrinkle Release Dryer Towel!

Pros:None

Cons:Doesn't release wrinkles nor remove odors

The Bottom Line: The Original Wrinkle Release Dryer Towel did not live up to its claims.  I would not recommend.


If something appears to be too good to be true, then it is.  Such is the case with The Original Wrinkle Release Dryer Towel.

Note:  The image above is different than mine, but I believe it is the same towel. 

Description:
 
I found the Original Wrinkle Release Dryer Towel attached to a card depicting a salmon colored blouse which appeared perfectly ironed.  The green card also had a red, outlined circle with a red slash sign across an iron.  In this circle were the words “No More Ironing!”  This was a magic cloth that I had to have!

The cloth is white in color and measures 16” x 23”.  It appears to be a microfiber cloth which is made of 80% polyester and 20% polyamide.

The card also states the cloth releases wrinkles, steam cleans, and removes lint from the garment.  The cloth is to be dampened and tossed into the dryer with the wrinkled item for 15 minutes on high heat.  I knew then that I was in trouble, for I never dry anything on high heat for fear of heat set wrinkles or shrinkage.

The card also claims the dryer’s hot air passes through the fabric creating a steaming effect that (drum roll) removes wrinkles, odor and lint without the use of chemicals, dyes, or perfumes.  Now, give me a break.  Odors?!

The cloth is touted to remove wrinkles from worn items as well as garments not promptly removed from the dryer.

The following are the directions form the manufacturer:

Place DRY clothing items in dryer (up to 15 minutes at one time)
Saturate the Wrinkle Release Dryer Towel with tap water.
Wring out excess water.
Lay the ‘wrinkle Release Dryer Towel flat, on top of clothing items.
Make sure lint trap on dryer is clean.
Turn dryer on HIGH HEAT for 10-15 minutes. 
Promptly remove clothing.
Hang, fold, or wear
 
My Experience:
 
I am a sucker for anything that is claimed to save work – especially ironing.

I placed three wrinkled, cotton knit shirts into the dryer with this magic cloth.  Even though I was hesitant to place my favorite shirts into the dryer on high heat, I followed the directions to a tee.

After fifteen minutes, my tops had not only wrinkled more, but the logo on each top had shrunk from the high heat.  I could have worn these shirts after washing, for I usually spin them for a few minutes on low heat and hang them damp to dry.  Now, I had to steam iron the shirts to get them looking half way decent to wear.

My Take:
 
There is a sucker born every minute and it seems that I was a sucker when I fell for the claims of this wrinkle release drying towel.

I might have even believed the claim that wrinkles would magically disappear.  But, to remove odors without soap or solvents?  You can’t  fool a former drycleaner!

Cost:
 
I paid $3.99 for the Original Release Dryer Towel from Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

The supposedly magic towel is made in China.

Thank you for reading my review.
