I received Downy Wrinkle Releaser to facilitate this review. All opinions and bad laundry habits are my own.



Let me tell you a bit about my laundry routine and tell me if it sounds familiar. Imagine that it’s a Monday morning, because, well, it has to be some day and goodness knows I don’t do laundry on the weekend! But if you do, just change the day in your head, it still works. So remember, Monday morning.

  • 8:30am, back from the bus stop: “I’m feeling so productive today, I’m totally going to tackle that mountain of laundry! I’m going to do it all!! Yeah! Let’s get stuff done!” (Except in my head, I don’t say “stuff”)
  • 8:40 First load is in! Not sorted, because sorting is for the unadventurous.
  • 9:15 Take out the first load and put it in the dryer. Put second load in. Wow, we’re on a roll!!
  • 10:45 Back hurts from sitting at computer, I’ll stretch a bit and put away that first load!
  • 10:46 Realize I forgot to turn on dryer. Entire hour and a half of laundry time totally down the drain. Motivation waning.
  • Tues morning, 8:30: Realize I completely forgot about laundry. Pull out first load and throw it in a basket. Realize I have a deadline looming. Throw basket in room and refresh the load in the washer by running it through rinse cycle again. Vow to put away first load after morning computer routine.
  • Tuesday afternoon: Put second load in dryer, forget about first load in basket.
  • Tuesday night: realize I need clean pajamas. Dig through basket. What I want is at bottom. Throw clothes back in basket, scrunch them down so they don’t spill over onto the floor.
  • Wednesday night: get tired of living out of basket. Put clothes away.
  • Monday of next week: realize I still have clothes in the dryer. Follow Tues through Weds routine until they’re put away.

EVERYTHING IS WRINKLED at this point, but I figure I can always deal with that later!


Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus to the Rescue!

Downy 1

Up until now, I either wore wrinkled clothes or threw the shirt in the dryer with the clothes that were still in there (or on the rare occasion that the dryer was empty, with a damp rag). I don’t know how to iron. Is that horrible? I never really had to. My mom did it for me, then my ex-husband. He was in the Navy and wouldn’t let me touch his uniforms, so I just let him iron everything. Now, I don’t have to try to find someone who knows how to iron or go through life with wrinkled clothes. Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is a total dream come true for this laundry slacker!

As the name implies, Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus releases wrinkles in your laundry. The specially designed nozzles sprays a fine mist, just enough to do the job right. Just spray, smooth and wear. Downy sent me a shirt to try it out on. It came totally wrinkled in the box:

Downy Wrinkled

This shirt, by the way, is amazingly soft. I need to find out where they got it. Anyway, I sprayed my Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus and followed the directions. The results were instant:

Downy Unwrinkled

Pretty awesome, right? So now you can totally slack on the laundry and leave your clothes in the dryer for a week without worry! But wait, it get’s even better!

What does the Plus mean?

The Plus implies that it has to do something other than just unwrinkle your clothes, right? I mean, that’s good enough for me, but I wanted to know, what does the plus mean? What makes this the Wonder Bottle? Take a look at a few other things you can do with Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus:

  • Get creases out of your pillow cases and sheets.
  • Freshen up those horribly stinky pet beds (note to self, do this as soon as the dogs go upstairs to bed tonight, their bed it pretty rank)
  • Spray holiday decorations when you take them out of the boxes in your basement to get rid of that dank odor
  • Spritz it on your furniture after aforementioned stinky pets (or your stinky kid after a day of playing outside in the heat) sits on it.
  • Freshen up gym bags! I don’t go to the gym, but I imagine they get pretty gross.
  • Get rid of static cling! I wonder if it works in hair?

There are so many ways to use this Wonder Bottle! That’s why I’m glad I have it in three different sizes! The large bottle sits in my laundry room while the medium is on my dresser. I can stash the travel-size bottles in my car for a fashion emergency on the go. Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is sold at places like Walmart, Target, Walgreens and other mass-market retailers. Check out Downy on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest to keep up with news and discover even more uses for the Wonder Bottle.
