Don’t have an iron? This DIY spray can straighten up your sheets

Sometimes we just want our homes to look like an editorial spread fit for a Pinterest board. 

Life tends to get in the way of keeping things in perfect condition. Floors get dirty when you walk on them, things get disorganized when you use them, and bedsheets get wrinkled when you sleep on them. Now, you can at least keep one of those problems at bay. 

TikToker Carolina Mccauley shares home hacks, tips and tricks with 1.4 million followers. The do-it-yourselfer gave away her recipe for an easy homemade wrinkle release spray. It’s simple enough to whip up in a pinch. 

“It’s not the same as ironing but still gets the job done,” Mccauley said in the comment section. 


  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol 
  • 1/4 cup fabric softener
  • Spray bottle 

Mccauley’s steps: 

1. First, she sprayed the mixture onto her wrinkled bed linen. 

2. Then, she smoothed out the wrinkles with her hands while the fabric was still damp.

3. Finally, Mccauley let the bedsheet dry, and it was totally wrinkle-free. 

TikTokers appreciated her helpful hack to tackle unwanted wrinkles. 

“Just bought a new comforter, and it has so many wrinkles. So trying this,” a user said

“This hack rocks!” another wrote

“Love it! Probably smells good too,” a person commented
