How to Press Wrinkled Linen Without an Iron or a Steamer

Pant creases are the worst


Sure, linen is the unofficial fabric of summer. But it’s also the most likely to wilt and get all wrinkly within hours of putting it on. Here, how to bring it back to life in ten minutes (or less).

What you need: Access to a dryer, plus an ice cube 

What you do: Toss your linen pants (or shirt or jacket) with the ice cube in the dryer on low. In ten minutes, all the wrinkles will be gone.

Why this works: As the ice melts, it lets off steam and creates its own de-wrinkling system in the process.

Whoa, your pants look freshly pressed. Hello, summer genius.
