Product review- Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus!


Recently, I was contacted by Downy, the popular brand for laundry goods to review their newest product, Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus. Any item that promises to reduce or eliminate wrinkles on fabrics sounds wonderful to me because who wants to spend hours ironing, yes?


So accepting this product to review is a no-brainer! I was promptly sent a review kit which includes one 1000ml bottle of Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus, two 500ml bottles, three 90ml travel bottles and a Downy T-shirt.


The review kit.


Products close-up.



For this review, I decided to pick a severely wrinkled white blouse to see if it worked! 


 Before


After

Because my blouse was really wrinkled, I needed to spritz  a fair amount of Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus to get rid of the wrinkles (I did this little by little). 

For the product to work effectively, the fabrics has to be tugged after it was spritzed with the product (as instructed at the back of the bottle). As you can see, the wrinkles are greatly reduced after I spritzed my blouse with Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus. It definitely worked! 


However, upon closer inspection, I noticed some "water spots" at the bottom of my blouse. Perhaps I over sprayed?

According to the product, it is safe to use on visually all fabrics. However, to be on the safe side, always do a small test on a hidden area first. Before you spritz, please make sure you are 8 inches away from your fabric (as suggested on the Amazon website, there is no such instruction at the back of the bottle, by the way) while using the Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus. Also, be sure not to over spritz your fabrics.

I wanted to try the Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus on a less wrinkled T-shirt to check for water spots.


Before


After

Because the T-shirt was less wrinkled, I gave it a little spray and yet, it worked pretty well! There are no water spots at all!

My verdict? Overall, I think Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is a wonderful, wonderful product! I would use it on draperies, comforters, pillows, table cloths, table runners, fabric home décor items and the occasional shirt or pants for convenience. I would highly recommend bringing a travel size bottle (meets current TSA liquid guidelines) for travels to eliminate wrinkles on your clothing for convenience's sake. 

In conclusion, Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is an amazing alternative for ironing. If you are looking for a perfectly crisp, neatly pressed shirt, then this is not the product you are looking for! However, if you are in a hurry or need to do quick touch-ups on wrinkled fabrics in a minute or two, then this product is perfect for you! As a bonus, this product produces a perfume-like scent too, love it!

P/S: I just found out from the Amazon website that this product might create water spots on silk and rayon. My white blouse was made with 100% rayon, that explained the water spots.

  1. I've never tried this before so I liked reading your review. What a great idea to use it on drapes! I'm going to buy some for that! I hate ironing drapes but I also hate how wrinkly they can get, especially after washing. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for the review. Sounds like a handy product. I remember a similar product, can't remember the name, that was available about 10 years ago. Haven't seen or heard of it in a long time.
