Downy Wrinkle Release Spray "recipe"

I have been using Downy Wrinkle Release for a few years. It really works well when you don't have time (or energy!) to iron. But now I can't find it anywhere and heard it was discontinued. It's on Amazon for $15 a bottle and I don't want to pat that. Does anyone know how to make it on their own?

I Fill the spray bottle about 3/4 the way up with water and about 1/4 of fabric softener. I've also read you can add vinegar which is a natural softener. Someone here will probably give you better measurements. It works great for me. Linda

Honestly? Just fill the bottle with water.

When I got my first downy's wrinkle releaser spray some years ago, I thought it was magic and was thrilled!! Then I ran out and could't get more right away. In desperation, I filled the bottle with plain water.

It worked exactly the same!!!

I love my spray bottle and even travel with it now so i don't have to use the iron in hotels.

I just bought a new bottle at Target probably 2 weeks ago, so they do still make/sell it. Either that our Target has old stock.

I usually water my wrinkle spray down because I like that it 'thins out' the fragrance. I am NOT a fragrance person at all (allergies) so I have to use Free/Clear detergent and softener. I am not always a fan of the 'wrinkle spray' smell.

My hubby says that all of Disney World smells the same - like Downy Wrinkle Spray! He is convinced everyone uses it there each morning and as you walk around the park that is all you smell!

I have been buying the Dollar General's brand of this for around $1.75 a bottle. It works just as well and is a lot cheaper than the name brand. I heard about it from another person on the DIS board.

Yup! I did the same thing. Spraying the clothes with water, smoothing it out and letting in hang dry works just as well.

We make it routinely. We use about 1 part downy, or other brand to 10 parts water and add a little bit of alcohol. This helps it dry faster if you are doing it five minutes before you leave the house. Sometimes we will spray it and then throw it in the dryer for a few minutes. We did try using water and found the little bit of downy in it works better for us.

I must be really old school because I still just hang stuff in the bathroom when taking a shower and let the steam take care of it.

I agree with this. I used the Downy stuff a few times but then I discovered that water would do the same thing, much cheaper!!
