This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have always been a fan of white sofas, but with four kids, it didn’t seem possible.   I found a way to make it work: Slipcovers.

So, I ordered an Ikea sofa, loveseat, and white slipcovers.   I love that I can pull off the slipcovers and wash them if (when) they ever get dirt or marks on them.   It’s the perfect solution.

The only issue?  Every time that they come out of the washer, they are covered in wrinkles.  I can pull them as tight as possible on the furniture and they still look awful.

Things I’ve tried: 
Ironing (just about impossible because of the size)
Ironing them ON the furniture (doesn’t work… trust me)
Laying them flat to dry – there is always a crease, so that doesn’t work.

One day I was using Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus on my clothes.  I’d so much rather do that than iron them because of how easy it is…simply spray, tug, smooth & hang. I sprayed them while they were still laying on the sofas and noticed that it worked like magic on the slipcover too!

It worked on the bottom, the back and even the arm part of the chair (I have a hard time with that part).

I then tried it on some of my pillows (for the same reason- I washed them and they became wrinkled) and it worked well for the pillows, too.

You can pick up Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus at Target, Kroger, Walmart, Walgreens, Publix, Amazon & many other regional grocery stores.  You can find a store here.  You can even grab some Downy coupons and offers to take with you (you know how I love a deal).
Plus, it works as an odor eliminator, fabric refresher and static eliminator, too.    I even keep little ones to throw in our suitcase for travel.

Now that I’ve figured out how well this works… next up is my new shower curtain.  I pulled it out of the bag today and this was how it looked.   Oh boy.  Off to give it a spray…
