For all you con-goers...

I remembered a little travel tip today that many of you will need to know while going to the cons. This tip works especially well on getting wrinkles out of cotton materials:

Take an empty spray bottle with you. (You can usually find them in pharmacy sections of department stores with those bins of little travel bottles.) Fill it with water when needed, and make sure it's set on "spray" and not "stream". When you unpack something that is wrinkly, LIGHTLY spray the clothing then smooth the wrinkles out. It should be unwrinkled and dry within a minute. Some heavier wrinkles may need a second try.

If the material is other than cotton, like silks, be careful with it . I'm not saying this works 100% of the time, but it always works well with me on my jeans and t-shirts.

Have fun at Dragon*Con and all upcoming conventions or travels!

Thank you for the travel tip and wishes, PhyreLight. By the end of D*C, I will probably look like I got left in the drier, even if my clothes do not. ;-)
