Mom reveals how she NEVER irons her children's uniforms thanks to this nifty $2 hack
Young mothers will vouch for the fact that getting their children ready for school can be a burdensome task, especially when it comes to sorting their uniforms.
One mom, however, has seemingly found the hack of the century so that she never has to iron her children's school apparel again. TikToker @charlascleaninghacks revealed to the delight of mothers across the internet that her secret is using Lenor's Crease Releaser spray, which costs as little as £2.49 ($2.80) in Asda and B&M. Charla posted a video showing how she turned the uniform inside out before spraying over the creases and later using her hands to smooth out any lines or wrinkles.
“Anyone else stopped using their iron? Because Lenor spray comes in handy for school uniforms," the mom gushed on her TikTok. Furthermore, the spray reportedly has a 'Spring Awakening' perfume that leaves fabric smelling fresh. “I barely use my iron like I used to since Lenor crease releaser it’s so easy to use on my son's t-shirts," she added. Viewers, many of whom were busy moms, seemed rather impressed with the hack and wanted to try the product for themselves. “I didn’t know there was such a product!!!!!!” one wrote. “I use it the night before and it makes the clothes smell like they've just come out the wash good hack tbh," another offered.

However, Charla isn't the first mom to be bowled over by Lenor's Crease Releaser. Claudia Hosking also took to her TikTok to flaunt the impressive results she enjoyed after using the spray. In a video, she first zoomed in on her crumpled white sheets before using the spray. The following frame showed her crisp bedspread looking as though it's been freshly pressed after being doused in the scented product. What's the science behind the apparent miracle? Crease-releasing sprays are specially formulated chemical compounds that help to relax the fibers of one's fabric so that wrinkles can be easily removed without the use of an iron.

That said, some mothers warned that Lenor's Crease Release spray had rendered their homes "a death trap" after sharing anecdotal evidence that their floors were "lethal" after using the wonder spray. One concerned mother asked for advice online after she used the product and found her carpet was slippy and didn't know how to get rid of it. "Has anyone noticed that when you spray this on your clothes it makes the carpet really slippy & leaves a horrible feeling on your feet?" Hoovered & scrubbed but if that does work anything else? Maybe wet vac?" she wrote on Facebook. Several others commented on the post to say they were dealing with the same problem.
Responding to the complaints, manufacturer Star Brands Ltd noted in a statement that the bottle clearly warns users to thoroughly clean any floor surfaces that may be exposed to the spray. "The Lenor Crease Releaser product is made using a silicon-based ingredient. This ingredient is what makes the product effective and relaxes creases in fiber," a spokesman said. "However, this ingredient can make floors and other surfaces slippery if spilled. The product, therefore, has two quite prominent warnings on the pack: A warning covering the full left side panel and a warning in bold capital lettering on the back of the pack. Both warnings clearly state that floors can become slippery if the product is spilled and that they should be cleaned immediately." They added, "We also recommend that consumers place a towel below the garments to be treated."
