Non-Iron shirts aren’t really wrinkle free. I still need to steam them after they are dried. Am I doing something wrong?

Try taking them out as soon as the dryer is done and hanging them while they're still warm. Still won't be perfect but generally look good enough if you do that.

I actually air dry them. Just hang them after they come out of the washer. They will have longer life too.

This is the reasoning my mother gave when I was a child for why everything except for underwear went on the clothes line. As a lazy adult who’s been putting everything through the drier for the last 20 years, it doesn’t appear to be true.

You absolutely do not let them dry fully. Depending on exactly what type of shirt/brand it is, and how warm your dryer is, you should dry them for anywhere from 4 to 10 minutes, and then pull them out immediately. Make sure everything is good with the collar, front, and if anything got twisted and then hang it up

Don't over stuff the dry. Let it tumble with fewer articles of clothing and it should be less wrinkled

They won't be as good as an ironing a shirt but they should be good enough. Especially when you're wearing them, the wrinkles should be negligible as the shirt is pulled over your body.

Take it with you in the bathroom when you shower. Hang it near the shower where it’ll get some steam (but not too close that it gets splashed). Voila, wrinkle-free shirt!

I don't have that problem. Maybe it's a issue of the quality of the shirts you're buying?

Hang them up right out of the dryer.

I put them in the dryer for 5-10 minutes then air dry. Good enough.

Don't ever machine dry good shirts! Take them out of washer and put on hanger to dry. Been doing this for years and my shirts last for years, with no wrinkle.

Iron your shirts. It takes 4 mins. You probably spend more time looking at them and wondering whether you should iron them. ;)

Colleague said the PA call she just got off of wasn’t that bad. She said everyone with 50% or lower chargeability was already put in a bucket of people they’d look at to put as ‘not progressing,’ and that the stories from the CCs would end up being the differentiator. The only real bloodbath was the CCs fighting to try to keep their counselees out of the NP bucket. Most CCs came well prepared.
