Have you ever ironed a button-up shirt and thought, "I would LOVE if there weren't hard creases in these sleeves?" Turns out, it can be done — and the trick is too easy!

According to our guest, cleaning expert Melissa Maker, all you need is a rolled-up towel.

Melissa says that if you don't want that "crispy little line down the side," you take that rolled-up towel and stick it in the sleeve. Then, you do a "roll and iron," so to speak, so that you can iron the whole sleeve without every creating a crease.

And that wasn't her only tip! The "Clean My Space" author has two more great ones:

1. Iron your clothes when they're a little bit damp — the wrinkles come right out.

And 2. Before you add your ironing board cover, wrap the board in tin foil. The foil will absorb the heat, which will help your ironing time zip right by!
