Just take a coat hanger in case the ones in your hotel are those fastened on the rail and hang your clothes in the bathroom and the steam will take the creases out.

the school lessons just came back to me when i saw this.you will only get steam if the air is cold and the water is boiling and if you go in summer the air is warm and you dont get a really hot shower

You could always take your clothes to one of the little laundries - there are several all over Icmeler - they come back beautifully washed and ironed and very reasonable cost too

I never iron on holiday and just put the clothes on a hanger in the shower room.It works for me. I usually try and buy clothes that dont crease as I hate ironing.

I gave up taking an iron on holiday years ago. If you roll your clothes carefully and unpack as soon as you get there most of the creases should drop out fairly quickly. I don't take anything that creases too much though.

For some obscure reason known only to her the OH wraps clothes in tissue paper to keep them from creasing.I never notice whether it does or not.

Yes Don it does make a difference ..... well I do it too with some items - a layer of tissue paper ( saved from shopping or dry cleaners during the year ) in the item as you fold it and I think it does make a difference. The other tip I got years ago and does work is pack the items you are most concerned about on the bottom of your case and then layer the heavy items like shoes / bags / washbag / books etc on top as they act like a press on the clothes and stop them moving about in transit which is what really causes the creases.

Like others I try not to bring things that will crease too much eg 100% Viscose whereas Linen looks fine a bit creased and polyester does not crease at all and I also agree that the creases come out in the bathroom with the steam from the shower. I also find that when you get to Turkey these things don;'t matter as much as they would at home and you are less concerned about a crease or two.
