Wet clothes get electrified pulling them tight in the correct shape then ironed and dried with static electricity.

       Crap, you kinda beat me to it. (+)
If memory metal strands were woven into fabrics then the heat of the dryer could cause them to un-wrinkle themselves as they cooled.
  

       Wait... that's totally different. I should post that. Y'know what? I'ma do it.   

       It's more than a little bizarre that I myself was also pondering a mass produced solution to ironing. So I want this to work, and no one posting in Google's spray zone seems to be suggesting something similar. Unfortunately, people whose machines give them static electricity in clothing are already whining and looking for alternatives.

       Maybe you just need to hit upon the right search terms. There are automatic clothes ironers for home use (though nothing quite like pashute is suggesting). Effie and Foldimate may or may not be shipping and it may or not work - but show up in my google search for automatic clothes ironing.
