OK, so you have some permanent crease lines in your fabric. You crank the iron up, spray on the Magic Sizing and iron your little heart out. YOU STILL HAVE THE CREASE'S.........NOW WHAT? I've never had any this bad. This is bad!!!
Any tricks, tips or suggestions out there?
Sorry Tonay, don't know what you can do...ReplyDelete
I'v gotten some out ironing while it's wet?? Hope that helps!ReplyDelete
I guess a surefire way is to wash the fabric. I just never do that. I find it easier to sew it stiff and crisp. lolReplyDelete
This may sound silly, but have you tried putting it in the fridge then iron it? Sometimes that helps get wrinkles out.ReplyDelete
I know that my linen shirts always iron much better after they have had a stint in the freezer! And I also have been known to iron things straight out of the washing machine (we don't have drier) and they often look better than if I'd line dried them and then ironed them. Sorry - other than that I don't have any secret crease removal hints!ReplyDelete
Have you tried spraying it with a little vinegar water before ironing? That helps me.ReplyDelete
Nope no idea. Some of my really old stuff from the lady's estate has permanent creases. I guess this is why they advocate refolding it every once in awhile. Hope you find a way. I'd love to know it.ReplyDelete
I had to read the comments here cuz I wanted to know the answer to your question. I would have never considered the freezer!ReplyDelete
Please let us know which of the ideas (mentioned above) you try and which one worked, okay?ReplyDelete
It's very difficult to get a crease out once it's been there for awhile. That's one reason why you should, every now and then refold your material, especially if you don't plan on using it for awhile. I've had the same thing happen. You might end up by having to cut around the crease...ReplyDelete
If you find a solution, please let me know. I have some on my musical angels quilt that I haven't been able to get out. Good luck!ReplyDelete
Try damping it and then pressing.ReplyDelete
When I was a kid my grandmother dampened the clothes that had to be ironed and then put them in the freezer. I really don't know why, but maybe it's worth a try.ReplyDelete
I think if you try Best Press, it should get the crease out. Out least that's what I've heard.ReplyDelete
