How do I remove wrinkles from my new chenille drapes. I know I can steam the wrinkles out, but this is very time consuming. The drapes are 50 inches wide by 95 inches long. Can they be ironed on the wrong side?

I have put drapes in the dryer on low heat just long enough to get the wrinkles out and then just hung them on the windows eliminating the need to iron them except for maybe a wrinkle here and there. I've done this with all sorts of fabrics. (11/02/2005)

How about giving them a spray with a spray bottle to dampen them up. Sometimes just hanging them will get out the wrinkles, or throw them in the dryer for a few minutes. (11/03/2005)
Don't iron, you'll flatten the nap. Toss in dryer with a damp towel for 10 minutes or so, then hang up immediately. (11/03/2005)
How about spraying Wrinkle Release on them while they are hanging. That stuff is great! (11/06/2005)
I have had good luck putting silk in a bathroom then turning on the hot water for a few minutes. (06/16/2007)
