Removing Wrinkles from Permanent Press Clothes

0 0EmailPrintFollow

I think I ruined some fairly new permanent press slacks in a too hot drier. Is there a way to get out the mass of wrinkles?

Ouch, try to iron them with a wet cloth this will steam the fabric not to hot. Try a small spot first to see if this will work on the fabric

If the heat didn't partially melt the fabric all you have to do is place a damp bath towel and the pants in the dryer on gentle/low heat or wash again in your next load and be sure to take them out just before or as soon as they are dry.

When permanent press articles of clothing have been overdone and are a mass of wrinkles from a too-hot dryer, wet a heavy towel, put it in the dryer with the wrinkled clothes and turn on the low or fluff setting.
