This is my first time on here, and I really hope someone can help. I'm altering a pair of drapes, and the old hem line is now showing, but I can't get the old ironed line mark out.
Look forward to any replies.

I've always used about half and half white vinegar and water sprayed on to remove creases. However, this site says to use the vinegar full strength. Hope this helps: http://www.jackbrowncleaners.com/cleaning.htm
I use a damp pressing cloth and it works absolutely everytime. It will save your fabric from getting shiney.
I was looking at BHG.com and they have drapes that are quite popular now with a band of a colored or patterned fabric added to the bottom. They are so attractive and add a little pick-me-up to drapes you already own or make new. Might be worth the thought!
Sew a decorative trim over the top.....bias tape, matching strip of fabric. If you have a decorative stitch sewing machine, do a decorative stitch in a color to match your room. If you have no sewing machine, all is not lost. Do the same decorating with no sew glue. It works fine.
