How do I get iron marks off polyester trousers?
Polyester is a form of plastic. You're getting the ironing marks because you have the iron too hot and it's burning/melting the material. In the future, turn the pants inside out and iron the wrong side OR get an ironing cloth that protects the clothing from burning. Unfortunately, I learned this the hard way.
I accidently used an iron that was too hot on my polester black pants while pressing the hem. Now I have an area that is shiney on that area of the pants. Is there any help for this or is the fabric simply melted? Any ideas would be appreciated.

I read this somewhere that if you spray the area pretty heavily with white vinegar and then lay over that a damp cloth. Next barely set your iron down on the cloth until there is a little steam coming from the cloth. Iron should be set according to the fabric. Do this for just a few seconds. The shiny area will be gone. Hope this helps.
I have ironed black polyester trousers and have shiny marks on trouseres
Isn't boiling poly going to make it curl up and melt?
I wouldn't do it. If the boiling doesn't ruin them, the oil will stain them. Think grease or melted butter stains.
I have a pair of new black trousers and now I've ironed them, a silver line has appeared. How do you get rid of the silver line? I heard vinegar will do the trick - is that right?
I to have a New Pair of Trousers I've Ironed and a silver lines ? Saw someone post Vinegar Helps ,is this TRUE.???
Yes this is true. Next time use a pressing cloth to avoid this problem
