To ensure my permanent press shirts really do look ready to wear: I remove them immediately from the dryer when it is finished. Then with a little spray bottle filled with water, I spray the collar, button hole placard, and the sleeve edges. Then I quickly "Finger Press" my item focal points to be smooth and flat so they are no longer, folded, curled, or crinkly. This easy finishing touch makes a big difference for permanent press shirts to easily look so much nicer; plus, I know I don't look like I was tumbled in the dryer too :o)

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?

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.
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
