How to Get Wrinkles Out of Silk & Satin

Wrinkles are a sign of wisdom, but only when they aren't in your clothing. Remove those stubborn lines before showing off your party dress.

You will need

  • Tub or spray bottle
  • Ironing board
  • A thin towel
  • Iron
  • Hanger
  • Shower

Step 1 Wet fabric Dampen the fabric completely if it has heavy wrinkles. Soak it in a tub and wring it out or spray with a spray bottle.

Step 2 Turn inside out Turn the fabric inside out on an ironing board.

Step 3 Iron Place a thin towel on top of the fabric and iron on the silk on the cool setting, just until the wrinkles release.

Step 4 Hang fabric Turn fabric rightside out and hang to dry after ironing.

Step 5 Steam fabric Hang the fabric on a towel bar or hook while you shower to steam out any additional wrinkles.

Step 6 Hang overnight Hang the fabric overnight to allow any lingering wrinkles to release. Repeat steps as necessary to remove additional crinkles or bunching before your big debut in that sassy number.
