Thank you so much for your input, Will try out the tipps asap and a coworker today told me to do rechere on Echtes Krauseminzwasser - Aqua menthae crispae which is said to be a very good help with old hems to iron out. If I find a working solution for my fabric I will let you know.*** to all
Have you tried Mary Ellen's Best Pressed? I get that at my fabric store or Walmart (love the smell).
will have to look up what it is, in Germany we do have other ironing products i guess Thank you
When I was a little girl (back when the dinosaurs roamed. We all wore cotton dresses and my job on ironing day was to liberally sprinkle items and roll them up to dampen all over while mom ironed.. By the time she got around to the items they ironed out pretty well.
I still do this on occasion and it works.
It still works, Doreen.
Yes, and in the South, we put the damp items in a plastic bag in the refrigerator so that wouldn't get a mildew odor.
Sorry couldn't resist...are dinosaurs as big and strange looking as the movies? :-}
Thank you - yes I helped my Mom that way too way back
This is what we used to do also. We also put them in the refrigerator.
Oh my, I hadn't thought about the sprinkler top that fit on a soda bottle in years that mom would use to sprinkle (dampen) the clothes before putting in the refrigerator or freezer (if she thought she wasn't going to get to things right away.)
it will be a answer i am waiting for because that wiil be one to remember i have treid a few ways and could not find a answer lol
Thank you for looking in 8-)
When I was a very young girl (many, many years ago) and my mother needed to lengthen the hem in my cotton dresses, here is the trick she used to remove the crease from the old hem. Dampen the crease with white vinegar and use a brown paper grocery bag as a pressing cloth and iron until dry. Of course, you then have to launder again to remove the vinegar smell.
I have just hung outside and the scent goes away on a windy day, I don't mind the smell of vinegar. :-)
Did the crease go away?
vinegar - will try asap - Thank you
Vinegar was also used to put a crease in pants legs ... back in the days of dino's.
Some fabrics just will not smooth out.
Amen to this, I have two shirts and they look slept in no matter what trick I've tried. :-(((((
Thank you, we will see if the fabric goes in this categorie after trying all the good tips here
Just a thought - is it perhaps meant to have permanent wrinkles??
lol, Thank you - permanent wrinkles are in my face not on that fabric 8-)
When still damp, saturate with a spray starch or put liquid starch in the rinse cycle and iron while damp on highest heat with steam.
May I ask how much you put in the rinse cycle? I did not know it could be put into the actual washer cool. I have never tried either of these methods, but I'm game. Thank you. :-)
Maybe an ironing spray if all else fails?
Try washing it and see if that helps. Take it out of the dryer while still damp and ion it. If you have a clothes line, hang it to dry after washing it. Hopefully, there will be others along with other ideas. I hope you find something that helps.
