Anyone have suggestions for removing set-in fold marks? I bought some crinkle taffeta (100% poly) curtain panels to use as yardage for a costume skirt, and even after machine washing, the creases are still there. I've never encountered that before! I'm a little reluctant to try pressing them out, as I'm pretty sure the fabric won't take the amount of heat these wrinkles would require to remove... but perhaps the collective experience of PR says differently?

Ideas?

Thanks!!

Garment steamer? Hang up in bathroom for awhile to take advantage of steamy shower?

Soaking overnight in hot water and Orvus has had no effect. A costuming friend suggested steam pressing with a 1:3 mixture of vinegar:water in my spritzer bottle. That sounds horrible (I can't stand the smell of vinegar!), but if it works....

(I would hope that eventually the wrinkles would *fall* out, thanks to gravity, since these are curtain panels, but I don't really intend to wear the skirt every day. ;))
