    Default Creases in fabric

    How do I get the creases out of fabric that has been folded around a comic board for a long time ? It's been wrapped around the comic boards for about 2 years and pressing it doesn't remove the creases.

    Spray it with Best Press, let it soak in and press it. They will come out.

    I have also had luck with vodka water too. About 1/2 to 1 oz. of vodka to 10 or so of water. Shake it up, spray it on, let it soak in, and press out.

    If spraying and soaking doesn't work, I have had to resort to washing in machine, then ironing. Those creases can be a pain!

    white vinegar 1 part to 3 parts water in a spray bottle also gets rid of lines , creases and wrinkles.

    Thanks, I'll try some of these tips! Is the Best Press a starch?

    I want to thank all of you for replying to LToppins questions. There have been so many times that I run into the same problem. I think the first idea I will try is the one with Vodka. I don't drink Vodka but my daughter left a bottle of it here when she came for Christmas. Just might be a way to use to it up.
    Have a blessed day
