Removing Stubborn Creases

Sometimes your clothes develop stubborn creases that seem impossible to iron out. When your clothes don't need creases then why should they have them? Fortunately there are ways to get rid of unwanted, stubborn creases and it's not too hard or out of your way to do it!

I'd try some more orthodox ways first, before attempting some less common methods. Wash the garment beforehand and that should give that crease a jumpstart in loosing up a bit. After you wash it (you can wash it more than once if you want) then begin the ironing. Take some starch and spray heavily on the crease. Then move the iron slowly across the crease and continue pressing the iron to the spot. In most cases this should do the trick for getting out that stubborn crease you no longer need.

If simple washing and ironing don't work however, you do have a couple of options. You can remove the crease mark by rubbing a bar of soap along the line on the inside before pressing. Also you can pursue the vinegar method (vinegar seems to remedy everything doesn't it?). If you combine equal parts of vinegar and water and spray as you press out the crease. This will probably make your clothes smell a little funny so you'll probably want to wash the garment before wearing. (The extra wash should also help with getting that crease out).

Another tip you can try is taking a mixture of two parts hair conditioner and one part water and rubbing that on the crease. With both of the latter techniques however you want to test it on either an inconspicuous part of the item or on a completely different item all together. Make sure it's conducive to your garments before going full steam ahead.

Creases don't have to be the end-all-be-all of your ironing universe; rather, you can beat those creases and have your clothes come out on top. If you can follow these simple pieces of advice you'll be able to make those creases disappear and enjoy your favorite creaseless clothes!

Bar of soap worked great I also tried the vinegar at the end and crease is completely gone. Great tip.
