    Hi all :)

    I have a lot of lovely pigenoir sets from the 50/60s that are terribly wrinkled. What is the best way to get the wrinkles out?

    Nylon shouldn't wrinkle badly, that's supposed to be part of its charm. Have you tried washing and hanging up to dry? They should fall out.

    Also, try putting them in the dryer with a wrung out wet towel (for humidity) for 5 minutes, then hang.

    Thank you so much :) I ended up just hanging them up for a while and the wrinkles started dropping out!
