Removing wrinkles from silk crepe

jblong | Posted in General Discussion on

In the interest of saving me time, can someone tell me if there is a way to get out a wrinkle I accidently ironed into my 4 ply silk crepe.  I’ve tried a little steam and no luck.  I know that you can get deeply set press marks out with vinegar but I wasn’t sure if this was safe on such a delicate fabric.  I’m in a hurry as I’m leaving the country in a couple of days and need to take the outfit.  Thanks.

    I would try a small amount of vinegar on a hidden area and see if there is a color change.  Also you said that you used a little steam.  How about using a lot of steam and check your iron temperature because I bet you had the temp up too high when you set the wrinkle in the first place.  Next suggestion would be to use some spray on fabric stabilizer such as Sullivans as it will not burn or scorch like spray starch can.  Good luck.
