How to get wrinkles out of thermal drapes?

I bought some grommet top thermal drapes today for our bedroom and they say "dry clean only" on them. They are covered in wrinkles from being packaged. Is there any easy way to get these out without ruining my new drapes? Can I throw them in the dryer with a wet wash cloth? I bought some velvet blackout drapes for my son's room and that was what they recommended for getting wrinkles out, but I wasn't sure if I could do it on the "dry clean only" drapes.


Re: How to get wrinkles out of thermal drapes?

  • While I usually say "to hell with labels!" and wash dry clean only stuff, I think in this situation washing them would make the wrinkles worse. I don't see a problem with putting them in the dryer with a wet washcloth or dryel. I'd also add in a few tennis or dryer balls which will help to keep the fabric from clinging to the side of the dryer.

  • For dry clean only things my mom use to hang them in the bathroom while she had a hot shower the steam would relax the wrinkles.
