    What do you use to get out creases in fabric? I have a piece of fabric that has the crease edge from the bolt and it doesn't iron out. I was going to use Best Press to see if that works. Sometimes it doesn't for me. I have very little of this fabric left and it has a crease in it no matter how I cut the block.

    Use the best press!!! I use it all the time and it takes out the wrinkles and creases that are even left after washing the fabrics.

    I've always had good results from using white vinegar on cotton material to get creases out.

    This block will be used on a crib bumper. Do you think the vinegar smell will stay on the fabric. I guess it will have to be washed? I think I would have to hand wash the block then put the bumper together.

    Get the fabric damp and press it - more then just spraying it but less then soaking wet , does that make sense and make sure the iron is set on Cotton

    Thanks for all of your suggestions! I have enough of the fabric left over with the cease to try all of your ideas. I will see which one works best.

    White Vinegar dissapates. We used this all of the time in the garment industry. It works quite well for closing needle holes too. (They suck up like if you were to eat a lemon).
