    After you wash and dry your fabric do you have a hard time getting all of the wrinkles out? Do you just dry until it is still a little damp? Sometimes it is just too wrinkly and it seems like it take me forever to iron.

    I like to iron when it is still fairly damp. :D:D:D
    Even then there can be stubborn wrinkles that I spray into submission with water :wink:

    If it's 100% cotton you can use a hot iron with steam. I also keep a little spray bottle of water handy and spritz as I iron.

    If you live where you can hang the wet material outside to dry you will have fewer wrinkles and then you only need to press it. Sometimes that isn't even necessary.

    I also use a little spray bottle and a steam iron for my SUPER stubborn wrinkles. The spray bottle works perfectly for me.
