I have many small cut fabric pieces with the fold crease in the middle...no matter how much ironing I do on them I can't get rid of the crease marks. Any suggestions or advice to remove the crease so I can use the whole piece of fabric?

Wash your material first, dry, then steam press and the crease should come out....

I spray them with water and press with iron. :)

I've read and heard that spraying vinegar on the crease would help. I don't personally know if it's true. I guess you could try it on a couple and see though.

When this happens to me I just wash the fabric again and it seems to fix the problem.

My iron has a burst of steam feature that is great for stubborn creases

Hello,

I used to sew clothing for people & at that time I used the vinegar water with steam method to remove hem lines. It really does work. Anyway, it used to!! :D

Good luck,
Cheryl

Yep, the vinegar/water trick works. I keep a spray bottle of 1/4 cup white vinegar & 1 quart water beside my ironing board at all times. It will also put a crease IN fabric. It sorta smells like a pickle for a short time but I have never had a problem with the smell staying in & I have done this for years.
