Don’t you hate it when your prom dress gets wrinkled? No need to fear – there are plenty of ways to unwrinkle your prom dress.

Follow the processes below and your prom dress will be wrinkle-free in no time!

1: Hang up your dress in a bathroom.

Turn your shower on hot, the steam from the shower will help de-wrinkle your dress. This means, the hotter your shower is, the faster the dress will become unwrinkled.

Make sure you hang the gown where water won’t splash on it. It may take several minutes for the wrinkles to leave during this process.

3: Inside out your dress

On the lowest heat setting possible, iron your dress. If you are a bit nervous about ironing your dress, put a cloth or towel over the fabric while you are ironing it.

Make sure that your dress is safe to be ironed, it is best not to iron a dress that is highly flammable or made of taffeta.

4: Place your gown in a dryer

Put the dryer on the setting air fluff. Make sure you turn your dress inside out before you put it in the dryer.

Keep watch of your dress while it is in the dryer because it doesn’t take a whole cycle for the dress to become de-wrinkled.

5: The last way to un-wrinkle your dress, is to get a hair dryer

Firstly, hang your dress somewhere so that air can pass through your dress easily. Now, blow dry the wrinkles out of your dress.

This method, like steam, causes the wrinkles to leave your dress.

Before you do settle on this dress make sure it fits with your school’s dress code.
