Q:

What is the way to get wrinkles out of polyester?

A:

To get wrinkles out of polyester fabric, a person should try either dampening the polyester fabric with water and then ironing the wrinkles out or try washing the item with a permanent press setting and short permanent press drying cycle, about 15-20 minutes. Typically, choosing the wrong settings on the washing or drying machine is what leads to unwanted wrinkles.

Both methods may require some ironing in order to completely get rid of the wrinkles. It is important to choose permanent press settings for both the washer and dryer each time that the person cleans the polyester items to prevent wrinkles.

Polyester is a fabric that is commonly used in clothing, hats, and other apparel items. The popularity of polyester made materials is partially because the material is easy to clean and partially because its color rarely fades with time. Polyester also holds its shape after repeated washing cycles, drying cycles and everyday wear.

Polyester is also a manmade fabric and has multiple names depending on the brand manufacturer. Some of the more popular names include Fortel, Dacron, Trevira and Kodel. Polyester can also be found in different textures and fabrics, such as jerseys, cotton, silk-like material and knits. The largest disadvantage in using polyester is its inability to breathe. This means that it holds moisture and body heat in, which may be uncomfortable for some.
