Question by fultini: Getting wrinkles out of area rugs?
I have several large area rugs (not wool) and they have large wrinkles and creases that I need to get out, I just dont want to wait till they are “walked” out, anyone know how too, I have misted them a bit w/ water but some are still there.

Best answer:

Answer by bugaboo
Are this area rugs on hardwood or carpet flooring-
that’s one the the issues right there if not on hardwood- causes buckling/creasing–

We used a normal iron on low setting. its backbreaking but it works. Remember to adjust it as if you were ironing babyclothes or satin/silk material and use a wet towel under the iron so you don’t burn the material
