You could try ironing on a cool or barely warm setitng, but never hot!


On a whole though, I think most birdcages will need some sort of pinning to look perfect.

Maybe just try some steam on it first, before you try full-on ironing? If the netting has plastic in it, it could melt!

I had the same problem. What I did was put it in the bathroom with me as I showered (with the door closed) and after a few showers, the steam had gotten rid of the creases! I was too worried about damaging it with an iron.

Use a flat iron on a SUPER low setting and run it across carefully without pulling, or use steam either from an iron, steamer, or yes, even hanging it in the bathroom as a PP has said. Be sure not to fold it again when you’re done–lay it flat.

Whenever I have to iron something delicate I place a damp cloth between the material and iron. That way it’s protected somewhat. Always works for me.
