Ok so I am wearing a crinoline underneath my wedding dress and I bought it a few months ago off of ebay brand new and I only took it out of the box maybe twice.(Once when it came in and the other for my final fitting.) And since it has been in the box some parts of the crinoline are bunched up in spots won’t undo at all even if shaken a couple times. I asked my Future Mother-In-Law about it and the only way she knew how was if you had a compact clothing steamer. Well I don’t have one and cannot afford to buy one at the moment. I have read online that if you put a damp washcloth in the dryer with the crinoline that it could steam it that way and get the wrinkles out.
So my question is has anybody ever tried this technique and does it work? Or if you have any other ideas on how to get the wrinkles out?
Thanks so much!

Hang it in the bathroom and turn the shower on hot all the way, and let it steam in there for a while.

@kb7: +1. Make sure to close the door!

@Excited To Bee: +1, and put the stopper in the tub (if you have one) to create even more steam from the running shower.

Another vote here for a super steamy room! That should do the trick.

I have a veil shop on etsy and I’ve learned some things the hard way – one of them is depending on the type of tulle material the crinoline is made of, too much heat could melt and it’d be ruined. Bathroom steaming works like a charm.

Agreed with the Bathroom Steaming! I just steamed out a veil that i had squished in a bag for the last month that way!
