Have you tried steaming or using a pressing cloth?  You could also try to wash them and take them out before the spin cycle and hang them to dry.  The weight of the water may help release some of the wrinkles.

Fabric steamer aren’t that expensive, a portable one starts at about $25, with the larger ones starting at $40-80. I have one for my dress clothes and I love it.  It’s way easier then ironing and works really well.  Buying one may be cheaper then taking them to a dry cleaner, and it would be something you could use in the future.  Or you could try the shower method that is used for veils, petticoats etc.  Hang the tablecloth neatly in the bathroom, take a shower or two and let it dry while hanging.   The steam should be enough to release a lot of the wrinkles.  The other thing you could try is soaking a tablcloth in hot water and then putting in the dryer.  You would need to remove and hang it up as soon as the dryer cycle is done, and would probably need to do one or two at a time.

Try spraying them with a mix of 1 cup of water and 1 tsp of fabric softener.

Tug the edges or hold them by one end and give a good shake, then hang to dry.
