Permanent Crease?

8 posts in this topic

There is a crease in one of my wild jerseys, the middle of the logo on the front. I tried ironing with steam and a towel in between. No success. I washed the Jersey and am air drying it. No success. Is it permanent or should I try the dryer?

Soak it in water and hang dry it. Then use a cotton sheet and iron the front and back of the crest with the sheet between the iron and jersey. NEVER use the dryer.

Try pressing it using this method but BEFORE it dries. The moisture in the crest will generate extra steam that may help you.

Mfitz is right. Don't wait for the hang dry to be fully dried. The crest usually will retain water longer than the fabric and the moisture helps steam out the crease.

Thanks guys. I did lay 4 high school yearbooks on it after the air dry. That pretty much got rid of it. I have two other jerseys with lots of wrinkles. For those ones... Washing even with no stains is fine? And then air dry. Towel, iron on steam to finish?

Washing a jersey is always fine. Use cold water. Always air dry. I rarely iron at all.

Has anyone had major problems with the wild green alternate Reebok jersey? The numbers will just not come out smooth. Wash, iron/steam, air dry, and 8 heavy books for hours. Creases remain. It's very frustrating.

Okay. Not intending any offence but just a question. Are these legit jerseys? Reason I ask is that creases aren’t usually that hard to remove unless incorrectly folded and stored which is VERY common on counterfeits and the material they use which is more plastic than vinyl is prone to deep creasing which likely is harder to remove. Just want to make sure you didn’t get burned on jerseys and are trying to salvage garbage but removing perma creases!
