One of the simplest ways to get wrinkles out of paper is to iron them out. To accomplish this, you need a spray bottle filled with water, an ironing board, two hand towels and an iron. Ironing wrinkles out of paper takes only a few minutes, plus drying time.Continue Reading
Lay a clean towel on the ironing board, and place the piece of wrinkled paper face down on top of the towel. To relax the paper, spray lightly with water. Use your hand to gently push out any wrinkles.
Turn the paper over so the front side is facing up. Place the second towel on top of the paper. Turn on the iron to the lowest possible heat setting, and wait for it to heat up. Carefully iron the towel that's on top of the paper. Keep the iron moving constantly and in a circular motion. The heat of the iron warms the damp paper, creating steam and releasing wrinkles. Check the paper periodically to see if the wrinkles are gone. If not, continue ironing the paper through the towel, re-misting the paper with water as necessary.
When the wrinkles are removed, allow the paper to air dry. Weigh it down with a book to help it dry flat and retain its shape.
