How To Remove Wrinkles from Faux Leather?


Q- How can I remove the wrinkles from my faux leather jacket?

A- Wrinkles and leather, especially faux leather is tough. I have a little cheapy faux leather vest that I acquired from a shoot and it has a nasty little perma-wrinkle in it. Here is what DOES NOT work: steaming it and ironing it straight on. Here is what DOES work :

1.) Ironing it with dry heat (no steam) with a sheet or a tee shirt in between the iron and the jacket.


2.) Throwing it in the dryer for a bit, then laying it flat and weighing it down with something heavy for a few hours.

Those tricks work well for me. If anyone else has some tips, please leave it in the comments section.
