Get wrinkle-free shears after washing.

Step 1

Remove the sheers from the washing machine and place them in the dryer. Add two or three hand towels to the dryer with the sheers to help remove some of the wrinkles that may occur during the drying process. Set the dryer to cool and turn it on. Remove the sheers from the dryer while they are still slightly damp and return them to their hanging position over the windows.

Step 2

Fill the spray bottle with 1 part white vinegar and 3 parts cool water. Shake the spray bottle to mix the ingredients well. Hang the sheers from the clothesline with the clothespins and spray the sheers evenly with the diluted vinegar. Allow the sheers to dry completely and you should see the wrinkles disappear effectively from the sheer fabric.

Step 3

Spot treat wrinkles while they hang on the windows. Saturate a clean cloth with warm water and wring it out thoroughly. Place a dry and clean cloth on the backside of the sheer fabric behind a wrinkle and blot at the wrinkle with the wet cloth. Continue moistening the sheer fabric until you remove the wrinkle and then allow the sheer fabric to air dry.
