show ribbons

So my show ribbons are all wrinkled, cause you know they wrinkle if they are even touched it sees like, and I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to straighten them?

I've always used an iron on low heat. Make sure it's not fabric that will melt :P

Everyone has told me to try hanging them up while im in the shower when its really steamy, or to put a damp washcloth over them and iron but I didnt know if it worked or not and I've been afraid to try cause I don't want to mess them up. So I've been looking for ideas or things that people have done that's worked.

Isnt it the worst when the ring stewards give you a folded ribbon that leaves it all wrinkled?!?!?!

Yeah, I'd say iron them. Omgs, I HATE it when they do that. It's so annoying.

Yeah you are lucky mine are made out of a ribbon/plasticy ribbon material

I think everyone will agree that they wrinkle easier than they should

If it is the kind of material that will melt easily try putting a pillow slip or tea towel over the ribbon and iron it that way. That way the slip or towel takes the most of the heat but enough gets through that it will iron the ribbon ok
