Winter weather brings out warmer clothing that’s more appropriate for the colder temperatures such as wool, leather and suede. Wool winter coats are fairly popular for this type of weather, but you also have to deal with maintaining the coat. One of the more common issues is removing wrinkles in the coat.
Things You'll Need
- Padded coat hanger
Hang your coat up to dry on a padded coat hanger. Wool clothing tends to wrinkle fairly quickly, but it also retains its shape well. If you leave the coat alone for at least a day, the wrinkles should remove.
Hang the coat in your bathroom on the shower rod and turn the shower on high to steam up the room. Shut the door and let the steam remove any wrinkles in the fabric.
Place the wool winter coat in a warm room if you’re not planning on wearing the coat for a few days. Keep the coat away from heaters and other heat sources to prevent the risk of an accidental fire.
Use an iron on the wool setting. If you’re iron doesn’t have a wool setting, then use the lowest heat possible. Run the iron across the coat, but only when it’s completely dry. If you’re in a hurry, then this is the best way to remove wrinkles.
