How to Unwrinkle Tissue Paper


People have been finding creative ways to recycle as they become more conscious about the amount of waste accumulating in landfills. When you receive a gift, for instance, unwrinkle the used tissue paper and make it look brand-new again instead of simply tossing it. Restoring tissue paper to pristine condition takes just a few short minutes and can be done with nothing more than an iron.

Things You'll Need

  • Iron
  • Ironing board
  • Set up an ironing board.

  • Preheat the iron to the proper setting for polyester. Set the iron to emit a light amount of steam.

  • Stack three sheets of tissue paper on the ironing board, matching up the corners and edges. Use your hands to smooth them as much as possible.

  • Press the stack with the iron.

  • Flip the stack of tissue over so that the bottom sheet is on the top.

  • Iron the stack again.

Tips & Warnings

  • Stacking the sheets makes it easier to iron them without tearing, although you can iron single sheets as well.
