I'm Jerry Pozniak, managing director of Jeeves, Manhattan's foremost luxury dry cleaning brand and this is how to get the wrinkles out of a charmeuse material. Charmeuse is a fabulous fabric. It hugs the body beautifully, that's why it's used a lot in lingerie and in gowns. It's not prone to wrinkling, but when you get wrinkles you need to know a few simple steps. Step one is you need a fabulous iron. You need something that's new. You want to check the soleplate of the iron, that's the metal part and make sure there aren't any dents or imperfections because if there are, it may cause snags or you may actually damage your charmeuse fabric. Step two would be to turn the iron on, fill it with water and set it for the silk setting. Most irons that you buy at home will have an indicator of silk. Step three will be to lay your charmeuse fabric whether it be a blouse or a dress onto your ironing board. You want to iron gently going with the grain of the fabric. You never want to spray water on charmeuse because it may leave water spots. Step five would be to rotate the fabric and to iron the whole garment in one direction. Step six, when you are done, take the garment off of the ironing board and hang it up because you don't want to cause any other wrinkling. Step seven, put the dress on, you look fabulous and you are out the door. Knowing how to take care of charmeuse and getting the wrinkles out at home will save you a trip to the dry cleaner. Remember if there are stains in your charmeuse, don't steam or iron it at home because you risk the chance of making them be permanent.
