I'm Jerry Pozniak, managing director of Jeeves, Manhattan's foremost luxury dry cleaning brand and this is how to unwrinkle dry clean only sweaters. So you've got this great sweater you want to wear to work but you realize that the last time you wore it you didn't fold it properly. The label says dry clean only but it's a wrinkled mess. What are you going to do? Well you can unwrinkle it at home if you follow a few easy steps. Step one is we're going to need a hand iron for this. So you need an iron that can give you a little bit of steam. Step two would be to add water to the iron as per the manufacturer's instructions and set it to the wool setting on the iron. Step three, wait for it to heat up so you can see a little bit of steam coming out of it. Step four would be to lay the sweater down on your ironing board so it's nice and flat. Step five would be to use the steam setting on your iron to put a little bit of steam over the sweater at the top, using your hands to smooth out the wrinkles. Step six would be to go over the entire sweater getting out all the wrinkles. Step seven would be to flip it over and do the same thing on the opposite side. Before you handle your sweater, you want to make sure that it dries a little bit. You don't want to have it too wet with steam because it will tend to stretch out when you are done, you put it on, you'll be ready to go. Now we've learned that you can take a dry clean only sweater at home and get the wrinkles out, just keep in mind that if anything has stains in it, you don't want to try this at home because you may set the stains causing them to be impossible to remove.
