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

Video of the Day

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.
