Rayon is a versatile fabric but is made from natural cellulosic fibers and closely resembles linen and cotton--fabrics notorious for deep-set wrinkles. This is a problem for anyone with wrinkles in their rayon clothing, because even when small wrinkles are removed, the bigger ones seem to hang on. Placing an iron directly on rayon can produce shine spots or visible iron impressions. Protect your rayon by avoiding direct contact with the iron.
How to Get Wrinkles Out of Rayon
Things You'll Need
Set the iron to the steam setting.
Lay a piece of aluminum foil on the ironing board, and place the rayon item on top of it.
Hold the iron 3 to 4 inches from the clothing, and move it back and forth allowing the steam’s heat to heat the fabric and the aluminum foil, creating a steam effect that will remove the wrinkles.
Steam settings tend to “spit” on fabric. If you are concerned about water spots, press your rayon on the wrong side or use a press cloth on top of the fabric and the rayon/synthetic setting on your iron to mitigate the effects of the heat.
