My Veil Is Crushed! Can I Iron Or Steam It? Help!?

I got married almost two years ago, and then I lost my veil, which my best friend gave me as a gift. She’s getting married in a few days and she is using my veil, which I’ve finally found. It’s badly crushed! I’m not in the USA and I can’t get it cleaned and returned in time for her wedding. Dry cleaners don’t have a quick turn-around time here.
It’s made of netting with small pearls and diamantes on it. Can I iron it? Can I steam it? Will that make it look less crushed? Help!

    i think steaming it would be the ideal choice. if you iron it, it could burn the netting and the pearls would make it harder to do seeing its not a smooth surface. good luck!

  • Jess:

    You could probably iron it if you set the iron on the polyester heat setting, with high steam, and put a dish cloth over the fabric to protect is while you are ironing it. You might also be able to use some paper towel. If the polyester heat setting is not doing the trick, slowly bump up the heat. Be very careful, though, to not touch the netting of the veil with the iron because it might damage it.

    cold water and woolite soak it there for 1 hour rinse it clean and hang to dry no iron if you have sparkles in it it will crush them . gently smooth it with your hands .and keep it hung for a few days .http://www.ehow.com/how_2189967_clean-we…
