Is there any helpful tips on getting wrinkles out of those yellow Disney ponchos? They've been stuffed away in a small suitcase for two years!! :blush:

try soaking in hot water for a half hour and then put onto hanger and hang in the sun for a few hours

stick them in the dryer for just a minute. If you only leave them in a minute, they will be warm when you take them out, but they will be wrinkle free.

Hang them on a hanger in the bathroom while you're showering. The steam should help with the wrinkles (at least it works on clothing). Whenever I put something in the dryer to "dewrinkle" it I also toss in a damp towel so there will be some steam, too. I've never tried with plastic, though. If you put them in the dryer, make sure it's on low!

I also recommend using the clothes dryer (on "warm"). Just leave them in for a minute or two, and put in a couple of towels, too, to give them something to "tumble" with. Take them out immediately and the wrinkles disappear.

(I use this method when I wash my shower curtain liner - works like a charm!)

Simple, just open up a can of "Who give's a rip" apply liberally over the wrinkled area, hang them and let them dry for 30 minutes and forget about them. :smooth:

I laughed so hard when I read this post..The dryer does work. I've done it many times...but deep down inside I so want to be a "who the rip cares"...I just cant settle tho when my poncho is wrinkled. :rotfl:

:teeth: QUICK!! Carefully fold and put in the trash... then go to dollar store and buy new tiny disposable rain ponchos (2 for $1) that don't ever have to be messed with again.
I know you made an investment when you bought the yellow wonders but cut your losses and get out now while you still have your sanity!! ;)

That's why we bought the Disney ones in the first place!! We had brought with us a bunch of those plastic $1 kind but heck the storm was over by the time we even got it half way separated!!! :rotfl2:

I recommend an iron set to cotton with no steam. Definitately no steam, that would ruin them. :rotfl:
