    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:

    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:

    :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:
