So I bought a couple yards of vinyl via amazon (white and black). It came in a large roll however it seems that at some point they got smooshed so I have creases all in it. And they're visible (at least in the white. haven't tried the black yet). how can i get it out? here's a photo (forgive the quality as its unedited)

i bought a vinyl table cloth to use for valentine pics and the things that worked for me....

I hung it over my shower bar and turned the shower on hot as it could go and just let it run for a bit to get hot and steamy....that helped some but didn't work that great.....I then let it hang up there for a couple days and that helped a little more....

the thing that worked the best was laying it out on my ironing board and putting a towel over it and ironing the creases out.....ironing the towel....I would use the smoothest towel you can find tho....not one with alot of texture if that makes sense??

I had a vinyl table cloth too and used the steam on my iron to smooth it out being careful to not use the steam in one place for too long.
