    Moro5 vuotta sitten#2451722Yes, I'd try flipping the tapestry over so that it's blank side up. Place a clean towel over it that will cover the entire area you're trying to iron. Then use an iron on its lowest/mildest setting and carefully iron over the creases. Occasionally lift up the towel to watch your progress and don't iron any one area longer than necessary. Apply steady pressure with the iron, but not too hard--treat it as if you're ironing delicates.I shall try that, then~ >< I'll be extremely careful, yeah, I don't want to put too much heat into it, or else I might melt it or make it wavy, and that'll be even worse... thank you for the suggestion!~

    Eccmy5 vuotta sitten#2451720Just read that leaflet. I'm sorry, but no, there aren't any indications on how to handle creases in it at all. :/ Just your usual recommendation stuff about not to bring it near a heat source or a fire, not to pull on it else you'll tear it off, to wash it once you've finished using it in order to avoid mould, not to use a wash machine to wash it, etc etc.Meep, that was a long shot~ Thank you for translating the leaflet though! At least now I know I shouldn't put it in the washing machine to try and get rid of the creases - that's another "tip" I read, put it in on the delicate setting, but... that's not a good idea. Thank you!~

    kero-chanI don't know Japanese, but I wonder if there are any tips or just relevant information about this on the part I marked in orange? Or is it just generic info like "please do not eat" and so on? If someone knows Japanese and is willing to shed some light on what it says there, I'd be really happy~ ;u;

    kero-chan5 vuotta sitten#2451711I could try that, in fact I thought about it (it's what makes more sense), but... won't that damage the tapestry, even in low-temp? ;n; Going by that leaflet, the tapestry is made of PVC? Being waterproof and all. So... I might try the iron, but I'm so afraid of damaging or melting the tapestry... ><

    Moro5 vuotta sitten#2451705Try an iron, a low-temp one. That might help because it won't just be water, but steam and pressure.I could try that, in fact I thought about it (it's what makes more sense), but... won't that damage the tapestry, even in low-temp? ;n; Going by that leaflet, the tapestry is made of PVC?
