Now you don’t have to throw used ribbon away. Here’s a quick way to straighten wrinkled ribbon.
You can make a wrinkled ribbon look like new.
Simply heat your curling iron to a low setting. You don’t want it too hot!
After the curling iron is heated, test it on the end of the ribbon you want to straighten.
If the curling iron is too hot, it can melt the ribbon, so run the end of the ribbon quickly through the curling iron.
On the green ribbon I straightened, I couldn’t just pull the ribbon through because it would have melted.
So I just quickly clamped and released the iron over the wrinkled areas.
Then I rewound the ribbon on it’s spool where it will be ready the next time I need green ribbon.
If the ribbon is sturdier, you can clamp the ribbon at one end and just pull it through the curling iron.
Easy, quick and done.
