Any feedback on low heat ironing or steaming to remove wrinkles? I have an Assos jersey that has a few wrinkles that seem to be "in the fabric" and thought I could remove them with some gentle ironing. If anyones tried it.....let me know.

Thanks

I wouldn't because whatever jersey you're wearing, it probably contains plastic. Also, the threads in jerseys are very fine so you may end up damaging your ridiculously expensive Assos.

If you like to get rid of some superficial wrinkles, then I recommend spritzing it with water and give a quick, warm tumble in the dryer for, maybe, 3-5 minutes.

Sure! You can iron it...especially if you hate it & / or are mad at it. Oh yeah! I forgot. Maybe if you wanted a new & different design on it.

Used to have this freind that would iron her shorts before going on hikes. I'm talking crisp edges, better than any edge I ever had in the military (no, she was not the military type, just OCD). She'd go on these 10 mile hikes through rough terrain and would come out still sharply pressed...

If you're talking about softener than no, it'll diminish the wicking properties of the fabric by a large amount. If it's not soft enough than get a new jersey, you do get what you pay for.

- yes you're old if you remember this.

FWIW- Assos has their own specific washing goop for cleaning their clothes. Probably costs a fortune though. . .

go with this method, but don't forget to starch it!

Yoo look maaaahvelous!!!!!! And that doesn't make me old.

FWIW#2: use a pure soap detergent. Biz is great. Dreft is pretty good (not a lot of extra crap in it since it's for washin' baby clothes). Woolite is NOT as good for delicates as Woolite would have you think: it leaves crap in the fabric. Also, you can use any product that is designed for washing down. Those products are gentle....generally pure soap......so that they don't wash the oils out of the down.

I'm not sure how you sized your Assos jersey, by mine fit close enough that there can't be wrinkles.......amazing, actually, because my Assos jerseys are the most comfortable jerseys I own.
