    I brought this sweat jacket from online recently which is 100% polyester.

    I dont know if it wasnt repackaged correctly or what but there are creases/wrinkles all over it (in particularly the collar region).

    To make matters worse, it says that you must not iron the sweat.

    Is there any way I could get rid of the creases without having to iron the jacket?

    Hang it in the bathroom while you're having a shower. The steam usually helps.

    according to a quick search online, it says that creases are very difficult to get out of polyester. Ordinarily for other materials, I would have said just to hang it up and wait for the creases to drop out, but it may not be so easy with polyester.
    I'd be inclined to take it to the dry cleaners if I were you, and explain the problem. They will probably have a way around it and will be able to straighten your jacket for you.

    What about putting it in the dryer?

    I would rather send it back and get a full refund instead. This jacket is beginning to cost me too much

    This. Make it a hot shower.

    Don't just put it in the dryer- the creases will sometimes get worse.

    Yeah or off a cupboard or something or on the back of the door. Just have it hanging somewhere and the steam from the shower will basically serve the same function as the steam button on an iron.

    Don't put it on the shower curtain rail, it'll just get soaked.
