    I borrowed a friends black skirt for a church service on Sunday (mine was too tatty), and it now has loads of lap creases in it which weren't there before. I don't know why I've made it crease and she doesn't, but that's just how it seems to be with all my skirts. Anyway, is there any way of getting rid of them so the skirt looks as good as it did for when I give it back to her? Ironing doesn't seem to have worked.

    Sit on it, back to front, then the lap creases will be on the back - less noticeable

    I'd iron it inside out, on the highest heat setting it allows, with lots of steam, and also spray it with water. Than hang it up ASAP

    Hang the skirt up in your bathroom, have a really hot shower, and the steam from that should help get creases out

    I was going to say use your steamer - but most people don't have one... try the shower thing.

    Are the creases really that bad?
