I found the dryer with a damp cloth did not take out all the wrinkles, and the fold line after hanging for a week is not disappearing at all. I will be returning them
Really good purchase. Really lovely drapes. Exact color I wanted (chocolate). Nice "hang" to the material. Can't speak to keeping out noise pollution or hot/cold temps since I don't plan to ever actually close them. A quick 20 or so minutes in the dryer on delicate or air dry with a couple of wet towels (as suggested on enclosed instructions) works wonders. Doesn't get out all the creases, but what's left will fall out eventually. I purchased 14 of them and, believe it or not, they were all the exact same (84") length, one to the other. How often does THAT happen?!?
Love the design, style, color, fabric. Everything is perfect until the summer sun hits them and they put off a serious chemical odor. Not sure if it is a safe product. Washed in vinegar and still smell. Unfortunately, I may have wasted a lot of money.
Really does block out 99% of light.
