Nylon lingerie becomes wrinkled through regular wear and improper washing and drying.

Nylon is a strong, yet lightweight fabric that has a stretchy quality, so it's well suited for lingerie. It's easy to clean and care for, but can also easily become wrinkled. If you find your nylon lingerie is filled with creases, don’t immediately pull out the iron. While it’s usually okay to iron nylon fabric, it's possible to melt it if the iron is too hot, so it's best to try a safer method first to remove the wrinkles.

Place the nylon garment on a clothes hanger. Hang it in the bathroom on the back of the door, from the shower rod or on a towel hook.

Turn on the shower. Set the water to the hottest temperature possible.

Close the bathroom door and leave the lingerie hanging while the steam from the shower builds up in the bathroom. Leave the garment in the bathroom for at least 10 minutes to remove the wrinkles.

Put the lingerie in the clothes dryer if any wrinkles remain. Toss a damp sock or washcloth in the dryer with the garment and dry on medium heat for about 15 minutes. Take the lingerie out of the dryer promptly.
