Wrinkles can put a crimp in your documents. Get your paper back in shape in no time with these tips.

Step 1: Spray
Spray, from a distance, a small amount of water onto the wrinkled area.

Use distilled water -- tap water will stain the paper due to its mineral content.

Step 2: Place between objects
Place the wrinkled paper between two hard, flat objects; allow it to dry for 1 to 2 days.

Step 3: Lay out
Lay out the wrinkled paper on a flat surface in the bathroom away from the shower.

Step 4: Run shower
Run a hot shower for approximately 10 minutes to help relax the paper fibers. Shut the door to the bathroom to allow the room to fill up with steam.

Step 5: Place between objects
Take the paper out of the bathroom and place it between two hard, flat objects, like books. Allow it to dry for 1 to 2 days.

Step 6: Place cloth on top
Place a cloth over the wrinkled paper and iron on the lowest setting. Keep the iron moving and allow the paper to cool before touching. Enjoy your like-new sheet of paper.

Did You Know?
The average American uses 700 pounds of paper each year.
