Any suggestions how to get creases out of an area rug ?

I bought it last night and have never seen one with creases this bad. It looks like a wash board !

  • I was thinking of the steam too but hold the iron above the pile, not directly on the rug. If you have a "blast of steam iron" try that. Do it on an area that is sort of hidden to make sure it works first.

  • Steam it perhaps with your iron?

  • area rug......turn it over and blast it with steam from an iron, but don't directly iron and then PULL the creases out.
