Question How to fix stinky/wrinkly/stiff printed ribbon?

I purchased a lot similar to this one from this seller on eBay for trying out toggle headbands and it's not quite what I was hoping. Maybe all 7/8" printed ribbon is this way (I wouldn't know since I only do clips with 3/8" ribbons), but I thought I'd ask...

It came taped in the little rolls as pictured, so it's pretty wrinkly from being rolled so tight. I would iron it, but the ribbons also stink from the ink and they seem pretty stiff, especially the ones that have more ink on them.

The seller said they're washable-- can I just throw them in the machine or is there anything I need to know? I'm assuming drip dry would be best?

Thanks-- I don't want to make stiff, stinky headbands!
