Default Tutu help!

My tutus are going in a shop and I have searched but found no suggestions on how to keep them from getting wrinkled on the hangers while they are there?? Can you use a light starch mixture??

don't know about starch but I know they can be ironed if they get too wrinkled. Just set iron onto 'wool' setting and they will be good as new. I just make sure I bag mine in cello bags without wrinkling and send out to shops. How they look after them once received if down to them really I think. Thats sounds harsh but no matter how much you try they always wrinkle a bit.

not much help really

I dont make a lot of tutus but i have read several places that starching and light steaming will help them out!

1st let me congratulate you on having your tutus in a shop, that's great! Good for you!

I've found that steam helps the best, what if you were to hang them in a steamy bathroom right before you bring them over there and have 1 on display on a manni, and then put the others in a cello bag on a hanger. This way people can see how full they are on the manni, and yet they stay neater in the bag while waiting to be sold?

Just an idea, good luck to you!!

the bag tip..is good I've done that when shipping a tutu to a friend.

I've also used Downy wrinkle release...I had many tutus on hangers in a closet and when I pulled them out for a show they were wrinkly...so we took a leap and sprayed them shook them out..and to my suprise..it worked and it also gives them a nice fresh smell...lol

Thank you all so much!! These are all great ideas and I am going to have to try the bags, I have used gallon ziplocks...but (and this is probably a dumb question) what exactly is a cello bag? Is it like a drycleaning bag? If so where do I buy those at?

They are plastic bags, kinda like a bag you might put an easter or gift basket in...
They sell smaller ones at hobby lobby but you can get them online at a few different places,

I have also used the florists clear celophane cones/sleeves too!
