Default how to get wrinkles out of a tutu?

Anyone have suggestions on how to get wrinkles out of a no sew tutu? I am shipping them in a box and when it gets there it will be all crumbled. I wanted to put instructions in there on how to care for her tutu. But need some advice on how to get the wrinkles and creases out!
thanks
ashley

my mom makes tutus and when she made my daughters it ended up on the floor in room where it then got shoved under her bed, kids, gotta luv them, i hung it from a hanger though with 2 clothes pins and left it in the bathroom one day while showering, it seemed to take a lot of the wrinkles out, not all of them but a lot of them, also when i ship them for her i fold the tutu in half at the waistband and then in half lengthwise, like you would a towel and then i put it in a 2 gallon zip loc baggie before putting it in the shipping box, then it ships in a smaller box and doesn't get all wrinkled, just make sure you squeeze all the air out of the baggie when you seal it

A steamer or...
straighten and fluff with with your hands as much as it will.
hang in a bathroom with the hot shower on for 10 minutes. That should do it.

This is an OLD post (March 2009), but exactly the question I was going to start a new thread on. I am sending a tutu to someone and wanted to include "care instructions".

Other than the above - does anyone else have other instructions they use or a great way of boxing it up for shipping?

Thank you!

Stacey - thank you. I think I just need to put something in writing and get it done. Seems like the spot wash and steam does the trick.
