Have bought a PVC coated cotton oilcloth and whilst it's lovely (and hides my horrible table), it has creases in it from being folded. How do i get them out? MTIA

if its what I think it is - table cloth PVC with printed cotton backing?? ( not heard of it being called oil colth beforeconfused

then you can iron it with care ie; - first try holding it up & shooting hot steam at the back of the creases, that should work ok

if thats not enough , try ironing it on the back with lots of steam over the creases & try not putting any weight from the iron onto it IYSWIM - weight might get an imprint of the grain of your ironing board cover, but light touch with steam on the back should do it
