    I have got all the Wainwright maps which come folded up. I would like to put them up on my wall but they are heavily creased. Does anyone know a good way to remove creases in paper without damaging it?

    Thanks,

    Try ironing them through a piece of plain white paper. Works for newspapers.
    So my butler informs me.

    Test on an unimportant map first.

    Sadly my butler refused to try, said it wasn't in his contract!

    Thanks for the tip, will give it a go one something else before the maps.

    My butler says to iron through blotting paper that removes any moisture, and make the paper more crisp.
    Sorry must go it's crumpets for tea
