You need to care for your cotton muslin backdrop because it is cotton it creases , there are several ways of reducing creases ironing is not advised as this can give a shine to the material that you don’t want. Using a hand steamer that can be picked relatively cheaply this is one way to tackle creases, the backdrop is hung up or opened up creases will diminish the other method is to use a spray bottle and mist it with water to ease the creases out. Being cotton the large backdrops can be machine washed but should be given a fairly cool wash so that any dye will not run and tumble dry to help keep the creases out and as soon as you remove from the tumble dryer get onto the background support to minimise the creases. Its a better idea to minimise the backdrop getting dirty in the first place as washing and getting the creases becomes a bit of a task.
