Subject says it all. Lay cloth side up stretching and smoothing out big wrinkles on floor. Throw clean sheet over screen (white sheet let you see wrinkles better). You can probably do this over your framed screen too. Worked very well. Just don't leave iron on one place over 2 second or you'll scorch white dye and melt vinyl (I've done it). Keep moving it smoothly and constantly back and forth or lift up iron to take a break. Mine had stubborn wrinkles which did not stretch out. If wrinkle is stubborn, use DISTILLED water (tap water may leave mineral residues especially if hard) sprays and then iron over area. Sheet protect screen material from excess heat, stains on iron, stains from you (sweat, oils, dirt, etc.) Make sure your carpet is clean or it may stain your screen (melted chocolate is bad) I hang my blackout (stapled on top and bottom with 2"X1"X8' pine) from ceiling on plant hooks like tapestry. I can also stretch screen further and adjust keystoning by hooking bungie cords to center and 2 ends onto dumbells (5-10# is adequate depending on stretchiness of bungie cords). The reason I do it this way is because I roll mine up between movies to watch RPTV behind screen for regular TV.
