Two ways I know:
1. An iron and lots and lots of patience.
2. a steamer

As a general rule, the least painful way to de-wrinkle nylon is actually to stretch it out and go over it with a hot hair dryer. An iron doesn't work as well, although I wouldn't care to guess why...

Thanks Mark,
That's what I ended up doing, steam iron.
Thought there was an easier way.

Thanks Sam,
I tried a small area with the hair dryer and didn't get any results, so I ended up steam ironing it. Lucky for me it is small.
