Water!! dah So Simple!

I have a white bath curtain with wrinkles that I was going to use for a Halloween costume, but was too wrinkly, I will hang it in the tub and steam it to straighten! Then roll it up.

Cheap from Walmart, that will make a great translucent high key panel.

Should work like this:

The technique is simple. Sunlight coming through a fold-out Westcott translucent panel is an easy way to get a clear, white background.

White felt / fleece works well. The matte surface reduces any
reflections.

With any cloth, you can largely eliminate wrinkles by lightly
spraying the hung cloth with a bit of water.
