Eh Rem,
Mine was just as terrible as yours
I used a heat gun and a cotton sock! Wave the gun and follow your waves with a rub of the sock to smooth it down! You will need to seal down ALL seams with an iron of some sort tho! I pull my fingers against the seams on the edges to "feel" if they need the iron and I found that ALL the edge seams needed attention!
