How to Flatten a buckled Poster?

I have a poster that was framed for many years.

It was hung in a bathroom.

The moisture caused the poster to buckle.

You might say it has waves.

I removed it from the frame.

The paper is a bit thicker than average poster paper.

What would be a cheap way to flatten this poster?

I’m thinking of ironing it on the back and maybe even applying a bit of steam from the iron.

    Use another piece of paper between your iron and the poster, so you don't scorch the paper.

    It would be a good idea to practice on another piece of buckled paper first, dampen some and let it dry in waves, then check how to do it with an iron.
