It seems I saw a thread here some time ago with some hints on repairing old boxes, but I can't find it.

I have a dirty, damaged JW Firebaby box that I would like to repair. I'm thinking a mild dishwasher detergent in warm water lightly applied with a sponge and quickly dried, followed by a warm iron and white glue to reattach the flaps????

That might work, it will never look new again, could be made to look better though

Do a color scan/print of the graphics, laminate to card stock and just cut out a new box. I dis this with portions of an a 1947 Arden .099 box.

I repaired a Corsair box recently, I gave up on the iron. I lightly misted the inside with water than weights over night. Also used wax paper to keep the box from sticking to weights.
Did one panel at a time. When the wrinkles were gone I glued heavy brown paper on the right angles inside, it worked pretty good.
I found Pledge polish worked well to clean colors, the Cox box had a gloss finish outside and cleaned up well.
Your box should look way better after repair.
