Should You Iron Your Bed Sheets? Here’s how to do it Right!

Should you iron your bed sheets?

There is a great feeling of pleasure and comfort in getting between freshly laundered and pressed sheets. Bedding that looks pristine and neat gives the bedroom a professional looking finish. It also gives guest room bedrooms that aren’t used frequently a luxury feel.

Certain fabric will crease more than others. If you hate the idea of having to iron your sheets every time you wash them, avoid 100% cotton and linen. Instead, go for a cotton-polyester blend which will be easier to iron and less likely to crease in the first place.

Wash your bed linen according to the care labels, and use a fabric softener which will keep each fibre smooth and soft, prolonging the life of each item. Iron your sheets and duvet covers whilst they are still slightly damp. Fold the bed linen before ironing to create sharp creases.
