There are few things that are more comfortable than slipping into a clean bed that is made with 100% cotton sheets. However, cotton bed sheets can incur their share of wrinkles.
Cotton poly sheets wrinkle much less, but because they are not made from natural fibers they don’t feel as nice and comfortable as cotton sheets. It is not mandatory to iron cotton sheets, but when they are ironed, they look and feel much nicer. This will also produce fewer wrinkles in the future because the fibers will be more relaxed. But not everybody enjoys ironing, so here are a few alternatives:
- Do nothing, your sheets will still feel more comfortable than cotton/poly blends.
- Have someone else iron your sheets.
- Take your sheets to get laundered and pressed, but do not have them dry cleaned.
- Follow our helpful hints and remove the wrinkles.
Minimizing the amount of wrinkles in your luxury linens can also be accomplished by following some simple steps that take very little effort:
- Do not overload the washer or dryer as this will increase wrinkling.
- Put one set of sheets in the washer and dryer at a time.
- Don’t be lazy and let the sheets sit in the dryer once the buzzer sounds.
A spray bottle can also be your best friend. So grab a spray bottle of water and set your aim to those unsightly wrinkles. Filling your spray bottle with fragrance waters can keep your elegant linens smelling fresh. Tap water will also do the trick. Vero Linens actually sells a wonderful linen spray and detergent on our site found here.
Now, on to ridding wrinkles from your bed linens with the use of a spray bottle. Follow these simple instructions and enjoy the sight and feel of wrinkle-free linens.
- Stuff your pillowcase and then hold it with one hand from the cuff while giving it a light spritz on both sides.
Now give shake it up and down a bit while still holding it from the cuff. This will cause the wrinkles to fall right out.
The key to this technique is making sure to apply some tension on the fabric.
It’s okay if your linens are a bit damp as it will only take a few minutes for them to dry.
The fitted sheet:
Put it on the bed and since it is elasticized, there will already be some tension. All that is required next is a few spritzes from your spray bottle.
The flat sheet:
As shown in the photo below, grab one of the top corners of the sheet. Pull it so that it is slightly taut and commence with a few spritzes. Repeat this same step on the other side of your bed. You will be amazed at how easily the wrinkles fall right out. It will look like your sheets have just been ironed!
