Do you iron your bed sheets?

Print Friendly

There’s nothing like getting into a hotel bed with clean, crisp linen even though it may not be as comfortable as your own bed.

Ironing is one of the most hated household chores, and many people iron as little as they can possibly get away with.  So when it comes to bed sheets and duvet covers, likely to be the largest items to manoever over an ironing board, many of us draw the line and don’t attempt it.  However, some of us, even though we know they will soon get crumpled, can’t resist the struggle and iron their bed sheets.

Which camp are you in … do you feel compelled to iron your bedding no matter what, or are you really not concerned about the crinkles?

Even stephens on this one. I'm an ironer, it's a much easier job than some of the other stuff which needs ironing, and it does provide a much better and more comfortable bed to sleep in.

There is a great feeling of pleasure and comfort in getting between freshly laundered and ironed sheets.

No! I iron very little these days, and wouldn't dream of ironing any item of bedding, duvet covers, sheets or pillowcases included. Even clothes, if you shake them when they come out of the washer, then put on hangers to dry, they are ok to wear. More creased items can be hung in the shower, so the steam helps get out the creases.

I couldn't bear to sleep in a bed with unironed sheets; I love the feelig of clean laundered sheets. I wish I could put unironed sheets on the bed, but I just can't do it! 🙂

Life is too short to iron sheets. Can't remember the last time I used my iron, if you shop for the right cloths and put them on a hanger as you take them out of the dryer you need never iron again. Can't understand people who say they 'enjoy' ironing I'd rather poke pins in my eyes. 🙂

I absolutely hate ironing but I still iron my sheets and the odd cotton items that do not come out of the dryer in a good way. I love the feel of clean ironed sheets and cotton shirts etc. it's worth the time spent ironing.

Life's too short to iron sheets. It makes it more of a treat when you sleep in a bed when someone has done it though 🙂

No. They only get crumpled when you get in them so why bother? I just fold up bed linen or put it straight back on the bed. I only ever iron what I have to - I've never understood people who iron things like underpants either....

If ironed they take up less room in the cupboard otherwise don't think it makes a great deal of difference as the crinkles get smoothed out once on the bed because of heat of body so its a quick dash with the iron

Must say I don't think I have ever ironed sheets. My wife irons our bed sheets and it is a good feeling going to sleep on crisp sheets.
