The best time to iron your bed sheet is when it is still damp. After washing your bed sheet in hot water let it dry for some time and iron it just before it dries completely. This is a very effective way to get rid of creases. Always use hot iron on creases.
Using a good quality Starch while ironing your bed sheet is very important to achieve the same comfortable feel of a hotel bed. Starch spray will make your sheets crispier but not stiff and it also helps to keep your bed sheet wrinkle free for a longer period of time.
Starch also gives your bed sheets more body so that they won’t slip off the bed and feel nice and comfortable when you sleep on your bed.
Note: Use starch with good light scent in it for a refreshing experience.
Fold your Bed Sheet Lengthwise
After ironing every side of bed sheet with starch fold your bed sheet carefully. Folding your bed sheet lengthwise saves the time and will speed up the process and also it gets easier to iron the sheets this way. The creases can form when you make the bed if bed sheet is folded width-wise. Also take care of the elastic at the corners of the fitted bed sheet and keep it away from iron. The hot iron can damage the elastic permanently.
