Bought yourself some nice-looking luxurious hotel styled bed sheets but too lazy to iron them after washing? Pure cotton sheets do tend to get wrinkles, especially when they are new. Hotel sheets are often made of a blend of cotton and polyester, making them less wrinkly. But if you bought 100% cotton sheets like Bedding Affairs’ Hotelier Prestigio™ range, you will be looking forward to having straight crisp sheets on your bed. But if you are too lazy to iron your bed sheets every time after machine wash, here’s how you can straighten your bed sheets without ironing. Your pursuit of the best way to reduce wrinkles in bedsheets in Singapore begins and ends with this post!
Although this may sound contradictory, washing your sheets every week can actually reduce wrinkles in your bed sheets. Pure cotton sheets such as Hotelier Prestigio™’s Llyod with White Lines Fitted sheet made from extra-long staple cotton are made of long cotton fibres can be stiff when new and relaxed after repeated washes. Another benefit to regularly washing your bed sheets is that you will be clearing your sheets from the burdens of body oils and dust that accumulate with lightning speed.
How you dry your bed sheets also can determine how much wrinkles your sheets retain during the drying process. Air drying is recommended as this can determine how wrinkled your sheets look afterward. Besides getting the fresh smell of air dried sheets, the process of hanging the bed sheets allow the weight of the water and gravity to even out the wrinkles for you.
The best way to do this is to take your sheets out to hang and dry immediately rather than leaving your sheets to sit in a wet crumbled heap with other laundered items.
Before putting your bed sheets in the washing machine, untangle them first. This will prevent wrinkling while the bed sheets are in the wash. Also, do not overload the machine or the dryer. When mixed with other items, the sheets get squashed and easily wrinkled. Wash one sheet at a time is the best option. Use low temperatures for washing and drying to prevent wrinkles from setting in.
When putting on newly washed fitted sheets onto your bed, spread it out and make sure it is spread across your mattress nice and taught. Fill a spray bottle with water and set the spray to mist and give the entire sheet a light spray, including the sides of the bed. Do not soak your bed sheet with water. Rather, just dampen your sheets with light mist. After that, run your hand firmly across the creases on the sheet to smooth them out. Do this in the morning so that it has time to dry. Although this method may not be perfect as compared to having a clothes steamer to steam the sheets, it will decrease noticeable wrinkles and creases in your bed sheet.
