Unwrinkle Your Sheets Without Ironing


Have you seen those higher prices for wrinkle-free sheets? Crazy! Sure, nobody likes to iron sheets. But you don’t have to if you take them out of the dryer promptly, while they’re still warm, and put them right on the bed. They’ll look and feel freshly ironed! What if you forgot, and the sheets have sat in the dryer for a while, all cool and fully crinkled? Here’s what to do to keep from pulling out the iron: Grab a clean washcloth and thoroughly wet it. Then squeeze it until it is damp (not dripping). Now chuck it into the dryer along with the crinkled sheets, and run the dryer on warm (whatever you usually dry your sheets at) for 15 minutes or so, until the sheets are warm again. Now go make your bed and then lie in it, or, if you love good grammar, lay in it!
