LMAO!! I'm not even sure where my iron is! No, I don't iron my bedsheets and I don't iron my husband's handkerchiefs either...unless you count hand ironing (fold, run your hand across it, fold again and repeat) as I fold them as ironing.

Most of the time I just fold them as I take them out of the dryer. I do sometimes iron them though. I like to iron, I sit at an adjustable ironing board and iron as I watch tv.

I think that it is a little crazy to iron your bed sheets. Now when my granny was younger she would wash and iron her bed sheets every single day. I think its just the difference in the times. Things have been quickly changing and I think this is another one of those little things that have started to disappear

Wow, I totally agree that is a bit much to iron your bed sheets. I never do that though. I think that is a waste of time. I mean they are going to get wrinkled any way after you wake up, so then there is really no point in ironing them then, thats what I think of it.

I don't. Firstly, I can't really see the point of it (after all, by sleeping in the bed, it will inevitably get wrinkled anyway), secondly, I'm lazy, and thirdly, even if I wasn't lazy, there's just not enough time in the day. I have a few rather... obsessivecompulsive friends who like to iron their bedsheets though. Apparently it's more comfortable.

Nope, I don't iron sheets. When I was a little girl I knew some women who not only ironed their sheets, they starched them! I wouldn't want to sleep on startched sheets, and I have better things to do with my time than iron sheets. The wrinkles don't make sleeping uncomfortable and they're not visible to anybody except the person sleeping in the bed.

I would like it if I could type though. I meant starched, not startched.

Oh dear, no. I really hate ironing; and if I have to iron bedsheets as well, I would rather sleep without the bedsheets or on the floor!

I use drawstring sheets and the way they pull flat eliminates any need to iron the sheets. The drawstring really tightens the sheet until there is no wrinkles or looseness at all and they never op off like my old sheets. Ironing sheets is a huge job. Sheets are really big like ironing the shirt from a giant. A smal investment in drawstring sheets would save you a ton of work. http://www.drawstringsheet.com/info.htm

Hi poppoppop, of course I don't iron my bed sheets, they are perfectly fine as they are when they come in off the washing line. I wonder about the sort of type who do though, either they have a weird obsession for ironing or think that the neat bed police must be about to call.

Hi pop, among all the household chores I dislike to do the job of ironing the most. I always try to buy clothes or bed sheets which do not need to iron. I would sweat a lot after ironing clothes, and I have to take a shower again. Ironing clothes is actually a tedious work, especially to iron the big piece of bed sheets of double bed on a narrow ironing board. To avoid to do this monotonous work, after taking out the bed sheet from the washing machine I would pull every part of it and try to make it to have less crinkle and then to dry it on the outdoor line. It won’t look crinkled anymore if to spread it on the bed by pulling the four corners of it nicely and fitly. By doing all these I could save lots of time and trouble to iron it. Happy posting and have a nice day.
