How to reduce wrinkles in your bedding.
Nothing beats the feeling of freshly washed sheets straight off the line after they have been drying in the sun all day.
As it is commonly known natural fibre such as cotton and bamboo tend to wrinkle quite easy, especially when they are new.
There is nothing like sleeping in gorgeously soft, crisp wrinkle free sheets just like we experience in a hotel.
The easiest way to get rid of the wrinkles on your is to iron the sheets which will 100% guarantee that the wrinkles however this may be quite time consuming.
Read below for some simple tips in reducing wrinkles.
Step 1 - Wash your Sheets
As always we recommend following the care washing instructions provided by the manufacturer.
Tip ** Wash one set at a time prevents overloading the machine which contributes to the sheets getting all twisted up.
Step 2 - Drying
Remove your sheets from the washing machine quite promptly I like to do this as the cycle finishes. Give them a little flick before taking them out to the clothesline.
* Tip: when taking them out to be dried be sure not to just scrunch them up and chuck them in the basket and let them sit there to the next load is done.
Allowing sheets to hang freely on the clothesline encourages the creases to fall.
Step 3- Making the Bed
*Tip: I like to make the bed straight away after taking the sheets off the line and ensuring that the sheets are tucked in nice and tight.
There are countless tips and tricks out there on the internet when reducing wrinkle in your sheets.
Here are just a few:
Using 1 cup of white vinegar whilst your sheets are in the machine can reduce the wrinkles as well.
* Be sure to see if you washing machine does not stipulate for you not to use vinegar.
Some Recommend using a standard spray bottle filled with plain tap water and spritz the water lightly and evenly across the nearly made with the ends not yet tucked in. Then shake the top layer of the sheet until you can see the creases start to settle, then make the bed nice and tightly.
I have noticed that some people have used bleach to remove the wrinkles from their cotton sheets
Avoid the use of bleach or any other harsh chemicals.
Yes it may whiten you sheets in the short- term and it may even take out those wrinkles but bleach ,which is such a harsh chemical it can cause the natural fibres of the sheets to snap which effect the life of you sheets and will cause yellowing.
