I’m in the market for a new set of bed sheets. While doing my research I found a set and one of the comments/reviews said “These are great, I never have to iron them!” My reaction was “WHA?? You iron your sheets?” My SO had never heard of it either, but then when I searched “iron bed sheets” on Google, it seems to be common? So now I’m wondering, do you iron your bed sheets?

Hell no! I got better things to do… I dont even buy clothes that need ironing.

No! I don’t see the need to. & I don’t know anyone who does.

DH’s grandmother irons her sheets. She’s also one of the most ridiculous people I’ve ever met (for many reasons), so it doesn’t really surprise me. I only break out the iron in dire situations. NEVER would I iron something that I’m going to sleep on and f up almost immediately.

My grandmother used to iron thier sheets. I think it’s recommended for when you have house guests, but I’ve never done it myself.

@pinkshoes: My thoughts exactly, why in the world would I iron my sheets when I hardly ever iron cloths that I wear and people see?

I will confess that I HAVE thought about it….. but that may have a little to do with the 3rd trimester “nesting” starting to kick in. I have yet to do it though (energy just doesn’t match my want to.. lol)

I don’t, but I have. Once in a while when I go to clean out that closet (really it is like once every two years), then I go way overboard and want it to look perfect when I am done, so I will iron the sheets to that they fold just right and look perfect in there and all neet.

Ok this may be a bit OCD but I do occasionally iron my sheets! I have some that come out of the dryer totally fine with just a bit of regular wrinkling, but I have 2 sets now that get AWFUL wrinkles. It drives me crazy.
I also do home staging so for that I have to make sure that all the wrinkles anywhere are steamed out. I’ve spent many hours steaming cloth shower curtains.

But I think it used to be more normal to do this, you know, back when the woman stayed home and tended to the house and had the time.

Haha I see that I’m the only vote for Yes.
I will let it be known that my mom and grandmother used to iron our underwear (grandma lived with us when we were kids). I guess it’s their crazy ironing obsession??

I’m one of the two who voted “other”. I iron the top part of the sheet that is folded down AFTER it is on the bed. I have hotel style sheets and I want them to look clean AND crisp.

I’ve heard of this, but there’s no way in hell I would put in the effort to… kind of an old school thing, like my mother and grandmother used to. I asked Fiance if he had heard of it. He has, and immediately asked that I do so, lol
He also raised an interesting point… of those of you who know people that do iron their sheets: is it done while they’re on the bed, or do you have to drag every inch of those suckers across an ironing board?

if you buy wrinkle resistant sheets, they look pretty good right out of the dryer. i can see how wrinkly sheets might bother some people but personally i wouldnt bother.
