White Company sheets? (Ironing....)

We live in a flat with no outside space to dry sheets, and no dryer - so outer sheets dry over a heated dryer (thank you Lakeland!) and end up a bit crumpled, which is hard to iron out. As such we're currently sleeping on Argos non-iron sheets. I hate them. I feel like I'm sleeping on plastic.

I want to treat myself and buy some lovely sheets. I keep reading that White Company sheets are amazing but horrendous to iron? True?

I noticed they have some 300tc Egyptian Cotton "easy iron" linen... Anyone had any experience? Worried I'll spend lots and find that it's just as plasticky.

Our bedsheets aren't white company, but they're 100% cotton and crease up like hell.
I've found that if you wash them on synthetics/minimum iron 60 with extra rinse selected, get them out of the washer straight away and give them a shake, fold them whilst wet and brush the creases out with your hands as you go and then hand them over the airer folded, it dramatically reduces the creases and you end up with only the old marks which drop out once the bedding is on anyway

you can try folding and smoothing them neatly and drying them lying flat on the heated airer.

Ooh that is definitely not something I've tried!

We have White Company sheets. I take them out of the washer, shake them violently, fold them in half and carefully smooth them over the radiator to dry. They look fine. But then I would never dream of ironing bed clothes so I might just have low standards.

I have white co sheets and never iron them. Once they are stretched out over the mattress there aren't many creases. A good shake before tumbling and an air overnight on a horse horse and they are fine.

I have 2 sets one the 300 easy iron you mentioned and one 500tc normal, the higher tc are easier to iron and nicer. They are both gorgeous to sleep in.

Try the Hilden sheets - they are really easy to iron & great quality -
