Iron a duvet cover?

whomovedmychocolate Fri 19-Sep-08 21:51:59

Seriously?

Inside out

Sides then middle

Fold and re-iron

Repeat.

1) don't bother
2) pay someone else to do it

erm, why?

Hang on line as straight as you can, fold while still on line into a long oblong type shape then drag off line & fold into a square-ish shape. You can't tell f they've been ironed anyways after 1 nigt sleeping under them! Unless you want to iron it every day?

I don't.
Life is too short.

king size duvet i go all around the edges first and then do middle.

then fold in half and iron and so on.

ironed bed linen is one of the great luxuries in my opinion

Slatterns grin

They feel nicer when they are ironed and it destroys residual bacteria too!

tumble dry, whip out of dryer whilst warm, and fold neatly.

SlartyBartFast Fri 19-Sep-08 22:02:25

i start at the bottom and do the right hand side

when i get to the top i flip it round and start at the top and do the let hand side down to the bottom again

I iron on the top side (ie the side you see when the bed is made)

residual bacteria ffs

the day I worry about residual bacteria on my duvet is the day I start taking baths in disinfectant

deanychip Sat 20-Sep-08 12:49:30

i dont either, i hang mine over the banister straight when it comes out of the washer to dry, then fold it up when its dry the next day.

PMSL at residual bacteria... I don't iron either. Buy good quality and you don't need to. wink

life's too short to iron duvet covers.

I don't normaly bother but if it looks crumpled when on or making a special effort blush, I have been known to run the iron over it once on the bed. Kids think it is hilarious, but it works and easier than wrestling it over the ironing board only to crumple in when putting it on the duvet.
