AIBU to think that NO ONE irons fitted fucking sheets

Because there are possibly two hundred and eighty five million better things I could be doing with my time. And uh I have a life?!!?? In fact I'm pretty sure lots of people don't even iron the duvet cover (the bit that you actually bloody see! )DH and I got in to a semi serious fight over it last night. He was positively horrified when he saw me putting on a *scream UNironed fitted sheet on the bed. I had spent ages ironing the rest of the bedding (duvet and pillow covers) and two kids' bedding so this royally pissed me off. So, tell me I'm not being unreasonable All you normal folks with your heads screwed on correctly.

If I bothers him, he can iron it. Otherwise, he accepts the way things are.

If he wants it ironed, then he irons it. Simple solution, you’re not his maid.

I’ve never ironed bedding.

It’s not usual - If he wants to, fine - but he does it.

I don't iron anything. I don't even know where the iron is anymore

We have a steamer for anything that might need it, but that's very rare

If DP wanted anything ironed, he'd do it himself

I don't iron any bedding. I iron as little as I can get away with. If your OH is so bothered let him do the ironing.

I only iron clothes for formal occasions Grin

If it bothers him, he can iron the fitted sheet 🤷🏼‍♀️

I only iron bed linen when I’m having guests to stay, otherwise making the bed with the sheets fresh from dryer is enough.

Life’s to short for ironing bedding! And lots of other things. He can iron them if he’s that bothered!

I don't iron any bedding. And iron as little as I can generally. Usually just some tops for me and the kids school shirts.

If he wants it ironed - then he can iron it

I do iron fitted sheets and other bedding BUT if I didn't want to and the other person sharing the bed had a problem with it I'd show them where the iron was and tell them to crack on. YANBU.

I don’t iron anything unless it’s absolutely necessary. If he’s that bothered then he can do it. Bet you a million pounds he’s not that bothered.

My husband bought me an iron as a joke present on our wedding day 5 years ago. It’s never been used. In fact the most I have ever handled an iron was probably when I was a teenager in the 90’s and GHD’s weren’t a thing yet.

I iron all the other bedding but not fitted sheets though do attempt to fold neatly ish. My SIL can fold a fitted sheet beautifully which I am envious of so I guess I am verging on the danger line.

I do iron all mine, but I even iron tea towels and my boys boxers, but i love ironing, not sure why but I do. I don't know anyone else to iron like I do though, and its not the case of having smooth clothes bedding as kids just ram clothes into draws anyway

I don't iron anything. I dry them on a rack without creases.

Ironing sheets is the sort of batshit thing housewives did in the 50s to fill the endless hours of housework nothingness. If he wants to iron sheets, he can iron sheets. No normal person irons sheets.

I don’t iron any sheets, ever.

I pull them taut and dry them hanging flat and smooth, all fine.

I don’t even iron the duvet cover. I embrace the creases 😁
