AIBU?

To ask what bedsheets I need to buy

To get that crisp feeling you get from really good hotel bedsheets?

I've bought expensive sheets, cheap sheets, it doesn't matter - they never feel as good as hotels. Where am I going wrong?

100% cotton and (unfortunately) an iron are the only way to get that hotel feeling

Bollocks. I knew someone was going to say I've gotta iron them

I suspect hotels use starch. That’s what I’d try, although personally i prefer older, softer bed linen for comfort

2000 thread count or over & iron (yuk!) l

Iron and possibly starch

Pure cotton (preferably Egyptian or pima cotton), high thread count and an ironing press but be warned that 1000 thread count feels like tent canvass and weights a ton when wet. I had some once upon a time, the novelty of crisp sheets wore off pretty quickly when I found out what the laundry commitment was.

Secret linen? Is that a brand?

Egyptian cotton sheets. I don't iron mine but I get the feeling you're talking about!
