Are you out of your mind???

Never ever iron any bedding, fitted or not. Jeez.

TheQueenOfQuotes · 20/08/2007 22:58

I don't - but DH does (I don't iron any sheets ) - haven't got a clue how he does it but it looks much nicer getting into freshly made bed with ironed sheets on than with crinkled ones

Good lord no!!!!

Are you that bored?

Iron sheets?

paddingtonbear1 · 20/08/2007 22:59

I don't iron any bedding either. so long as it's clean, that's enough for me...

[faints at the thought of ironing sheets]

Tommy · 20/08/2007 23:02

sheets? iron?

TooTicky · 20/08/2007 23:03

Blimey, I've given up on folding them!

BecauseImWorthIt · 20/08/2007 23:08

I thought that was the whole point of fitted sheets - that it stretches the creases out of them!

hatwoman · 20/08/2007 23:09

I assume that in order to iron them you have to take them off the bed?

clumsymum · 20/08/2007 23:11

I have never ironedx sheets, towels, underwear, or anything that you can get away without ironing.

Life is tooo bl%%dy short.....

Hulababy · 20/08/2007 23:13

I have never ironed any bedding!

blossomsmine · 20/08/2007 23:16

When i am trying to be 'Anthea' i will iron bedding, this never lasts long though. I just go mad with the iron all over apart from the elastic bits at the edges. Must say it always looks nicer......then i fold them the Anthea way!!!! But although this sounds really only happens occassionally!!

TequilaMockinBird · 20/08/2007 23:36

I put the fitted sheets on the bed straight from the line and iron them there!

Clary · 20/08/2007 23:43

No it's too hard.

Do iron duvet covers and pillowcases tho.

GooseyLoosey · 20/08/2007 23:47

An iron - oh yes, one of those things that ds looks at and says "grandma has one of those".

Lizzer · 21/08/2007 00:21

LOL goosey, so true!!!

fortyplus · 21/08/2007 00:40

Of course not. If it's not seen by the general public it's not ironed.

That's my mantra.

And the wife agrees too.

(I am the only man i know that does the ironing and i can't belive that i am answering a thread about ironing tips - please don't tell the guys or i will be lynched OK?.....)
