Hi ,I am pulling my hair out Evil or Very Mad and hope this is okay to post on here Exclamation

I do Gite changeovers which includes washing and ironing the bedding and I am just useless at ironing the fitted sheets they always end up more creased than when I take them off of the line Rolling Eyes
Please does anybody have any suggestions, I'm loosing my sanity fast

PS Actually when I say "Nothing whatever to do with Horses" doing the Gite changeovers actually pays for their upkeep so,technically....................... Laughing

SNAP.....me too, Like you say it pays for the ponies. I iron the fitted sheets on the bed, [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] I have the iron on the hottest, with loads of steam, it works for me.

if you buy the stretchy kind they don't need ironing, any creases pull out after a bit or if you pref' the cotton type shove 'em in a tumble dryer for 5 min just as they are 99% dry ready to finish drying,

or tell guests not to be so bleep fussy (joke!!!!)

We run a guest house here, so I know where you're coming from. Some good tips already from the other guys but you can also take them off the line before they are fully dry, just vaguely damp, and put them on the mattress, tucking the corners under so they are nice and tight. Then leave making the rest of the bed for a bit while you get the other chores out of the way, which lets them finish drying. Not as neat and crisp as ironing but quite acceptable.

ironing the sheets on the bed sounds a good idea, sorry i can't help as i have'nt ironed anything for 20 years, and no one has ever said i look unironed, if you know what i mean, but i do take out the washing as soon as its done and shake it well and hang on line immediately.
